About Elucidata :
Our mission is to make a data-driven understanding of the disease, the default starting point in the drug discovery process. Our products & services further the understanding of the ways in which diseased cells are different from healthy ones. This understanding helps scientists discover new drugs in a more effective manner and complements the move towards personalization.
Biological big data will outpace data generated by YouTube and Twitter by 10x in the next 7 yrs.
Our platform Polly will enable scientists to process different kinds of biological data and generate insights from them to accelerate drug discovery. Polly is already being used at premier biopharma companies like Pfizer and Agios; and academic labs at Yale, MIT, Washington University.
We are looking for teammates who think out-of-the-box and are not satisfied with quick fixes or canned solutions to our industry’s most challenging problems.
