Bioethics from the Beginning

Ursheet Parikh, Mayfield
and Trevor Martin, Mammoth Biosciences
In conversation with: Ravi Belani, Stanford University

Trevor Martin, co-founder and CEO of Mammoth Biosciences, observes that while biotech companies can’t predict where their technology will lead them in the future, they can build an ethical framework from the beginning by using the company’s values as a lens for decision-making. Ursheet Parikh, partner at Mayfield and investor in Mammoth Biosciences, adds that an ethical culture involves making employees feel empowered to point out problems without repercussions.
