Rock Boston Startup Profile: ZeroSum Health
By Malay Gandhi
Today is the first in a series of profiles of Rock Boston’s summer startups. With us today is the crack team from ZeroSum Health, all of whom joined us here in Boston from Johns Hopkins University Medical and Graduate Schools. The team includes Ralph Passarella, Michael Lin, Joe Abrahamson and Henry Li.
What big health care problem are you solving?
Have you been able to use the local clinical expertise supporting Rock Boston?
Absolutely. For example, we recently met with Dr. Stan Shaw, M.D., Ph.D., a founding faculty member of the Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Systems Biology. He has helped us understand how medicine’s knowledge of the human phenotype will continue to complement our expanding knowledge of the genotype and how that could affect our company in the future.
What has been the best part of being in Boston?
What music are you currently hacking/coding to?
Foster the People, Jack White, The Alabama Shakes, TuNe-yArDs, Neil Diamond, Miike Snow and Kishi Bashi are currently on rotation across the team.
