Today’s episode features the CEO of Tome Biosciences, Rahul Kakkar, alongside John Finn, CSO of Tome. They are joined by Jorge Conde, general partner at a16z Bio + Health.

Together, the three of them discuss the technology underlying Tome’s work, known as PASTE, a genome editing technique. They also dive deep into how this technology could be applied to help patients, making cell therapy more accessible for more people.

Editorial note: We mistakenly identified Rahul Kakkar and John Finn as the co-founders of Tome Biosciences. In reality, Rahul serves as the CEO, and John is the CSO of Tome. The actual co-founders of Tome Biosciences are Jonathan Gootenberg and Omar Abudayyeh.
