Deep Dive Webinars 

Twice a month our analyst team reviews an emerging trend with interested listeners — healthcare on the first Wednesday of the month at 9am CT and Agriculture on the third Wednesday of the month at 9am CT — outlining macro-trends, industry sub-sectors, key influencers and luminaires, market leaders, and potential investment opportunities.

As a valued member of our advisory network, your feedback on the presentation is greatly appreciated.  Please don’t hesitate to respond with suggestions, comments, or questions — we always appreciate the opportunity to improve.

Medical Foods

While food and nutrition play key roles in our health, medical foods go a step further. Medical foods are formulated to manage nutritional deficiencies that affect disease progression and are prescribed…


Artificial Intelligence in Medical Diagnostics

Diagnosing, detecting and monitoring disease is one of the highly lauded potential applications of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in healthcare. The potential of these technologies to reduce time…


Non-invasive Cancer Diagnostics

In 2019, over 600,000 people died from cancer in the United States alone. One of the primary drivers behind high mortality rates in cancer is late diagnosis. For this reason, there…


Therapeutics Role in Inflammation

The inflammatory response is critical to our survival, helping us heal from injury and defend against disease. Chronic inflammation, however, has implications in a number of widespread and devastating diseases, including…


Longitudinal Data in Healthcare

Longitudinal health data track the same patient at different points in time. For physicians, longitudinal data can offer a complete medical history of a patient, which allows for better health decisions…


Autoimmune Disease

In a healthy person, the immune system fights off viruses and bacteria. However, autoimmune diseases result in the body using its own immune defenses against itself, the body it was designed…


Blood Based Cancer Diagnostics

Testing patients for cancer has typically involved a tissue biopsy – collecting the cells in question for closer examination. However, these tests can be invasive, risky, costly, and painful. Liquid biopsies,…


Why Bioavailability Is Becoming the Next Buzzword in Food and Agriculture

Often, when discussing how to improve the food system, we discuss how to improve the quantity and access to healthy and sustainable nutrition, usually through a lens of yield improvement, and…


Nutrition’s Role in Inflammation

Research shows that chronic inflammation may be the common factor in many diseases. iSelect invests at the convergence of food and health and is interested in nutrition’s role in inflammation. We…


Nutritional Genomics

Everything in life is connected. The work we put in is equal to the value we get out of those efforts. The time we spend preparing for something is proportional to…


Anti-microbial resistance

Antimicrobial Resistance in Infectious Disease & Human Health

Antibiotics, one of the major medical discoveries of the 20th Century, have enabled humans to treat a wide array of bacterial infections that once caused significant death and suffering. For this…


Type 2 Diabetes Technology

Type 2 Diabetes

iSelect invests at the intersection of food and health. Perhaps no other disease indication fits this description better than diabetes. Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes affect 30 million people in…


Nutrition in Healthcare

Nutrition plays a key role in health and wellbeing. The role of nutrition, which can modify the genetic base, is crucial to the Human life cycle. It’s a science that deals…

Brain Computer Interface Analysis

In the last century, we greatly expanded the notion of what it means to be human. Remarkable innovations in both science and technology brought us to the moon, laid the foundation…


Brain Computer Interfaces Overview

In the last century, we greatly expanded the notion of what it means to be human. Remarkable innovations in both science and technology brought us to the moon, laid the foundation…


AI in Drug Discovery

The advancements in artificial intelligence today are continuously widespread in their use, and the costly and time-consuming drug development process is no exception. From the process of discovering new compounds, to…


CRISPR Gene Therapeutics in Humans

Until recently, gene editing was extremely expensive and took several months, even years. However, with the discovery of CRISPR/Cas-9, costs have shrunk by 99% and tests can be run in days/weeks….


Alzheimer’s Disease: Therapeutics

Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) presents many challenges at the individual, family and health system levels. From the therapeutics perspective, AD presents the highest failure rate for drug development of any disease indication…


Traumatic Brain Injury Diagnostics

Traumatic Brain Injury is arguably one of the most complex disorders in the human body. Recent advances in 3D imaging technologies and blood-based biomarker identification have proven to be significant advances…


Senolytics

As we age, our cells enter a state called senescence. These harmful cells do not support the cells of which they are a part, and as we grow older, their accumulation…


Alzheimer’s Disease: Diagnostics

Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) presents many challenges at the individual, family, and health system levels. One way in which the burdens caused by this disease could be mitigated would be the development…


Joint Warfighter Medical Research Program

Whether it is to provide public services or stimulate the economy, various grant-making agencies within the U.S. Federal Government help propel innovation driven by science and technology. The U.S. Department of…


Microbiome Therapeutics for Humans

Therapeutics targeting ways to influence the human microbiome to either treat or prevent disease has been of substantially growing interest in the past decade, and as of late, with a lot…


Multi-Omic Approach to Precision Diagnostics

Exploring the recent advances in medical technology to drive a multi-omics approach to Precision Diagnostics. Multi-omic approaches, or Panomics, utilize massive datasets to view the biological interactions within the entire complex…


Precision Cancer Medicine

Exploring the recent advances in medical technology to drive a multi-omics approach to Precision Medicine in the field of Oncology. Multi-omic approaches, or Panomics, utilize massive datasets to view the biological…


Alternative Proteins

Protein is one of the basic building-blocks of life, something that just about every living thing on Earth needs to survive. But not all proteins are created equally. Until recently, animal…


Blood-Based Cancer Diagnostics

New cancer diagnoses are expected to rise by 70% in the next two decades. Early detection of cancer greatly reduces survival rates. Current standards of care are either highly invasive/highly accurate…


Lighting

This deep dive presentation covers lighting and the emerging knowledge base around its impact on the health, growth and behavior of humans, plants and animals, a topic of increasing interest to iSelect.


Biohacking

Young people aren’t just using 23andMe to find out who their ancestors are, they’re digging deeper to find the “right” set of vitamins, drugs, probiotics, food, etc so that they can be…
