About Altis LabsAltis is a clinical information company based in Toronto. Our team is on a mission to help guide personalized treatment and reduce the time and cost of bringing life-changing therapies to market. What We DoIn 2019 researchers spent $68 billion conducting cancer trials that will fail to gain regulatory approval. Trial sponsors are continually seeking ways to better understand clinical data and maximize chances of trial success. Radiological imaging plays a key role in clinical trials to gauge treatment efficacy, but data interpretation criteria are flawed and non-reproducible.Using Nota, our cloud-based software platform powered by deep learning, researchers are able to access more comprehensive imaging biomarkers. These insights help optimize clinical trial design and more accurately measure treatment effect, accelerating development of the most promising therapies.Altis’ team works closely with biopharma companies and collaborates with leading Canadian hospitals to curate rich, longitudinal clinical datasets, co-publish research findings, and expand our product portfolio across oncology, cardiology, and respiratory diseases. About the PositionAltis is recruiting an experienced web developer with an entrepreneurial and product-focused mindset.
