Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Licenses Epistemic AI Research Intelligence Platform

WESTPORT, CONN.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Epistemic AI (EAI) is pleased to announce that the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) has licensed its Research Intelligence platform. With support from the Boomer Esiason Foundation (BEF), the EAI platform will help researchers at CSHL to rapidly access documents and data that provide insight into the underlying relationships among diseases, their diagnosis, treatments, and biological functions. The BEF venture philanthropy model was an instrumental component to bring this enhanced capability to CSHL.

Home to eight Nobel Prize winners, CSHL employs nearly 600 scientists, students and technicians, who will immediately benefit from access to the EAI platform. CSHL also regularly welcomes thousands of visiting scientists from around the world to their Meeting & Courses Programs, many of whom were recently introduced to the EAI platform with considerable success.

As a leading international research institution, with multidisciplinary labs that contribute widely to scientific breakthroughs, CSHL will use the EAI platform to help accelerate research by reducing the time it takes to access multiple sources of information and data, enabling the effortless exploration of biomedical knowledge.

The current partnership between BEF and Epistemic AI began in 2020 and is an on-going effort to improve access to information using AI. The partnership enables EAI to collaborate with foundations, companies, and hospitals to foster a consortium of knowledge discovery that will help advance and expedite CF-related discoveries.

Stefano Pacifico, CEO, and co-founder of Epistemic AI, commented that “working with BEF has been an amazing experience. We expect that our partnership with the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory will prove to be enormously beneficial to cystic fibrosis research, while simultaneously providing CSHL researchers with actionable insights in cancer, genomics and neuroscience.”
