Cooperation for the Establishment of the Precision Medicine Research Platform at SNUBH Biomedical Research Institute
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Seoul National University (SNU) Bundang Hospital Biomedical Research Institute announced that it concluded the MOU on November 15, 2022, to standardize clinico genomic research using Cipherome, Inc.’s precision medicine research platform at Precision Medicine Center.
Precision Medicine Center, an integral part of the Future Innovation Research Department of Seoul National University Bundang Hospital in supporting medical staffs with genomics education programs and research support programs, is currently establishing large-scale cohorts based on the hospital’s human biobank.
At the signing ceremony on November 15th, Ji-Soo Kim (President & Chief Research Officer of the Biomedical Research Institute of Seoul National University Bundang Hospital), Jee Hyun Kim (Head of the Future Innovation Research Department), Jung Hun Ohn (Director of the Precision Medicine Center), Jinho Kim and Sejoon Lee (professors at the Precision Medicine Center), Ilsong Lee (CEO of Cipherome), Min Kim (CTO of Cipherome), and others commented on the future direction of personalized medicine using clinic genomic factors.
Because of the high need for tools to organize, vet, and perform genomic and clinical data research and the lack of accessible tools for clinical researchers, Cipherome has commercialized its data analysis development system, the Compass Platform, to empower clinical researchers to carry out complex data science tasks --from statistical analysis to machine learning training-- on genomic and clinical data efficiently and rapidly. A primary goal is to shorten the time to results of population-scale extrapolations using UK BioBank data.
Ji-Soo Kim, the president of Seoul National University Bundang Hospital Biomedical Research Institute, stated: “Through this MOU with Cipherome, we will actively support the precision medicine R&D based on clinical and genomic big data. We will continue to strengthen our research capability to take the lead of the precision medicine in the global market.”
Ilsong Lee, the CEO of Cipherome also said: “Our cooperation with Seoul National University Bundang Hospital Biomedical Research Institute is central to achieving impact and adoption of clinico genomics since the Institute plays a key role in the advancement of the medical industry through its R&D on highly advanced, innovative medical technology. We hope that this MOU will contribute to improving the precision medicine research competitiveness and capability of Seoul National University Bundang Hospital.”
