"NextBio Clinical platform uses a big data technology approach to solve exactly these types of perplexing problems that doctors and researchers have spent years trying to address," said Alpana Verma-Alag , M.D., Head of Clinical Development at NextBio. "This study will look at clinical and genomic data from real patients, as well as data from mouse models and frozen human tissue samples, and then will correlate these data sets with other data from the public domain.
