Solving fertility with Paxton Maeder-York, CEO & Founder @ Alife Health

September 9, 2021

On this week’s show, we spoke with Paxton Maeder-York, CEO & Founder @ Alife Health. Paxton Maeder-York is a proud member of the MBA class of 2019, Section G. He deferred between his RC and EC years to complete an additional master’s degree in Computational Science. Having studied Biomedical Engineering as an undergraduate and worked as a Product Manager at Auris Health building surgical robotics to treat lung cancer, the intersection of medicine and technology was a deep interest of his prior to HBS. He is now the Founder and CEO of Alife Health, which uses machine learning to help assess the healthiest embryo to transfer during IVF.

On the show, we spoke about:

  • How he started his career in robotics
  • Tackling the huge challenge of fertility with Alife
  • The enormous potential of machine learning in healthcare
  • Potential future applications of their technology
  • Raising funding from world class investors

Paxton is incredibly smart and hard working. I won’t be surprised if we hear much more about his company in the coming years. I hope that you enjoy the conversation!
