Bio Hacking Research
In 2017 Crowther had an NFC tag injected into his left hand and founded Medico Tag, a medical technology research startup. Medico Tag aims to utilise NFC and Blockchain technology to create a patient owned medical records system that can be used to link emergency responders and care providers.
Concept of Bio Equity
In late 2018 Crowther first coined the term Bio Equity to encapsulate the idea of legal ownership of all aspects of the biological self. This includes the ability to transfer ownership after death, as an extension of both property and inheritance laws. He is working with an advisory of three lawyers to clarify the legal position and publish a paper for review.
Quantified Self Research
In Q1 2019 Crowther set up a 'skunkworks' project aimed at collecting, analysing and presenting 55 data points from individuals relating to themselves and their daily lives. This is being used to develop a Bio Equity analysis application.
