SAN FRANCISCO and ATLANTA, Jan. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Global Genomics Group (“G3”), a precision-medicine-based biopharmaceutical company that leverages large-scale genomic and molecular profiling to develop life-changing diagnostics and therapeutics, and Datavant, a healthcare technology company that aggregates and structures healthcare data to generate actionable insights for clinical trial design and interpretation, today announced a strategic partnership to improve the design and interpretation of clinical trials.
Through this partnership, Datavant and G3 will work together to increase the odds of success and pace of drug development through data-driven approaches. The partners will use G3’s proprietary platform and data from the G3LOBAL database, a panomic dataset characterizing disease networks and biomarkers in approximately 8,000 patients. The robust dataset includes whole-genome sequencing, whole-transcriptome sequencing, proteomics, lipodomics, lipoprotein proteomics, and quantitative precision imaging data. Together with Datavant’s Clinical Trial Data Cloud, a longitudinal combination of real-world evidence and clinical trial data, and advanced analytics, the partners expect to create new models for developing trial enrollment criteria, endpoints, and contextualizing trial results.
“We are delighted to work with Datavant to improve pharmaceutical clinical trial design and interpretation. The traditional model of drug development and clinical trial programs is no longer sustainable, and we believe that the combination of biological Big Data, together with sophisticated analytical tools, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, are essential to turning around the pharmaceutical industry and drug development. We see Datavant at a very important intersection of cutting-edge analytical sciences and life sciences and we are looking forward to working together,” said Szilard Voros, Founder and CEO of G3.
“The key to success for a clinical trial often rests in identifying the right patients to enroll or in identifying biomarkers for efficacy/safety as early as possible in development. To that end, we’re excited to partner with G3 and gain access to both their deep domain expertise and robust panomic datasets to support the development strategies of our biopharmaceutical clients,” said Travis May, President and Co-Founder of Datavant.
G3 is the leading precision-medicine-based biopharmaceutical company, developing genetically validated drug targets and novel biomarkers based on biological Big Data, using novel artificial intelligence and machine-learning algorithms and traditional systems-biology-driven bioinformatics approaches to unravel new biologies of common, chronic diseases and rare diseases. G3 combines precision phenotyping with pan-omics (genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, lipidomics and lipoprotein proteomics) and systems-biology driven bioinformatics to investigate the development and progression of common chronic diseases, as well as rare and orphan diseases.
