Can Design Controls Accelerate Medical Innovation?

We are living in an unprecedented era of rapid medical innovation in the face of COVID-19. The speed of development for devices and diagnostics has been driven by the urgency of the pandemic resulting in enhanced public-private collaboration, access to funding, and a reduced regulatory burden.

While the pace of medical innovation today can be seen as an inspiring silver lining, it also highlights the lack of that speed over the past 20 years. When the dust settles and COVID-19 is behind us (and it will be behind us), I find myself asking the following questions:

  • What lessons will we have learned to keep the positive momentum going into the future?
  • What will happen when our public-private collaborations, access to funding, and regulatory pathways to commercialization resume to the status quo?
  • Will the pace of medical innovation also wind back down to the pre-COVID era?

InterVenn Biosciences raises $34 million to accelerate cancer test development with AI

InterVenn Biosciences today raised $34 million to further develop its platform for precision medicine. The New York-based startup says the funds will be used to accelerate its go-to-market, expansion, and ongoing product R&D efforts.

Mass spectrometry, a technique that measures the mass-to-charge ratio of ions, can be applied to genomics studies with implications for clinical medicine. But extensive, time-consuming analysis is usually needed to arrive at interpretable, actionable information, and it still doesn’t address the issues of accuracy and reproducibility.

InterVenn was founded in 2017 by former Veem CTO Aldo Carrascoso; Stanford chemistry professor Carolyn Bertozzi; University of California, Berkeley biochemistry professor Carlito Lebrilla; and former Stemcentrx mass spectrometry head Lieza Marie Danan. The company claims its AI-imbued product automates the discovery of biomarkers (indicators of the severity of some diseases) and even the design of certain clinical trials. InterVenn combines hardware, wetware, and software to develop project-specific workflows that

IBM and AMD Partner Up to Accelerate Development in Cloud Computing and Artificial Intelligence

International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM) and Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) today announced a multiyear agreement to bolster security and artificial intelligence (AI). Under terms of the deal, the two tech giants will collaborate on advancing confidential computing in hybrid cloud environments.

Both companies will utilize open-source software, open standards, and open system architectures across the process. AMD and IBM expect this to expand encryption and virtualization in high-performance computing.

The agreement also addresses one crucial challenge. The security industry has become adept at protecting data while it is at rest or even in transit. Still, data must often be available in an unencrypted form while in use. This presents a security challenge that makes some companies hesitant about the cloud.

But confidential computing offers a potential solution to keep data encrypted while workloads run. If AMD and IBM can address this issue, they believe they can remove
