He then attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he earned his Ph.D. in Chemistry. He conducted his research in the laboratory of Richard R. Schrock while attending MIT. In 1985 Richard R. Schrock was awarded with the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in chemistry.
Expansion Therapeutics has been working towards battling genetic disorders. Myotonic dystrophy 1 type is the prevalent cause of adult muscular dystrophy. The company is spending $55.3 million to battle this disease. 5AM Ventures along with Kleiner Perkins and the Novartis Venture Fund all participated in the financing.
Molecules converted into proteins after a DNA transfer are called RNA’s. When the production of these molecules becomes toxic within the cells DM1 occurs. This causes defects in the heart, gastrointestinal system, respiratory system, muscles, hormonal system, and the central nervous system. DMI often affects complete generations and becomes worse with the passage of time and the new generations. This disease does not have an effective treatment available at this time.
The research performed by 5AM’s Managing Partner Scott Rocklage and Matthew Disney at the laboratory is used by Expansion Therapeutics. It has become apparent small molecule medications can be used to address diseases related to RNA. The treatments required by the individuals with the most crucial medical needs are getting much closer. The team plans to continue until they are successful. Expansion Therapeutics and Dr. Scott Rocklage are working together so the small molecule medical field can be advanced to target RNA. Their work is important in the creation of medications for patients with no options. These medications can potentially treat illnesses triggered by RNA.
For a stellar entrepreneur, inventor, programmer, and cryptocurrency enthusiast like Jed McCaleb, he is in a class all to himself. McCaleb has made a name for himself in the world of technology and entrepreneurism. And when it comes to blockchain, cryptocurrency and Bitcoin payments, McCaleb has a lot to say and do in this niche. Recently, McCaleb focused on his newest Internet and cryptocurrency-based endeavor called Stellar.org.
McCaleb produced the first centralized exchange for trading cryptocurrency called Mt. Gox. At its peak, bustling Mt. Gox accounted for approximately 80 percent of all cryptocurrency that was being exchanged. McCaleb sold Mt. Gox not long after he built it. McCaleb still owns a 12 percent share of Mt. Gox. For McCaleb, being on the forefront of technology trends as an entrepreneur is a key part of what has made him a success story.
McCaleb got started in entrepreneurship and platform building using his programming prowess in 1999. McCaleb started the peer-to-peer file-sharing software program, eDonkey. It was a P2P based network of nodes that were able to download files. Napster.com was a popular P2P and eDonkey were being used at around the same time.
Fast forward to present days, and McCaleb foresees blockchain technology being a real driver behind universal processes and protocols that involve banking transactions and stock trading. The Stellar Development Foundation was created by Jed McCaleb, and co-founder, Joyce Kim to oversee the building out of the Stellar protocol.
Stellar.org could be the key to unleashing the potential with this untapped business sector. The idea behind Stellar.org is to function as an internet-level protocol for payments made using cryptocurrency. Stellar.org works in the same way that a non-profit would, but with an open source model that is open to all people, especially the 2 billion people who currently have no banking institution. Open source provides a level of trust because financial entities cannot change the model.
One of the key components to Stellar.org is that McCaleb’s network uses a new mode of consensus called the federated Byzantine agreement, a model that was created by Stanford University professor, David Mazieres.
