1:52

molecular interactions protein stability and much much more so don't miss out


1:58

this episode it's the last one of the young review recording and you wouldn't


Unveiling the mastermind behind 2bind, Dr. Thomas Schubert


2:03

want to miss it join me as we dive into the world of biophysics with two band


2:12

Thomas good to see you hello hi folks they're coming now from antiviral


2:19

infections to the world of biophysics maybe you say some some words to


2:25

introduce you to Guido yeah so first of all Guido I also have kids and I can just completely share the point about


2:31

the respiratory diseases in the moment it's crazy kindergarten so also from my


2:36

side please speak there's a need I will I will it's really


2:41

annoying so everything is in the kindergarten it's crazy yeah um my name is Thomas I'm a managing


2:49

director at two mind we are a company in close to Munich in Regensburg and we're


2:56

biophysics folks um so we are offering Outsourcing solutions for drug Discovery


3:01

and Drug development and basically Supply people with um yeah an analysis


3:07

formats and Essay formats um so uh that's that's who I am and uh I I was


3:14

really amused and it was very nice to listen to you Guido about your approach


3:19

and uh yeah crossing fingers for for every new thing that you are going to develop really cool thank you Thomas


3:27

it's very nice to hear I'm very curious to learn what you guys are doing sure


3:32

perfect um yeah uh I think uh first of all


3:38

Christian thanks for the opportunity welcome uh it's really a pleasure I mean


3:43

uh our last discussion is I think like four or three weeks ago I guess so it's


3:48

nice to be back and and have this um yeah it's it's Pleasant to be here again really cool it's it's good it's


3:56

good to see you again I have a question to you too we were talking about entrepreneurship today and I have two


4:02

entrepreneurs now in the car um the same question to both of you so when


Insider tips for starting your own biotech company


4:09

a person is scientist approaches you and asks you for advice from your experience


4:17

um what's the single most important advice you would give to a scientist who would like to found a company


4:26

no I have to go first you have to go first okay I also have to think about it but


4:33

um I think um foreign good ideas there are several good ideas


4:39

out there um but sometimes um the business model is not clear


4:44

um I think scientists don't consider that um bringing an idea to Market really needs


4:51

more than an idea and there are Financial aspects behind and you have to have a proper team you have to have the


4:57

environment to do so and sometimes a good scientific idea is uh honestly not


5:03

good enough so surround yourself with um well known people from from the field


5:10

and discuss with them I think that is a very important advice that I could give


5:16

even though I'm you know our business uh is uh is maybe more easy because it's a


5:22

service fee for service business model that we have but for example um with a classical drug Discovery approach I


5:28

would definitely first of all talk to a lot of people um before I do anything an idea is not not enough


5:36

I mean I definitely couldn't agree more Thomas I think you know while you were starting out I thought is that about


5:42

pretty much the same that and I think um Christian we talked about it last week as well that you know sometimes when you


5:49

start out with a company or a spin-off or you you want to start something of your own you think that the idea is kind


5:55

of the big part of what you're going to be doing right but the very very big


6:01

part is actually like the larger part the larger fraction um is actually ahead of you of you still


6:08

right and it's um something that is heavily underestimated um but


6:14

I I I think I also want to want to finish with what we talked about beforehand be aware of your optimism


6:21

bias talk to people in the field and talk to people in the field try to get


6:26

some you know objective resonance from what you're planning to be doing


6:31

um and uh and yeah I think talking talking talking makes a lot of sense you need to be very I think the singer


6:38

singer most important characteristic of an entrepreneur is to be proactive


6:45

um and this is what you need to be doing right proactively talk to people go out


6:50

there shape your idea and be aware that it's going to be a very


6:55

too long long and but probably hopefully a very um also a fruitful path


7:04

it's not entrepreneurship it's not the way to quit money playing the lottery is much faster


7:11

last week I had Chivan from play fair capital and she also emphasized product


7:17

Market fit so I couldn't agreement so what you say thank you very much for your time I wish


7:23

you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and let's catch up in the new year and maybe we do a podcast episodes


7:29

together about your company it was great talking you might all the best merry


7:34

merry Christmas and happy New Year to both of you as well have a great time


A glimpse into the future: 2022 for 2bind's CEO


7:39

Thomas it's good to see you again absolutely because yeah how was your


7:45

2022 uh how was my 2022 I'm good I think overall


7:50

um so I'm really happy uh it was a challenging year um for us as company


7:56

um as to bind um indeed it was challenging uh there were challenges


8:01

starting with a Ward and covet lockdown and um you know inflation recession combined


