JT Tech Show Featuring AkihabaraNews: Interview with Molcure's Eli Lyons (PODCAST)
The JT Tech Show with Reno J. Tibke, Presented by Japan Today
Covering Japan and Asia tech, the cool and the cultural, Japan Today presents AkihabaraNews Editor Reno J. Tibke's quick & informative overview of the week's top news, industry trends, and guest interviews with tech insiders. The JT Tech Show might be the best weekly Japan tech podcast in all the universe.
Interview with Eli Lyons & Brief Tech News Summary:
"Today Reno interviews Eli Lyons, the Chief Development Officer at Molcure Inc., an antibody-drug-focused biopharmaceutical start-up company. This not-so-technical discussion gives you a look at antibody discovery, why it is important, the role it plays in personalized medicine, and the need to make the process cheaper.
Reno and Eli also talk about the playing field for start-ups and the level of innovation (sometimes lack thereof) in Japan, upcoming events for start-ups, incubators, and new shared workspaces like MONO. Eli is a wealth of knowledge on the subject as he is currently involved with multiple start-ups while simultaneously working to wrap up his Ph.D at the University of Tokyo.
Reno also brings us up to date on Japan tech news and the new 10% sales tax on digital goods and services purchased in Japan from abroad, wherein offshore vendors would be required to make tax payments to Japan."
