Providing answers for every biological question

Episode 76: Live Long and Master Aging

Sean Vassilaros is the Chief Operating Officer with THREAD, a virtual research platform that helps researchers gather data for clinical research.  The company has developed the concept of a virtual visit.  It enables researchers to connect with patients and volunteers via a video chat instead of requiring them to attend on-site clinic visits.

The idea is that it saves time and money over conventional ways to carry out research, but still produces reliable and secure data.

In this LLAMA podcast interview, with peter Bowes Sean explains how the platform works and his “lofty” goal of helping researchers provide answers for "every biological question."