8:08

all those things but um still I'm very proud about the team here at turbine um


8:14

even under these challenging conditions we made a brilliant job very happy um yeah good good year


8:22

what's excited you the most in 2022 what excited me the most um first of all


8:29

I mean honestly on a trivial level uh it was very exciting to go out again and


8:35

meet people that was also a little bit the the thing that we had in our podcast if you had some weeks ago it was really


8:42

I'm still excited about this it's really a pleasure to meet people again


8:48

uh all good also like now having this podcast together in the Stream format


8:54

it's great but um you know having really some some person in front of you and


9:00

really having a good chat uh this is something I really missed and I was very excited to have that back and of course


9:07

um yeah this excited me personally best exciting as I mentioned I was really excited about how things went here um at


9:15

the company and how we developed this was exciting for me too and um yeah I


9:21

think that's it yeah I couldn't agreement when I think uh last year and the year before it was mostly sitting at


9:28

home because everything everything was shut down and closed and now I can go to


9:34

a restaurant around the corner uh invite some people have a lunch have dinner or


9:40

just going to the gym meeting people or also conferences we met at the bio


9:46

Europe in Leipzig it's so awesome to have that back absolutely I miss this a


9:52

lot it's also on a personal level really I missed the connection to a lot of like


9:58

um friends in the business realm that I really missed and um of course you can write and you of course you can even you


10:04

can even have a digital beer together but the real beer is is the better way I don't know digital beer um it's uh yeah


10:12

yeah exactly that's yeah but you know having a real line over here that's much


10:17

better I mean I think um for me it's I think it's a good balance to have some


10:23

conversations uh digitally like recording video podcasts um it would be


10:29

very very challenging to fly all people in and uh to exchange information but uh


10:35

once in a while meeting in person I think it's it's necessary business doesn't flourish without that


Navigating the digital world: Pros and cons of technology in biotech


10:41

I can absolutely agree to that it's like it has to be a good mix yeah because what what I can't replicate with the


10:48

digital world the digital world is great when I know people are ready so reaching out to people I know and uh inviting


10:54

them to a podcast as possible um we met basically the accident uh


10:59

Sarah typically this was a pure chance that we didn't agree to meet in Leipzig


11:04

yeah we just pumped into each other yeah that's true and this this doesn't happen I never found a way to replicate that in


11:11

the digital world did you find a way to do that no um I mean there were some


11:18

approaches also to to have this kind of digital meetings in and at conferences


11:23

but I had the impression that this is not really uh leading to the right direction it's it's because people sit


11:31

at home and the daily work is ongoing and so it's just another you know date in in the time slot where you have a


11:38

meeting and there's not not you know when we met at Leipzig it was like prompting it into each other as we as


11:44

you just described it was because both of us were there and we were interested in learning about new people and not


11:51

about specific topic but just like who are you what are you doing and this format is I think that this is difficult


11:58

to find a this informal just being friendly hey how how are you doing uh in


12:04

in a digital world I'm not sure if this is possible I don't know but


12:11

I haven't found a way the metaverse has I mean um the technology already existed 20


12:18

years ago so it's basically nothing different than what people used in multi-massive online role-playing games


12:24

it's uh fun it's entertaining but it's still not the same so still this


12:30

community also thrived on meeting in real life and when I go through the last


12:37

20 years when I was in business I think most of the business evolved really from real life meetings that we are not


12:43

really planned at conferences or even events or lunch events and the minority evolved from set up


12:50

meetings through conference systems yeah I I think for for from for us at


12:57

least because we have a clear uh uh profile of what we can do and people can


13:02

can read up on that and it's it's clear that people come to us for outsourcing Solutions and biophysics there's no


13:09

misinterpretation possible so some of those those those meetings and when you lock them in a meeting conference


13:17

um or account this can be very efficient but I fully agree um the best


13:24

um let's say long-term relationships came from a situation uh which is


13:30

different from that um on a meeting but evening event or yeah it just met and uh Had a Good


13:39

Chemistry Between each other and um then there's some interest in each other and you learn and you like each other and


13:45

then suddenly it happens that you work together so I fully agree here both aspects but both possible and important


13:53

the the thing is with innovation in my opinion so with companies most of the companies I work with are trying to


13:59

start something new and uh sometimes when people start something new


14:05

um it's not really clear what they need and which help the needs because it's inability it's a new idea so the plan


14:12

has to be made yet and uh very often people are the first time doing this


Overcoming obstacles: A look at 2bind's supply chain challenges


14:17

thing and most entrepreneurs in deep deck are first timers because it's a very novel idea it's a noble technology


14:24

so what I found very helpful is uh meeting random people at events uh to


14:31

just be creative together and you can do that in five minutes or by coffee this


14:37

is what I'm doing this is what I'm looking for and then the person says okay I know this guy or I I it's a


14:43

similar thing in that way maybe you talk to this guy and I never found this happened really in the digital world


14:49

yeah yeah I fully agree this is this is a spirit of just you know like having


14:56

a close idea and um yeah bringing this to some point um this is difficult in in


15:01

a digital world in my eyes yeah when we talk about the big lessons besides


15:07

digital worlds and uh real-life worlds what was your biggest lesson of 2022


15:12

that you learned um I think there were two lessons uh one


15:18

lesson is a lesson on a let's say a learning from a negative situation and


15:24

the other one is from a positive situation and the the negative situation is that um you you mentioned it just in a


15:32

second uh at the beginning of the discussion in a in a small sentence is Supply chains so we really learned the


15:39

lesson that Supply chains are difficult in a globalized world um and specifically in an instable


15:46

political situations um Supply chains are extremely important and um you know our customers they they


15:54

uh drug Discovery guys that work with molecules from all around the globe and


16:00

and they send it to us to to to Regan's work to our laboratory and we analyze


16:05

these things so the samples come from different areas and so we had a lot of


16:10

molecules coming from close to Kiev from a large supply of chemical matter in our mind they had to temporarily shut down


16:17

because of the war so it was really taken a lot of uh you know effort


16:23

to solve that in the same moment few months later there was the Shanghai lockdown and every protein that that was


16:29

produced in Shanghai was stuck there so it was really a lesson what I I mean


16:35

it's not my personal level because it's a decision of of the customer where to purchase these things but my lesson is


16:42

um that um short supply chains and and accurate Supply chains


16:48

um that you you should prefer that and not go only for other


16:54

um yeah factors to decide why you choose this or that supplier this was a lesson


16:59

that was hard for us because of course we would depend on these things and obviously we need to organize ourselves


17:06

according to when samples arrive at our Laboratories then we can start out our


17:11

job and if the sample doesn't arrive then we cannot do our job so it was a lesson that I learned and um yeah


17:20

a good lesson was on the other hand side that um just like two weeks ago


17:26

um we we had a internal um customer survey so we sent out a


17:31

survey to our customers and um first of all um from 70 customers that we approached


17:38

uh more than 40 answered which is already a great success and then what they told us was extremely positive and


17:45

the lesson what I learned from that is that we are at most of the points that we are wanted to you know addressed in


17:53

the last years we're on the right track so there's a good lesson so I'm really happy about this so these two kind of


17:58

lessons I think I learned from from this year that's great that's great to hear


18:03

that your customers love what you do things you're always good to hear that you know and so for us it's only an


18:09

internal thing we share that with the laboratory and with the with the staff because uh this is for our internal


18:15

revenue or you know recapitulation of what we do and um so the feedback was


Game-changing developments in biophysics for 2022


18:21

extraordinarily good and so um I think there's we do something good I guess yeah this was cool when we think


18:29

it's of the world of biophysics what were breakthrough moments in biophysics


18:35

in 2022 um um I I think application of biophysics I


18:43

would say break breakthrough moments for applications and biophysics I think that's maybe the better wording


18:49

biophysics itself of course it also changes there are new technologies coming out and indeed um very


18:56

interesting ones but I think um the importance of biophysics um in uh 2022


19:03

was even more pronounced or more let's say valued


19:08

um the reason is because first of all a lot of different approaches now need a direct binding


19:14

determination drug Discovery antibody development and so on and so on and it turns out that this is extremely


19:20

important and um I think that is definitely a breakthrough and that the biophysics 10


19:27

years ago it was more a side life science part and now it's getting more into the center of drug Discovery


19:34

projects and getting more and more important um of course to be fair it's not just


19:39

2020 effort it's already started before so it is a constant increase of


19:44

biophysics need it's not just the 2020 year that made all that but I think it


19:50

turns out that this is more and more important and I call this a breakthrough let's let's go through yeah I also was


What's next for the industry? A preview of biophysics trends to come


19:56

amazed at the biophysics podcast has a very good reception so I saw it on uh on LinkedIn that many people liked it and


20:03

then listen to that um it seems to be more and more interesting the industry around this


20:09

topic which was uh which was very great to see um when we talk about the future Trends


20:15

now about biophysics uh where do you see this area heading to and first of all um


