Dr. Lachmi co-founded Bioz to accelerate scientific research and drug discovery. The Bioz cloud platform is the world's first search engine built for life science experimentation. The technology utilizes a patent-pending software architecture that taps the latest advances in Artificial Intelligence - including Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning -- to mine and structure hundreds of millions of pages of complex and unstructured scientific papers. This places an unprecedented amount of summarized scientific experimentation knowledge at researchers' fingertips, ultimately speeding up drug discovery and scientific research toward finding cures for diseases, ranging from cancer to diabetes and more.
"I'm honored by this recognition and am delighted by the validation of our contributions in shaping the R&D landscape," says Dr. Karin Lachmi. "Since Bioz' inception, we've been passionate about enabling life science researchers to make faster and smarter experimentation decisions and speed up drug discovery.
