Science should be used for

the benefit of all people


At Thirona we go far beyond building algorithms that improve clinical workflow efficiency for the most common pathologies. We use AI technology to also tackle rare diseases and complex conditions. We apply AI to capture the knowledge that helps speed up scientific progress in healthcare. We believe that only by collaborating with partners across the value chain we can make science reach the clinics faster and achieve a truly sustainable impact.
