Stan­ford star on­col­o­gy sci­en­tist Ed En­gle­man helped cre­ate the im­munother­a­py field. Now he wants to shake up neu­rode­gen­er­a­tion R&D

Over the last gen­er­a­tion of drug R&D, Ed En­gle­man has been a stand­out sci­en­tist.

He’s spurred a slate of star­tups, as­sist­ed by his well-con­nect­ed perch as a co-founder of Vi­vo Cap­i­tal, and took the den­drit­ic cell sto­ry in­to its next chap­ter at a start­up called Bolt.
