Physician-scientists have changed the history of medicine by identifying problems in the clinic and taking to the laboratory to solve them.
The founder of our company, Dr. Ayass, is revolutionizing the way medicine is practiced by combining clinical care with research to find an innovative way to understand the underlying disease pathways, thereby providing better patient care.
Dr. Ayass is a strong believer in practicing precision medicine and has been setting an example for combining science and medical practice for many years.
Medical doctors who are competent at both laboratory research and the clinical practice are crucial to not only improving patients’ lives, but also the health care industry as a whole.
For over a decade, Dr. Lowy studied the family of infection agents to which HPV belongs. Because of the vaccine he developed to prevent HPV infections, cases of cervical cancer in the US decreased substantially.

Dr. Farber, after working at Children’s Hospital in Boston, developed chemotherapy to treat childhood leukemia, thus laying the foundation for modern cancer chemotherapy.
Science is becoming more and more linked to medical practice. It requires an understanding of disease mechanisms and genetic data in order to determine the best treatment for each individual patient, or in other words – PRECISION MEDICINE.
