CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- GNS Healthcare, an AI-driven precision medicine company, is pleased to announce the formation of its in silico Patient Advisory Board. The in silico patient is an AI-driven computer model of disease progression and drug response at the individual patient level, built from large quantities of multi-modal patient data. Accurate enough to serve as a companion technology platform in the design of clinical trials and generation of real-world evidence, the in silico patient accelerates the clinical development of new drugs and impacts the market positioning of newly launched medicines.
The Advisory Board will guide the strategy and commercialization of this transformative innovation that will enable the precision matching of drugs to patients. The first in silico patient in the pipeline will launch mid-2020.
The members of GNS Healthcare's Advisory Board are:
Michael Bonney – Executive Chairman of Kaleido Biosciences and board member of BMS and Alnylam, former CEO of Cubist
Tom Daniel - Venture Partner at ARCH, former President of R&D at Celgene
Peter Neupert - Lead Director at Adaptive and LabCorp, former Corporate Vice President at Microsoft and Founder/CEO of drugstore.com
Lee Newcomer - former Senior Vice President, Oncology and Genetics, and Chief Medical Officer at UnitedHealth Group
"We are thrilled to have these pioneers across several key industries lend their insights to the commercialization of these in silico patients. Tom and Michael bring the R&D and commercial perspective, respectively, from pharma while Lee represents the payer side and Peter delivers the technology and health technology perspective," said Colin Hill, Chairman, Co-founder and CEO of GNS Healthcare. "Bringing together these individuals is a testament to where we are in pharmaceutical and healthcare innovation—at the intersection of "big patient data", AI, and an increasingly profound need to deliver personalized treatment to patients. We are moving closer to revealing the underlying biology of human disease and are excited to share our solutions with the market in 2020."
