About Unlearn:

Clinical trials are risky and can dramatically extend the time needed to bring a new therapy to patients. Much of this time delay is because of slow patient recruitment. This profound problem has found a paradigm-transforming solution. Unlearn is a science-first company that has created the first machine learning platform for populating control arms with perfectly matched digital subjects that share the same baseline variables as their counterparts in the experimental arm. Using intelligent control arms populated with these digital twins vastly reduces the time needed for patient recruitment, increases study power by reducing variability, and provides individualized information about response to treatment. In the end, it’s about increasing confidence in trial results. It’s about getting new medicines to patients who need them as quickly as possible.

It’s about time.
