Since the first sequencing of the human genome in 2003, the cost of sequencing has dramatically decreased, leading to an unprecedented amount of genomic data. Within this data lies untapped therapeutic potential that can improve our understanding of human disease.Lifebit’s Platform and consulting solutions are making this data securely accessible and usable for life-saving research. Lifebit partners with private and public sectors to empower them to achieve their research goals.
“A challenge facing the precision medicine field lies in data governance.
It is critical to keep this sensitive health data safe. With strict national regulatory frameworks, there’s a real pressing need to leave data at rest and also to analyse it alongside international datasets and integrate it through federated links. Multi-party federation technology addresses this issue – keeping patients' data secure and privacy protected in our datasets, while enabling researchers from academia and pharma to analyse this data collaboratively in conjunction with their other complementary datasets. That’s a very powerful value proposition.”
