Silicon Valley runs on two things: obscene amounts of cash and the tales people tell about who they are.

What was once a fringe science is rapidly becoming one of the Valley's hottest investments, thanks to high profile endeavors like Alphabet's $1.5 billion bet on Calico and Bezos and Thiel-backed Unity Biotechnology. Most of the excitement around these ventures rests in the drugs they're developing--pills to prevent damaged proteins and treatments to flush out toxic cells.
