Molecular diagnosis makes it possible to understand the origin of a disease. Combined with digital technology, it would allow “within 10 years of controlling cancer, using collective intelligence», Says Jurgi Camblong, founder of Sophia Genetics, a platform which, from DNA sequencing, centralizes the data necessary for the hospitals which carry out these tests.
While other start-ups, such as GenePred, focus on sequencing the genes specific to each individual, Sophia Genetics wants to bring hospitals to the age of Big Data. It provides them with a platform “community in Saas on which hospitals pay only according to their needs“. At a time of public disengagement and cost hunting, hospitals can find their way around: “there is thus no investment to make», Assures Jurgi Camblong.
In Europe, the Swiss-based company has already convinced 180 hospitals, including 20 in France.
The start-up has already carried out 4 fundraising events with the Belgian investor and entrepreneur Marc Coucke (Omega Pharma).
