Helix Bioscience Institute (HBI)


Published on

The Helix Bioscience Institute (HBI) was envisioned as a novel not-for-profit translational science endeavor, focused on better bridging the gap between research bench and patient bedside. HBI’s mission will be to drive multidisciplinary innovation at the convergence of discovery and pre-clinical through the synergistic application of biology, engineering, and computation to address unmet health care need.

Through leveraging advances in data mining, computation/data modeling, real-time laboratory outsourcing, and a team of multidisciplinary dreamers and doers, we will work to bring about a paradigm shift in translational science leading to an acceleration of therapeutics development.You can learn more at the link below and lend your support to what I hope will be a truly transformative and positive undertaking:
