Paseman Cancer BioHackathon

In Spring 2022, Praxis AI hosted a BioHackathon with Meharry Medical College to explore treatments for rare kidney cancer.

For 55+ hours, 35+ BioHackers collaborated to explore Bill Paseman’s medical challenges (kidney cancer and brain tumor) and solutioneer new, creative, exciting alternative therapeutics. Three teams explored six hypotheses and made startling discoveries.

Startup of
the Year

Praxis AI is a modern education & research company dedicated to solving many of the world’s toughest problems.

BioHackathon: BioHacking Turmeric

(January 27-29, 2023)



Curcumin actions in the body are mediated through dozens of interactions with human proteins that are associated with multiple pathways. In this three, half-day BioHackathon, we will understand and address this hypothesis via lectures and discussions of the holistic Ayurvedic medicine approach; data mining with tutorials on the Comparative Toxicogenomics Database (, PharmGKB (, and Protein Data Bank (; and collaborate with other creative people to identify how curcumin works holistically at the biochemical and genetic levels.
