Dopavision : Tim Schilling, Vision Scientist

Myopia, or shortsightedness, is a condition where the visual image is focused in front of the retina, instead of on the retina itself, as it should. People with myopia have good near sight vision but poor distance vision. Dopavision is developing a digital therapeutic for myopia which can be seamlessly and invisibly integrated with the use of a smartphone. Myopia is a visual condition that affects on average every third person globally, a share that has increased rapidly during the last two decades. It has grown to alarming proportions in Asia where prevalence rates, e.g., in Singapore, have reached 80% among young adults. High myopia imposes a significant risk to cause visual impairment and even blindness later in life.
The goal of the Berlin-based startup is to develop a clinically validated therapy for myopiaprogression in children and adolescents. The technology delivers light stimulation to specific photosensitive cells on the retina which in turn modulate dopamine, a neurotransmitter that is important for the regulation of eye growth. Founded in 2017, Dopavision GmbH is supported by the German government via the “Industrie-in-Klinik” program of the BMBF (Federal Ministry of Education and Research) with the amount of € 1.4 million over three years. Additionally, the company is backed with venture capital in a seed round to advance the research and further develop the product for clinical validation.

Our services can be either "raw data" driven (for example genome assembly or profiling of metagenomes) or "big data" driven. As an example of "big data" driven projects, we are currently working with a biotech start-up where we perform important bioinformatics analyses by analysing large amounts of publicly available data. The results of our analysis are essential for the development of the company's core product.

 


 


Bioinformatics.Expert UG: Felix Bormann, CEO

Big data becomes more important in life sciences but also more challenging. This is mostly not due to missing programmatic routines for the analysis but due to missing access, know-how and infrastructure to these resources. Found in 2018, Bioinformatics.Expert UG can offer anyone who is interested to perform bioinformatic analyses the right products for their needs as well as the necessary computational infrastructure. Those include but are not limited to RNAseq-, ATACseq-, ChipSeq-analyses, analyses of Microarray-data but also simple PCA, t-SNE or even Heatmaps. Additionally, Bioinformatics.Expert UG can offer instruments to ensure bioinformatic reproducibility throughout different analyses.

 



Nostos Genomics : David Gorgan, Co-Founder & CEO

Nostos Genomics developed a platform for AI-driven deciphering of genetic diseases. It leverages a combination of machine learning and synthetic biology to characterise the impact of genetic variants at scale and use this data to improve the diagnosis and treatment of rare genetic diseases.
