Pentavere Research Group Inc. has been awarded the first Takeda Canada Innovation Challenge. The Innovation Challenge was launched in January 2022 to accelerate partnerships in identifying new digital technologies and artificial intelligence (AI) solutions that support enhanced patient care in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) or rare disease conditions.
Pentavere Research Group Inc. is a clinical discovery company that has developed a breakthrough, proprietary, artificial intelligence (AI) engine called DARWEN™, which accelerates discovery from vast amounts of clinical text. DARWEN™ unlocks value, insights and evidence from clinical information which is impossible to analyze by human intelligence alone.
Pentavere will have the opportunity to collaborate and benefit from Takeda’s expertise and extensive international network, as well as funding, to build a proof of concept project in the areas of rare diseases.
The Takeda Canada Innovation Challenge received multiple submissions within the fields of early diagnosis or integrated and personalized care, applicable to the therapeutic areas of inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease) or rare genetic diseases.
