Big Data and Medicine: Who is working on it?

I previously posted about Data Science and Doctor Visits. What I would like to know.

Who is working on data science problems for medicine?

I would love to hear some answers to this. They can be individual researchers, startups, or established companies. If I get some responses, I will be sure to post a list on the blog.

  1. Depends a bit on what you mean by “medicine” …

    SolveBio appears to take a data science kind of approach to cancer research (http://techcrunch.com/2012/03/29/cloud-will-cure-cancer/)

    nuMedii (http://numedii.com/) uses a data driven approach to find new indications for existing medicines.

    Then there is a host of “genomic medicine” companies that will all have to be proficient at large scale data management and processing, statistics, data mining etc, see my blog post at http://followthedata.wordpress.com/2012/05/12/new-big-dna-data-cloud-and-genome-interpretation-companies/

    These may not be what people usually regard as “medicine” but I think they are.

    1. Francesco,
      Thanks for the information. I have heard of Ginger.io before, but I am not familiar with Parkinsons Voice. I might call the phone number today and take the survey.

      Ryan
