“When founding SOPHiA GENETICS, our goal was to create a tech company whose impact would significantly improve patients’ care,” said Jurgi Camblong, CEO and Co-Founder of SOPHiA GENETICS. “Our clients see the value of our collaborative, decentralized platform that breaks down data silos to provide equal access to knowledge and capabilities for the advancement of data driven medicine across the globe.”
Founded in 2011, SOPHiA GENETICS set out to create a world where every clinician has a multidimensional understanding of diseases by integrating data and sharing insights for the benefit of patients across the globe. What began as a research tool for hospitals and research labs, has since evolved into the SOPHiA DDM™ Platform of today – a collaborative community of thousands of healthcare specialists. Since launch, the platform has grown exponentially, increasing analysis volume at a compound annual growth rate of over 50% since 2016. SOPHiA GENETICS has analyzed more than 1.2 million genomic profiles to date.
Powered by AI and machine learning, the cloud-based SOPHiA DDM™ Platform was designed to scale, enabling the company to compute more data, support additional data modalities, expand to new geographies, and deploy new applications including added capabilities to longitudinally follow patient’s data while being treated for cancer. Since its inception in genomics, the SOPHiA DDM™ Platform has evolved to include the analysis of clinical, biological, genomic, and radiomic data to support the numerous ongoing multimodal studies supported by SOPHiA GENETICS. The company partners with leading global brands in research and medicine.
