About Cain


My name is Cain McClary, and I am a health and science enthusiast. Specifically, I am a physician-scientist turned enterpriser who is enthusiastic about the cambrian revolution, brought about by our advances in information technology and the Internet of Things (IoT), happening in the life sciences and healthcare. I function both within the health system (as a pathologist) and externally (as a consultant and investor). The ability to understand the hospital, diagnostics, and research sciences systems from a functional perspective, with real-world insights, provides "translational" knowledge to inform both investment diligence and strategic consultation. 


Now for a little bit of my story. I pursued my undergraduate degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Brown University, graduating in 2007. The next stop was an MD from Tulane University in New Orleans. During my time in medical school, I pursued numerous basic science projects, specifically within the realm of non-coding RNA (the genome's "dark matter"). I have spent time at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, and the National Institutes of Health/National Cancer Institute through the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Most recently, I completed a residency in Anatomic Pathology at Stanford University, where I am now on faculty as a Consulting Assitant Professor. I am also a Staff Physician at the digital health company Grand Rounds
