Headquartered outside London in the UK but operating globally, our staff is distributed around the world. We are united in our dedication to developing a person-centric approach to healthcare that differs from the current population-based paradigm.
The team exploits its research experience carried out at top-ranked institutions at the forefront of AI and medicine, including Oxford, Cambridge, and the Karolinska Institute. OIA’s founders have published more than 200 papers in all the top-ranked journals in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, computational medicine, and systems immunology.
Our cross-disciplinary team consists of AI experts, medical leaders, and pioneers in IoT and engineering working at the forefront of science and technology. With our multidisciplinary approach, we are able to tackle some of the most pressing human health challenges, such as infection, cancer, antibiotic resistance, and tropical diseases from a technological and commercial-viability point of view.
We proudly embrace diversity, inclusion, and equality, which are among our core values.
