Mr. Vonz Santos, the owner of biotech company, Amylex, introduces an innovation in the search for the cure to Alzheimer’s disease. He explains the process of intervening in the pathological process of beta Amyloids in the body to prevent them from becoming deadly.
Vonz is concurrently the CEO of Amylex, a Philippine biotech company which, among others, focuses on the development of molecular technology and medical treatment of Alzheimer’s and diabetes diseases. One of his visions is for the Philippines to become a great platform country for the research of molecular technology/treatment throughout Asia and the rest of the world. Among his company’s greatest contributions has been the creation and distribution of the folding Butterfly House, which is a portable emergency shelter funded by USAID. It has been distributed to hundreds of families in Tacloban who were displaced by the 2012 Typhoon Yolanda. It is also being disseminated to refugees in Marawi City, Mindanao badly affected by this year’s Maute terrorist siege. Due to the durability and practicality of the Butterfly House, it is now being used by such international entities as the United Nations. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
