CAMBRIDGE, MA., February 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Via Scientific, Inc.new Cambridge a technology and artificial intelligence-based company, is proud to announce the launch of Foundry, a multi-omics accelerator platform focused on significantly shortening the path to scientific breakthroughs.
Through Scientific, Inc., a new analytics company based in Cambridge, is launching an innovative Multi-Omics analytics platform.
The Foundry platform was originally developed at UMass Chan Medical School; Via Scientific has exclusive commercial rights to the Platform. They are the founders of the company Melissa J. MoorePhD Chief Scientist Emeritus at Moderna, Alper Kucukural, PhD Co-Director of the Bioinformatics Core at UMass Chan Medical School and CTO of Via Scientific, Manuel GarberPhD, co-director of the Bioinformatics Core at UMass Chan School of Medicine, Jim Crowleylocal tech and AI entrepreneur and Janet Koslofffounder of healthcare analytics company InCrowd, Inc.
Foundry automates the complex data and analytical work associated with multi-omics research. Featuring a powerful drag-and-drop pipeline and metadata building functionality that eliminates the need to write code, plus full process orchestration and adaptive analytics, Foundry is a force multiplier for biomedical researchers. The platform also ensures that all data and analytics are shareable, reusable and reproducible. This frees up time and resources for both researchers and bioinformaticians to concentrate on generating basic science insights and therapeutic breakthroughs.
“We are excited to introduce Foundry to the market,” said Melissa Moore. “As both an academic and CSO at Moderna, I saw firsthand the need for a powerful and adaptable tool like Foundry. Scientists are constantly challenged to maintain our ability to ask questions and imagine possibilities. Foundry transforms ‘process time’ into ‘science’ time, so research teams can focus on unlocking the underlying science that leads to new insights and discoveries.”
“Multiomics analysis is insanely difficult, and we’ve made it our mission to simplify this vital research area,” he added Jim Crowley, CEO of Via Scientific. “Scientists shouldn’t have to spend their time wrangling data, writing code, and coordinating development tasks just to get to the point where they can start asking their questions.” The foundry changes all that, as scientists will now spend their time where it’s meant to be – exploring experimental results, shaping insights and advancing understanding.”
Via Scientific is focused on supporting the analytical needs of biotech, pharmaceutical, research institutes and academic universities, as well as further developing the Foundry platform and expanding its AI capabilities.
