Description of the project / start-up
Status of the project / start-up:
Project is finished / start-up is founded
aiNET is an ETH spin-off that supports the discovery of antibodies from billions of sequences and transforms precision diagnostics across diseases by using personalized immunity.
Why does her project / start-up promote digitalisation?
aiNET uses digital large-scale networks and artificial intelligence to identify antibodies specific to antigens and detect biomarkers of disease. It helps doctors by promoting clinical decision support through digital applications. It allows the patient to be benchmarked for health versus self rather than an average.
The DFLA and the motto "Be bold, be brave, be you" stand for new ideas and the courage to be the first. Where is the nominee first and a pioneer for others or just brave enough to be herself?
I was a dean of master of medical informatics, a full professor of digital life sciences and founder of aiNET at the same time very early on my career. I was the first among colleagues to do all three successfully, and become meanwhile a first time mother. When I look back, I ask myself how it was possible. I would love to give hope by example.