20:23

that the throughput will increase so throughput means that you can run more


20:28

samples in a shorter time and um by doing that you can of course achieve more and achieve more in terms of you


20:35

can screen large libraries or you can make more detailed analysis and this


20:41

means it will get more share on on the complete analysis Market let's call it and um here there is definitely a Trends


20:49

going to higher throughput and even throughput that could match up with some of the biochemical essays where


20:54

enzymatic activities are read out so this is something that definitely is something that is coming there's a trend


21:01

and the other trend is to also use biophysics in more um yeah difficult environments so far


21:08

biophysics has been done always in the in a context of in vitro uh artificial


21:13

buffer systems where a completely random buffer is chosen nothing to do with the


21:18

cell and um the trend goes towards more let's say close to Native analysis or


21:25

even analysis on on whole cells so there's for example the creoptic system


21:30

that comes out or is just came out five days ago officially launched


21:36

um uh which is now uh the Helix cycle it's called which can analyze kinetics


21:41

on a cell which is amazing so you can read out an antibody binding to a cell and this is just mind-blowing the


21:49

opportunities that now opens up so this is really cool too therefore there are these kind of Trends


21:56

in biophysics indeed what it is uh breakthroughs come from why didn't we see that what was the


22:04

change in technology that was necessary to generate this breakthrough um


22:11

because of a growing need over the years more money went into that area and then


22:17

I have to also say that in the last let's say 10 12 years quite a number of very Innovative new companies have been


22:25

brought up um like Nano tamper queer Optics uh DBS


22:30

and and others which are really uh like Innovative per se and they now benefit


22:36

from from having uh you know this this settled by physics Community but now


22:43

growing with new technologies and I think that's where the Innovation come from very good people together with a


22:50

growing need so you said uh as the first sentence first there's more money flowing into


22:55

this area um so money seems really to be the fuel necessary to to uh to bring technology


23:03

to fruition yeah every the need of course I mean if there's a certain need and you and and


23:09

if a good scientist um has a sense of Entrepreneurship as well yeah that's


23:15

also needed uh and and there's a potential situation where also money can be earned and then I I think that's also


Peeking into the crystal ball: 2bind's plans for 2023


23:22

part of the fuel yes not not purely money but um part of the fuel is also


23:27

money of course sure what are your plans for 2023 with your company


23:34

we have actually uh indeed a big plan so um we will move to a larger lab space or


23:41

at least we start to to restructure our laboratory we will get a new lab space with more than a thousand square meters


23:47

and this is of course quite a big part of what we do next year at least on my end because obviously this has to be


23:53

coordinated and uh yeah building up a lab is is not easy but it's a great


23:59

achievement and we're really looking forward to that and um then of course it's also getting more people in there


24:05

and there are also some ideas to bring in more um yeah Technologies in here um to be able to support our customers


24:12

even in a better way by having more than that that than the other 11 technologies


24:17

that we have in the moment so that's the plan for next year and and also the plan is to visit more


Mark your calendars: Upcoming conferences featuring 2bind in 2023


24:25

people and enjoy the conversation that's a that's a very good plan which conferences do you have from your


24:31

program and so the buyers I I will definitely go to the buy convention um it's in Boston I will do some medcam


24:38

approaches the Festival of biologic uh conference is the Festival of biologics


24:44

and Basel um we'll be there um I'm at the bio Korea I'm not sure about the bio Japan this


24:51

year next year I'm not not fixed on that um so until I think it's seven six or


24:57

seven conferences I I can do I have to admit I I also need to take a little bit


25:02

care about the family but uh yeah I think uh this is


25:10

definitely um something that I'm excited about next year anything body parts do you


25:16

mentioned bio career what's so special at the Korean ecosystem that's right yeah for your company absolutely good


25:22

question because um the Koreans start to build up quite intense and and and


25:29

um yeah versatile or let's say Lively biotech community so um they really


25:35

um now push push companies by very interesting let's say uh concepts of how


25:41

they can build up their business and career and of course there's money starting to go go in there and also larger companies


25:48

are now settling there and so there's a new ecosystem um being developed and um of course it's


25:56

a good approach to be there early on and um yeah to to be present so we have


26:02

already some very um good connections to Korea and a very successful work with those guys and it's


26:09

a good opportunity to go there to visit them first place and then of course buy a career itself it's a good opportunity


26:15

to present ourselves to the um yeah new environment that is growing


26:21

there North Korea is a lovely country the last time I was there I think was in 2017 so


