Wipro, Pandorum partner to accelerate regenerative medicine with AI

Wipro, a leading global information technology, consulting, and business process services company, and Pandorum Technologies, a biotechnology company working in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, announced a long-term partnership. Together, the companies will focus on the development of technologies that shorten time-to-market and maximise patient outcome during research and development and clinical trials of regenerative medicine. The partnership combines the Artificial Intelligence capabilities of Wipro Holmes with Pandorum’s expertise in regenerative medicine.

The initial focus of collaboration will be on ‘bio-engineered liquid cornea’ and will expand across the product pipeline including lung and liver regenerative tissues.

Wipro Holmes Artificial Intelligence-based decision support solution will provide insights on the potential outcomes of specific formulations, apply advanced algorithms to predict and improve the efficacy of therapeutics, and help in clinical study design.

The combined vision of Pandorum and Wipro is to build an Artificial Intelligence system that learns from the multi-dimensional data coming out of Pandorum’s research and development pipeline at the cellular, tissue and organ levels, and provides actionable insights.

“By embracing digital technologies such as artificial intelligence, life sciences organisations can accelerate innovation, transform business processes and fuel growth. In life sciences research and development, Artificial Intelligence is particularly valuable to rapidly discover new formulations, expedite therapeutic development and bring life-saving therapies to market faster, thereby positively influencing human health. With our domain and Artificial Intelligence expertise, we stand ready to enable our health and life sciences clients to serve their stakeholders better,” said Rajan Kohli, President and Managing Partner, iDEAS, Wipro.

“We’re living in a time of unprecedented progress in biology, data science and machine learning. We are building a framework to converge these three fields, in order to harness the potential of tissue reprogramming to the fullest and address global unmet clinical needs, such as, corneal blindness, Liver diseases. In the end, what matters most is to be able to alleviate the suffering of the patients. Together with Wipro, we hope to accelerate this process”, said Tuhin Bhowmick, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Pandorum.

“Regenerative medicine is an alternative option for many patients awaiting donors for transplant. We are excited to bring Wipro Holmes advanced Artificial Intelligence capabilities to Pandorum, which will accelerate the development of successful regenerative therapeutics and enable better outcomes for the patients. Our focus on developing explainable Artificial Intelligence and built-in capabilities for data privacy makes Wipro Holmes the most suitable for life sciences research and development and clinical trials,” said Harmeet Chauhan, Global Head – Engineering and Research and Development, Wipro Limited.
