Startup Atomwise uses artificial intelligence to find treatments for diseases more efficiently than conventional methods used in medicine. The startup created by computer science alumni Abraham Heifts (CEO), Izhar Wallach (CTO), Misko Dzamba (Senior Software Engineer) and U of T Political Science grad, Alexander Levy (COO).
Atomwise recently made news this past March for identifying medications that could reduce spread of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. In medicine, identifying the right treatments for diseases normally takes years, it but took Atomwise only four months.
