About Mendelspod.com

Mendelspod was founded in 2011 by Theral Timpson and Ayanna Monteverdi to advance life science research, connecting people and ideas. Influenced by the thinking tools developed by Eli Goldratt, the founders bring a unique approach to media in the life sciences. With help from our advisors around the industry, Mendelspod goes beyond quick sound bites to create a space for probing conversations and deep insight into the topics and trends which shape our future.


Theral Timpson, Host and Producer

Ayanna Monteverdi, Executive Producer


Mendelspod produces engaging, thoughtful thirty minute shows twice a week on highly relevant topics to those working around the life sciences. Our format enables us to go in depth with scientists who are leaders in their field, or CEOs of high growth companies to explore trends and the latest technologies. At Mendelspod, we offer a front row seat to the revolution going on in biology, putting a human face on some complicated, highly technical topics. Here you can tune in to hear Steve Burrill give his 'state of the industry' overview, or listen to George Church talk about art and science, or find out how the latest developments in NGS are helping in the war on cancer.
