IT revolution in Life Sciences: startups, innovations, technologies and trends

in fb g+ tw rss



Digital revolution happened in 1950-1970 and it changed the way people live and communicate forever. The healthcare industry is not an exception and it has been largely transformed by the emergence of new software tools, communication and collaboration platforms, process automation tools, data analytics technologies and sophisticated database management and IT infrastructure models.

But healthcare industry is on the verge of a new digital transformation again -- this time it relates to big data analytics, cloud technologies, and machine learning. Accompanied by a skyrocketing progress in biological sciences — genomics, cell technologies, gene editing, new biologics drugs, as well as unprecedented access to a huge drug-like chemical space (hundreds of millions of compounds, and even billions — with DNA-encoded libraries, for example) — we are about to create the future where things like Precision Medicine can become possible on a global scale.

Imagine that people could get personalized drugs or therapy treatments, which are specifically designed for each particular patient, taking into account their genetics, medical history, and an overall lifestyle. Diminished side effects, high efficiency — access to healthy living.
