New collective intelligence network to enable the most advanced research in oncology in support of precision medicine

BOSTON and ROLLE, Switzerland, May 30, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — SOPHiA GENETICS (Nasdaq: SOPH), a cloud-native healthcare technology company and a global leader in data-driven medicine, today announced SOPHiA UNITY, a new data-driven consortium designed to accelerate cancer research globally. SOPHiA UNITY aims to bring together leading healthcare institutions to progress a shared goal of furthering cancer research, advancing drug development and supporting data-driven patient care.

To advance the adoption of precision oncology, it is crucial to have access to large-scale data from a wide range of modalities (such as imaging, genomics, pathology and clinical notes), and diverse set of patient profiles. Currently, no single institution globally collects the necessary volume and diversity of information to propel the healthcare field forward. SOPHiA GENETICS has launched SOPHiA UNITY to answer that need and meet the demand for high-quality, diverse data at scale, aiming to drive a new era of precision oncology research.

The collective intelligence network will advance research initiatives using SOPHiA CarePath, the multimodal module on the SOPHiA DDM Platform, to aggregate and analyze complex real-world data. This data will be harmonized and curated using SOPHiA GENETICS’ advanced AI-based technology and proprietary algorithms. Through SOPHiA GENETICS’ unique platform and CarePath offering, SOPHiA UNITY members will have access to meaningful, data-driven insights that will support decision-making and expedite oncology research.

“At SOPHiA GENETICS, we have mastered the challenge of harmonizing and connecting genomic data and have the capabilities to do the same with other modalities through our CarePath module,” said Jurgi Camblong, PhD., Co-founder and CEO of SOPHiA GENETICS. “SOPHiA UNITY will usher in the next era of precision medicine innovation by bringing together best-in-class institutions that are committed to the advancement of oncology research and the use of data-driven medicine. We are extremely optimistic about the insights this collective intelligence network will generate to further our shared goal.”

SOPHiA GENETICS announced that the first member to join SOPHiA UNITY is Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, a top cancer treatment and research institution and world leader in patient care, research, and educational programs. Additional members will be announced in the coming months.

“I am looking forward to participating in the new data-driven consortium and partnering with other institutions to draw deeper insights from our collective data,” said Mrinal Gounder, M.D., Sarcoma Oncologist & Early Drug Development Specialist and Physician Ambassador to India and Asia, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

Leading academic cancer centers who are looking to connect with like-minded researchers globally are eligible to join the SOPHiA UNITY collective intelligence network and gather insights that can be implemented locally. For more information, visit SOPHiAGENETICS.COM, or connect on LinkedIn
