SPONSORS


GOLD:

IBM's Technical Computing organization
IBM's OpenPOWER Group
is the organization that includes high performance computing (HPC) within the IBM Systems Group. This group is responsible for the strategy, marketing and identification of areas that can benefit from IBM's high end technology. The life sciences is such an area, and IBM is and will continue to bring valued solutions to life sciences.

IBM's Research is a partner with IBM's HPC and OpenPOWER on developing the next generation of high performance  data centric computers. In addition, the Research Division has many groups investigating numerous application areas in collaboration with IBM's customers and partners in the life sciences. This includes IBM Research’s Data Centric Solutions and Computational Biology Center.

PatientsLikeMe is a free website where people with chronic health conditions get together and share their experiences living with disease. Where newly diagnosed patients can improve their outcomes by connecting with and learning from others who've gone before them. Where researchers learn more about what's working, what's not, and where the gaps are, so that they can develop new and better treatments.

SomaLogic
SomaLogic® was founded in 2000 by Larry Gold, with the goal of improving the well-being and quality of life of every individual by transforming how diseases were detected and diagnosed. Building on the previous decade of aptamer research, SomaLogic scientists have developed a new proteomics technology that overcomes the significant challenges of current technologies, and which has multiple applications across the biological and medical sciences. Our mission is to leverage our proprietary technology to discover, develop and commercialize revolutionary new life science research tools and breakthrough clinical diagnostic products that will transform healthcare. - See more at: www.somalogic.com/About-Us.aspx#sthash.Fj3ONBCS.dpuf


SILVER:

Biodesix®
Biodesix®
is a fully-integrated molecular diagnostics company with multi-omic (DNA, RNA, Protein) test development capabilities leading to robust, clinically validated, blood-based tests for oncology. Our design and development teams use a specific machine learning approach to develop tests for researchers, bio-pharma partners, and clinicians. Recent clinical data show that the Biodesix test development approach, which utilizes the circulating proteome, provides unique and important information on the efficacy of immunotherapies and targeted agents. On market GeneStrat® and VeriStrat® tests are performed in a CAP/CLIA/CLEP certified laboratory with results in 72 hours for patients with non-small cell lung cancer.
