CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tempus, a leader in artificial intelligence (AI) and precision medicine, today announced a multi-year, strategic collaboration with Pfizer in which the two companies are working together to further AI and machine learning-driven efforts in therapeutic development. The goal of this collaboration is to more precisely gather insights that will inform novel drug discovery and development in oncology.
Through this collaboration, Pfizer has access to Tempus’ AI-enabled platform and its library of de-identified, multimodal data to uncover insights that will power therapeutic development in oncology. Pfizer also has access to Tempus’ broad range of capabilities that support therapeutic R&D, to advance its own oncology portfolio, including AI-driven companion diagnostic offerings and Tempus’ clinical trial matching program, TIME, that rapidly activates studies for patients in communities across the country.
