About us
 
Owkin was co-founded in 2016 by Thomas Clozel, MD, a clinical research doctor and former assistant professor in clinical hematology, and by Gilles Wainrib, PhD, an academic pioneer in the field of Artificial Intelligence in biology. The company was built on the belief that medical research should be collaborative, inclusive, and privacy-preserving. Today, Owkin is building a global research network — using federated learning — connecting data scientists, clinicians, researchers, and pharma on a research platform that keeps the data secure and preserves privacy. Owkin’s work has been published in Nature Medicine and other top-tier journals. Owkin has raised over $74M from leading VC funds and is now working with the largest cancer centers and pharmaceutical companies in Europe and in the US.
 
Our data scientists are among the best in the world, with several Kaggle Masters, DREAM Challenge top performers, and publications in Nature, ICML, NIPS and other top scientific journals. Owkin is backed by renowned investors — such as F-Prime Capital & Eight Roads Ventures, GV, BPI, Cathay Innovation, Frst, NJF Capital and Mubadala Capital — as well as a distinguished scientific board. To build this vision, Owkin is growing rapidly, with offices located in the USA, France, UK and Switzerland.
