Diaceutics offers data collab opportunities at Dataworks Belfast

  • London-listed medtech, Diaceutics is inviting healthcare technology innovators to collaborate with them in advancing new scientific discoveries at their new Precision Medicine hub, Dataworks.

    The innovative hub is part of the Kings Hall Life Sciences in south Belfast.

    Research groups, companies and healthcare organisations can choose to co-locate alongside Diaceutics or to work alongside their team of highly qualified experts and to gain access to their Global Data Repository through a joint Data Collaboration Agreement.

    Amassed over the last decade, Diaceutics’ precision medicine diagnostic testing data repository unlocks access to deep analysis of over 300m global de-identified patient testing records.

    49 disease-specific treatment pathways (Diagnostic Deductive Pathways – DDPs) have already been mapped from this via accelerated algorithmic applications which are enabled by the company’s platform technology - DXRX.

    Peter Keeling, Chief Executive Officer of Diaceutics, said: “The value of real-world data for precision medicine is now key to precision medicine commercialisation yet is so multidimensional that it requires collaboration to be fully realised, which is why we invite key stakeholders in the space to join us in exploring uses outside and adjacent to those we are applying today.

    "We envisage Dataworks as a thriving and creative data hub of data analytics companies, medical professionals and patient centric groups collaborating in a shared space," he continued. 

    “At Dataworks, data analytics will live alongside a flow of patients and professionals, focused on understanding and improving patient health. The future of healthcare is data enabled, Dataworks has been designed with that in mind, I am convinced new learnings and innovations will arise from living alongside the front line of healthcare.”

    Construction of Dataworks was recently completed and Diaceutics will move into the building this summer. It consists of smart office, laboratory, and shared space adjacent to the iconic Kings Hall building. The development will provide a secure and collaborative space for companies to focus on the rapidly growing healthcare data market.

    Dataworks sits in direct proximity to healthcare professionals serving patients within the park and alongside Belfast’s major hospitals and universities and innovative medical research facilities.

    As well as Dataworks, the extended Kings Hall site - formerly the Balmoral showgrounds - will also include a range of age-appropriate living accommodation, a mixed-use medical facility, a multi-storey car park and childcare nursery Malone Kindergarten to support employees working in the park.

    Planning permission for the next phase of development at the iconic site has just been granted by Belfast City Council and construction is expected to begin soon.
