Cambridge, MA (March 17, 2022) - Prism Analytic Technologies, an AI-powered knowledge management platform for Pharma, has become a member of the Pistoia Alliance.

Prism’s membership comes as a natural extension of the company’s work helping pharma-industry clients transform, visualize and maximize the value of unstructured data from multiple sources.  Prism’s co-founder and CEO, Brendan Guerin commented:

We are excited to announce our membership with the Pistoia Alliance. The team is looking forward to working alongside our life science colleagues, sharing expertise and making a meaningful contribution to Pistoia’s goal of lowering barriers to life science innovation.

The Pistoia Alliance is a global, not-for-profit members’ organization made up of life science companies, technology, and service providers, publishers, and academic groups working to lower barriers to innovation in life science and healthcare R&D. It was conceived in 2007 and incorporated in 2009 by representatives of AstraZeneca, GSK, Novartis, and Pfizer who met at a conference in Pistoia, Italy. Its projects transform R&D through pre-competitive collaboration. It overcomes common R&D obstacles by identifying the root causes, developing standards and best practices, sharing pre-competitive data and knowledge, and implementing technology pilots. There are currently over 150 member companies; members collaborate on projects that generate significant value for the worldwide life sciences R&D community, using The Pistoia Alliance’s proven framework for open innovation.

In support of Pistoia’s pre-competitive collaboration, Prism brings expertise in software engineering and development, data science, user experience, data visualization and clinical trial meta-data. On April 6th, Mr. Guerin will deliver a brief virtual address introducing Prism at the Pistoia Alliance’s Annual European Conference: Driving Patient Centricity in R&D, hosted at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel in London.

“We are very pleased to welcome Prism into The Pistoia Alliance and look forward to working with them to achieve our goal of lowering barriers to innovation in the life science industry. The world of life sciences R&D continues to change rapidly – and sharing, partnering and collaborating will be essential to increased innovation. As our membership continues to grow, our projects and initiatives will be vital in fostering this collaborative mind-set and leading to new breakthroughs,” commented Dr Errol Sandler, Interim President and Secretary of The Pistoia Alliance.
