Cumulus Neuroscience is the next-generation integrated physiological and digital biomarker platform for brain health. It provides critical insights and data to clinical trial, to accelerate the development and delivery of central nervous system (CNS) therapies to patients.
Our innovative platform has been designed to greatly improve the robustness of neuroscience clinical trials by allowing better and timely assessment of drug candidates earlier in development, with the aim in time to provide an industry-wide standard for real-world measurement of disease progression and treatment response.
Our platform has been developed to capture large amounts of real-world lab-quality data through time across multiple behavioral and physiological domains by tracking physiology, functions, and symptoms in the patient’s home. The platform also provides cutting-edge AI-based data analysis allowing it to provide the best and most cost-effective assessment of CNS treatment outcomes.
Cumulus Neuroscience is confident that it can play an important role in assisting its pharma and biotech partners to develop transformational therapies to address multiple important neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric diseases, where treatment options are extremely limited.
The Company is supported by highly experienced specialized investor the Dementia Discovery Fund (DDF) as well as LifeArc and Future Fund together with a world-class Scientific and Technical Advisory Board.