26:26

it's a couple of years ago uh what the grades would be great to to fly there


26:31

um you mentioned before your um supply chain problems I had this a couple of times in this recording


26:39

session um was it really that's the challenging uh price wise and Logistics wise


26:47

um I mean I think you have to differentiate between two different kind of Supply chains the supply chain for


26:54

our consumables in our material that we need for our analysis internally we had on a good control so here


27:01

a few plastic where uh stuff was was a little bit troubling troubling to get


27:07

um this was not a big challenge I would say but this is also due to the fact that most of our suppliers are from


27:14

Europe um specifically from Germany so and they are quite reliable so here from this


27:20

perspective it was not a big challenge but as I mentioned so our customers which are drug developer which you know


27:27

solves their molecules which we do we don't produce molecules we don't we neither produce proteins nor we do


27:34

produce any chemical matter we don't do that so people need to send us these


27:39

things and they purchase this in different countries and obviously then


27:45

there was the the Suez Canal thing then there was the Shanghai lockdown then there was the start of the Ukraine war


27:52

and all those things come together and then suddenly a situation emerges that nobody can tell you when samples arrive


27:59

and here um minimum I would say five to eight to five to even ten boxes of with


28:05

dry ice full of molecules arrive every day and so the logistics team had no


28:10

idea where things are or at least tried to get figured out but nobody could tell


28:15

them the package is here and you have to do that because there was chaos so


28:22

um this was troubling so it is modeled supply chain of bringing together the material that we need to analyze so this


28:30

this was the trouble not the internal resources so principally


28:35

unpredictability of the supply chain so not knowing when when what will when


28:41

arrive in both States and Weeks Later months later exactly and of course by


28:48

biological material is not super stable so you need to refill dry ice you never know how does the sample arrive here is


28:55

it still in good shape you don't even know if there was at some point maybe no dry ice in there anymore and it was just


29:02

added nobody tells you so this is difficult and if uh you know uh really


29:08

like the the high quality packages which uh have a temperature


29:14

logger in there they are simply very expensive a lot of people send this by other means and there is no control of


29:21

what's in there so you don't know what how the temperature changed and you don't know how the biologics react on


29:27

that and so this was a bit challenging and I have to admit um so for for for us


29:32

for the customer of course because um they end the same boat as we are so we would love to start they would love


29:39

us to start but nobody could start because the things are not here so I was yeah a bit a bit annoying I have to say


29:46

but we found uh very good solutions for that and um the team did an incredible


29:51

job and the the result and the present that the customer gave us was was this


29:57

incredible survey at the end of the year so everybody's happy which is a good sign


30:02

but it was challenging do you see did the supply chains are going back to normal or are there still some


30:08

challenges left and there are still some challenges left but everything goes better now


30:14

um it seems to be more predictable so as you mentioned the unpredictability was


30:20

the main problem because you never know what happened and now things are getting more ordered and more in a clear way and


30:28

I mean everybody can you know agree that a package is sent to you maybe a week


30:33

later if the package a week later will arrive so then it's fine but if it


30:39

doesn't arrive a week later and maybe also two weeks later not or even three weeks later not if this is the problem problem so


30:46

um yeah no everything is now getting uh back to normal I would say at least is


Bold predictions for the biotech industry in 2023


30:52

that this is what we see Thomas I'm coming to the end of this recording session from uh about uh 12


30:58

p.m this afternoon to now and I can ask the final question now to you uh your


31:05

big prediction for 2023 what will happen in 2023 what will happen in 2023 uh who


31:12

open big question at the end so first of all from a perspective of


31:18

Bio physics and bio technology and so it is I think overall one can say that I we


31:24

think that the investment landscape will change a little bit um I think uh there might be overall


31:30

less money in the market for us as a company as a zero as a provider for analytical Services I doubt that this


31:36

will really harm us because people when the bill probably still do a lot of Outsourcing even more pronounced so I


31:43

think that will happen um uh but uh of course my hope is of


31:48

course that people try to or should try to listen also to the silent voices uh


31:55

not only the the loud and strong voices are that one that you should be listened because sometimes these strong voices


32:02

don't have very uh or maybe they have very weak ideas so I hope that this will


32:07

happen that people listen more to also science courses so yeah I I hope for


32:13

that but it's a hope I don't know if it happens I couldn't agree more just because


32:18

somebody is loud and outspoken doesn't mean that he or she is right correct


32:25

that's the essence of all that's I think a great great final word for uh today's


32:31

recording session Thomas it's always a pleasure speaking to you you bring such a great spirits to every conversation
