About Pangaea Data Limited

Pangaea Data provides a novel AI driven product, which has clinically proven to characterize patients in a federated privacy preserving and scalable manner. For example, Pangaea helped characterize cachexia in cancer patients, which led to the discovery of 6x more undiagnosed, miscoded and at risk cachectic cancer patients with 95% accuracy with the potential to save £1billion annually and improving outcomes. Additionally, US based healthcare systems have applied Pangaea to measure health inequity across the US through characterization of patients and their journeys based on tumour genomic testing results, demographics and social indicators from patient records. Clinicians at pharmaceutical companies are applying Pangaea to discover new clinically actionable insights which have helped them find new drug targets, define new end points for clinical trials, understand relationships between drugs and adverse events, find more patients for clinical trials and during the launch of new therapies. The founders (Dr. Vibhor Gupta and Prof. Yike Guo) are based between South San Francisco and London and have attracted $200 million through their research.
