Onco AI‑Med is an alliance of leading hospitals in the field of oncology from all over the world. Our shared goal is to explore and unlock the huge potential of multi-omics to advance the concept of personalized cancer therapy.
The alliance was created as a collaborative network for individualized cancer research at the highest level.
We are convinced that the complexity of cancer mechanisms and individual patient variations can only be captured holistically when multiple -omics layers of information are combined.
Founding Onco AI‑Med was initiated by oncology company Indivumed, which contributes bioinformatics and data analytics capabilities to the alliance. Based on standard operating procedures for tissue and data collection developed by the company, participating network hospitals collect samples and clinical information that are analyzed in a comprehensive multi-omics approach. A discovery solution called IndivuType integrates the data with advanced AI analytics applications.
Multi-omics approaches can address many unmet clinical needs, including the development and validation of prognostic or predictive signatures. The insights gained from multi-omics analyses can also inform the identification of potential targets for new drugs, which are supported through the successive steps of drug development in collaboration with pharmaceutical or biotech companies.
Following its launch in 2019 and the start of research work, Onco AI‑Med is now beginning to publish initial results. Further publications will follow and will be continuously updated here in the coming months.

Onco AI‑Med is organized into working groups that focus on either specific tumor entities or a scientific topic, such as new methods for collecting samples while maintaining their molecular properties.
Disease-specific working groups are tasked with developing scientific questions that can be answered using the existing database. To ensure relevance and provide direction, all activities are coordinated by an Advisory Board that includes some of the brightest thought leaders in oncology today.
