SomaLogic Inc. announced today the appointments of Angela Bakker Lee, Ph.D. as executive vice president for healthcare markets, Tracy Hervey, MBA as executive vice president for life sciences markets and David McGovern, MBA as senior vice president of marketing. In these roles, Dr. Bakker Lee, Ms. Hervey and Mr. McGovern will drive business development and marketing efforts for SomaLogic’s proprietary protein measurement technology and growing portfolio of protein-based health information products.
SomaLogic, Inc. announced today that it added $81M to its current funding round with investments from a number of additional investors, for a total Series A raise of $214M. The funds raised in this round will facilitate improving, expanding and commercializing SomaLogic’s world-leading proteomic products in both the clinical and life science markets.
An international consortium led by Medical Research Council researchers in the UK working with SomaLogic performed the largest genetic discovery of host proteins involved in SARS-CoV-2 infection or severe COVID-19. The results are being shared via an open access platform to help investigators around the world prioritize protein targets for new or repurposed drugs to treat COVID-19. The information may also help medical researchers identify patients who are more likely to develop a serious case of COVID-19.
FonesLife Corporation, a subsidiary of NEC Solution Innovators, Ltd. of Japan, announced today that they will begin offering blood-based health tests built on the SomaLogic SomaScan® Platform to consumers in Japan. The tests, which deliver health-management information based on large-scale measurements of an individual’s blood proteins, are expected to help assess health and promote wellness in Japan’s rapidly aging population.
PRESENTATION: The SomaScan® Assay and Oncology
As part of the Translational Dx Virtual Summit on September 23, 2020, Dr. Sheri Wilcox, Senior Director, Scientific Liaison and Technical Services, at SomaLogic described the utility of the SomaScan® Assay in oncology applications.
WEBINAR: Building a Genetic Atlas of the Human Plasma Proteome
Protein-genotype associations (pQTLs) are an important tool for identifying proteins that link genetic variants with disease states. On August 6, 2020, Dr. Benjamin Sun discussed how he and his colleagues at the University of Cambridge used the SomaScan® Assay to develop a pQTL atlas for the human plasma proteome.
WEBINAR: What Can Proteomics Teach Us About Infectious Disease?
On June 25, 2020, Kevin Coombs of the University of Manitoba described his work using the SomaScan Assay to identify biological processes associated with infection by Zika virus and various strains of influenza. He also discussed how the SomaScan Assay could be used to further study infectious disease, including the current COVID-19 pandemic, in the immediate future.
WEBINAR: Plasma Proteins as Comprehensive Indicators of Health
On May 12, 2020, Stephen Williams (SomaLogic), Claudia Langenberg (University of Cambridge), and Peter Ganz (UCSF) discussed their recent proof-of-concept study that illustrated how measuring blood proteins at scale could lead to a future comprehensive “liquid health check.” They also explored the implications of their findings for public health, particularly in the areas of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
WEBINAR: The Liquid Liver Biopsy: Characterizing NASH and NAFLD with Serum Protein Biomarkers
On April 30, 2020, Dr. Steve Williams, Chief Medical Officer for SomaLogic, discussed how the SomaScan Assay can noninvasively and simultaneously predict all the key elements of the liver biopsy: liver fat, inflammation, hepatocyte ballooning and fibrosis based only on serum protein biomarkers.
WEBINAR: Proteomics the Missing Link between GWAS, EWAS and Disease Endpoints
On April 8, 2020, Karsten Suhre, Director of the Bioinformatics Core at Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar, discussed how the SomaScan Assay can complement genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and epigenome-wide association studies (EWAS) to link genetic variants and DNA methylation patterns to disease endpoints.
SomaLogic, Inc., global leader in proteomic discovery and applications transforming biomedical discovery and clinical diagnostics, announced today that the Company has successfully closed an Initial Series A capital raise of $121 Million. The Company anticipates that additional closings will occur within the next 90 days.
SomaLogic, Inc. announced today an agreement with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s Division of Applied Regulatory Science to evaluate the utility of large-scale analysis of proteins (proteomics) for the identification of biomarkers that may be useful in demonstrating biosimilarity of a proposed biosimilar to a reference biologic.
