From PhD project to leading Bio-IT solution provider
MediSapiens originated from CEO Sami Kilpinen’s PhD thesis, which focused on the development of bioinformatics solutions for the needs of cancer research. The data systems Kilpinen created attracted commercial interest, which resulted in the establishment of MediSapiens in 2009.
The company has grown quickly and it currently employs over 30 people from various backgrounds. The multidisciplinary staff consists of professional software developers, bioinformaticians, as well as sales and marketing personnel. MediSapiens has core competencies in the management, analysis, and visualisation of genomic, biomedical, and clinical data.
“We are developing tailored Bio-IT solutions for any life science or medical health application”, Kilpinen clarifies and continues, “in addition to expertise in software development, we possess a strong scientific background. Importantly, this combination of skills provides us the ability to add value to the implementation of customer projects, beyond what traditional IT-companies are able to offer.”
