IQuity, Inc. is a data science company using genomic and proprietary healthcare datasets to improve chronic disease outcomes and lower the overall costs of managing these illnesses. They accomplish this by giving healthcare stakeholders information that allows them to make informed healthcare decisions early in the disease’s progression. IQuity’s technology was first used to analyze genomic data (RNA) in blood to accurately identify autoimmune diseases much earlier than is possible with current, conventional testing methodologies. Use of this technology was expanded to analyze health care data of broad populations in order to predict and monitor chronic diseases. The resulting data drives enhanced management of patients served by self-insured employers, payers and care management companies.

Protypia logo

Protypia, LLC advances the development of immuno-oncology (IO) therapeutics with quantitative, multiplexed protein analysis platforms. New IO therapeutics have dramatically improved outcomes across many cancers, but the complexity of the tumor-immune interface remains a barrier to development of successful, individualized therapies. Protypia technology defines proteotypes, which represent druggable phenotypes in solid tumors and hematologic malignancies. IO proteotypes enable systematic design and optimization of combination therapies, evaluation of disease models and design of successful clinical trials.
