#223 Drew Taylor - Save Your Cells to Stay Younger

High Energy Girl

As an entrepreneur and regenerative medicine pioneer, Drew Taylor is making breakthrough medicine accessible for everyday people. Drew’s interest in regenerative medicine goes all the way back to seventh grade when he observed a total knee replacement. After the surgery, the doctor told him that, someday, people would use their own cells to heal their bodies. Ever since Drew’s fascination with regenerative medicine has only grown. Drew is used to juggling a full life; while obtaining his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Toronto, Drew also competed as a pitcher in professional baseball. After a career-ending injury forced him to give up his sports career, Drew devoted himself fully to medicine, first working as part of Mount Sinai Hospital’s BioEngineering of Skeletal Tissues Team, then as Chief Science Officer at Epic Capital Management. Drew wanted to help people find a way to use their own tissue to live not only longer but better. So in 2017, Drew co-founded Acorn Biolabs, a company dedicated to helping more people access the future of regenerative medicine by providing affordable, accessible, and non-invasive cell banking. Cryopreservation isn’t just science fiction anymore; with Acorn, Drew helps people prepare to live longer, look better, and get ahead of aging so they are ready for the future of regenerative medicine.

EP109: The Future of Regenerative Medicine with Dr. Drew Taylor and Sachin Patel

Perfect Practice

Sachin Patel and Dr. Drew Taylor discuss Drew’s early foray into medicine when he shadowed an orthopedic surgeon doing total knee arthroplasty, Drew’s interest in following his father into baseball and medicine, and how Drew earned his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering. With that background, Drew started Acorn Biolabs, a laboratory that helps you cryogenically store young stem cells from your hair follicles against a future time when medical advances will allow you to use the stem cells to create new skin, tissues, and organs to prolong your life. Key Takeaways: [1:03] Sachin welcomes listeners to today’s episode! This is a special interview with Dr. Drew Taylor, a serial entrepreneur and professional athlete, who is helping extend people’s life spans using hair! Dr. Taylor plucks hair and freezes it cryogenically in a Toronto lab to preserve stem cells for future needs. [2:47] Dr. Taylor tells the story of his interest in biomedicine and longevity. He picked total-knee arthroplasty for his seventh-grade science fair project. He was permitted to scrub in and shadow a surgeon to observe a total knee replacement surgery. The next day, he accompanied the surgeon on rounds and watched the patient stand up out of bed and embrace the surgeon. [4:54] Drew talked to the surgeon about witnessing this emotional experience for the patient. The surgeon told him that the metal and plastic parts will eventually wear down and the patient will be back for revision surgery. The surgeon predicted that in the future this operation will be done with the patient’s cells to replace cartilage, bone, and tissues. [6:23] Years later, Drew worked at the same hospital on a biomedical skeletal tissues engineering team with the Division of Orthopedics, trying to engineer joints for patients on demand. It was his science fair experience that led him there. [8:42] Drew attended Baseball Spring Training after college but he was injured before the regular season, so he never played in the Major Leagues. He played for both the Blue Jays and the Phillies on their Minor League squads. Drew became a Ph.D. student in biomedical engineering at the University of Toronto while he played baseball. [11:22] Drew explains stem cells. The embryonic stem cell can form any cell. They are pluripotent. Other stem cells have started to develop but can still become one of several cells. They are multipotent. Technology takes time to develop to a level to benefit people. [16:36] Drew’s company Acorn Biolabs focuses on giving clients access to their cells. Taking donor cells always carries a risk of rejection or tumors. The patients receiving their cells is always the best choice. [18:19] Acorn Biolabs collects cells from clients while they are younger. Younger cells are better than older cells to leverage for the rest of your life. Sachin points out that nothing can fix your body better than it can fix itself. [22:04] Drew addresses how and when it is best to harvest cells. Acorn harvests hair follicles, which have thousands of stem cells. The quality of the hair follicle begins to decline as early as in the twenties. About 50 hair follicles are plucked per client and placed in a solution. [24:59] Drew explains the process for protecting the harvested cells for transport and freezing them to -190 degrees Celsius for when you need them in the future. [27:50] Acorn Biolabs has some amazing methodologies they use to develop different cells you may need or the frozen cells can be sent to the laboratory of your choice. Drew lists some of the products the cells can produce. [31:22] Drew shares an example of a use case in research and development: creating your pancreas islet beta cells to produce insulin for type 1 diabetics. This project will take years before human application. Other use cases are closer, such as producing collagen to deliver to the skin. Hair regrowth and wound closures are other potential use cases and sports injuries. [34:05] Drew’s brother is a type 1 diabetic. Drew made sure his follicles were banked as quickly as possible so he would have his youngest cells cryogenically preserved and available. Drew believes in his brother’s lifetime we will see these things made possible. [34:41] Drew addresses correcting problems with auto-immune diseases. Auto-immune problems are multi-layered and will take time to solve. Gene editing technologies like CRISPR can help eliminate some problems. Three-D printing of organs is on the horizon. [37:13] The biggest ethical considerations have been mitigated. The new technologies do not use embryonic stem cells. We can reprogram your cells. The importance is in intercepting your cells at their best. [39:11] It’s difficult to predict for any individual at what age cells are not viable. Acorn Biolabs does not put a cut-off age for individuals to harvest their cells. The younger, the better. [41:51] Drew says there’s a law of diminishing returns in working to maximize your health through lifestyle changes before harvesting your follicles. We are always getting older. Don’t wait too long. Sachin’s lifestyle health programs last 10 to 12 weeks, so you can do both. [44:46] Drew shares how people can get in touch with Acorn Biolabs for more information. [45:39] Sachin thanks Drew Taylor for this dialog, invites patients and practitioners to consider this process for themselves, and signs off until the next episode.

Leveraging Technology for Your Healthiest Future Self with Dr. Drew Taylor

The Over 50 Health & Wellness Podcast

Do you remember the cartoon the Jetsons? How everything seemed so futuristic? And while we’re still aways from flying cars and having Rosie the robot clean our houses and wait on our beckon call, the future is here and it’s incredible. The Jetsons released their first episode 60 years ago back in 1962. Back before the internet. Before cell phones. Before 8 tracks, CDs, VHS tapes or DVDs. Before fax machines. And way before we had the ability to bank your stem cells and cryogenically freeze them for future use.My guest today is Dr. Drew Taylor. Drew is the co-founder and CEO of Acorn Biolabs, which is a company specializing in helping people preserve their own cells for help them prepare for future needs. Drew was a standout colligate athlete and professional baseball player, but ultimately got his PhD in biomedical engineering and now leads the charge to bringing accessible, non-invasive and affordable live cell collection and preservation to everyone.Join us this week as Drew shares how he went from a baseball player to CEO of a biomedical startup, and why people like you and me (and our children and grandchildren) should consider banking our cells today for a healthier tomorrow. I started our interview by asking Drew how he got interested in cell banking.You can connect with Drew and Acorn Biolabs in the following ways:Acorn BiolabsWebsite - https://get.acorn.me/Instagram – @acornbiolabsFacebook - @acornbiolabsDr. Drew TaylorTwitter – @DrewWTaylorInstagram - @drdrewtaylor Join the Over 50 Lean Body Blueprint private Facebook group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/3172506236368032
