Singapore Startup Proteona selected as a Falling Walls Breakthrough of the Year Finalist, Science Start-Up
Innovative AI-driven genomic and proteomic analysis platform for improving cell therapy and immuno-oncology
Proteona is proud to be selected as a Science Start-Up Breakthrough of the Year finalist in the Falling Walls Remote 2020. It is the first time that this prestigious event is hosted online (for free), so do join us from 1-10 November to catch our video presentation and to attend the exciting line up of events.
In the video, we will explain why Proteona embarked on the mission of breaking the wall of cancer, and how we are going to do that. We will talk about
- The current challenges in targeted cancer therapy and precision medicine
- Why tumor heterogeneity or diversity makes cancer so difficult to treat
- How we tackle the problem by combining single cell multi-omics and artificial intelligence-assisted analysis
- What we are doing now to help multiple myeloma patients
- Our plan to break the wall of cancer, one cell at a time
