We identify curative treatments for complex diseases (like Parkinson’s) using state-of-the-art computational methods.
Fast-growing interdisciplinary team of biologists, engineers and ML experts
Steady contributions to top-tier research publication outlets
Partnerships with world leaders in neuroscience and Machine Learning- Michael J. Fox Foundation, MIT Media Lab, Stanford NLP group, Synthetic Neurobiology Group at the MIT media lab, Parkinson's Institute and Clinical Center, Nicole Shanahan/ Sergey Brin Family Foundation
Our engineering team at the moment consists of two engineers and a contractor at the moment. Our biologists occasionally play
data scientist as well to help train some of our NLP classifiers. We use GitHub flow, and review PRs on GitHub.
Applications where it makes sense to have a one-step build and deploy all do or someone is working on updating that infrastructure. We pay tech debt as soon as we have the time, which has been early and often.
We're identifying how best to build a computational model of complex diseases, the first of which is Parkinson's disease.
Create new/improve performance of NLP relation classifiers. Requires understanding of machine learning and state-of-the art NLP techniques, and a cursory understanding of downstream tasks (e.g. a graphical knowledge base).
Build infrastrucutre to scale deployment and training of our models
Build out our current Grant Proposal characterization tool (client search tool), that helps the Michael J. Fox Foundation identify promising areas of research to fund.
Academic, collaborative and interdisciplinary. We have bi-weekly presentations in which anyone can present on a topic or a study in the domains of biology, machine learning, or computer science. We've submitted papers to top journals, collaborated with top-tier research teams, and innovate often.
