Physiomics plc (AIM: PYC), a provider of technology-based solutions to predict the effects of cancer treatment regimens for the biopharma industry, yesterday participated in the “SME Dragon’s Den” event jointly organised by the National Institute for Health Research (“NIHR”) Biomedical Research Centre at The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, the Institute of Cancer Research and DigitalHealth London Accelerator.
Dr Claire Villette and Dr Jim Millen presented for 5 minutes and were then grilled by a panel of over 15 UK-based experts in the field of oncology as well as by patient representatives. The presentation was well-received and the questioning lively and informative. There were no formal “winners” at this event and the prize was not cash but rather contact and engagement with some of the country’s leading oncology clinicians and researchers. Physiomics will follow up with key participants with a view to garnering feedback, forming partnerships and accessing further data for the purposes of developing and validating its personalised oncology tools.
