About SimBioSys

One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, requiring some combination of chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery. Half of all second opinions sought out by patients will differ radically from the first. This is not the fault of the clinicians; rather, limitations in current diagnostics often result in ineffective, inaccurate prognoses.

 

SimBioSys is developing technology to explore the economy of tumor microenvironments (aka a TumorScope). Integrating the gamut of health data available for a patient, the novel capabilities within the TumorScope not only provide predictions for treatment outcomes, but also provide the reason for why a treatment will succeed or fail. As an initial target, SimBioSys is calibrating the TumorScope for the war on breast cancer.

 

Empowered with an understanding of how a patient’s tumor responds to different therapies with quantitative measures of the likelihood of success, we believe doctors can de-risk their decision making, standardize their treatment approach, and provide confidence and certainty to their patients.

 

SimBioSys, Inc. is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment.
