Explore and Validate Connections Critical to Drug Discovery

We help inform strategic drug discovery decisions by unlocking critical relationships and insights from a complete landscape of biomedical data.

tellic brings big data, machine learning and scientific text data together to form a single source of truth for biomedical concepts. With our technology, synonymous gene and disease descriptions are factored in for clear-cut results. Researchers and analysts can dramatically increase efficiency in searching multiple data sources and identifying relationships between biomedical entities.

Science is expanding, and biomedical professionals are challenged every day by processes dependent on legacy systems:

  • Incomplete taxonomy of scientific concepts
  • Fragmented and siloed external and internal document stores
  • Unclear understanding of biomedical concepts and relationships

Other natural language processing solutions cannot keep pace with science, and thus fail to deliver complete and relevant information. With these solutions, valuable search time is wasted, biomedical professionals are overloaded and miss key opportunities.

Empower your organization with technologies that yield novel insights

tellic was founded in 2015 by Richard Wendell, a Fortune 500 Chief Data Officer, whose vision was to make it easy for pharma companies to apply emerging data science technologies. tellic pioneers a new category of enterprise-scale biomedical language processing and knowledge discovery powered by machine learning.

tellic’s innovation emerges from three distinct skill sets: life science, data science and DevOps. Our company has attracted thought leaders with expertise in molecular biology, functional genomics, drug discovery, AI and machine learning, linguistics, image processing, big data engineering and enterprise software development. 

tellic’s endlessly curious team cross-trains in each others’ fields to elevate the group and expand the frontier of pharma technologies. This unique approach gives pharma companies an unprecedented ability to use data to make breakthrough drug R&D decisions. The resulting insights can accelerate life-enhancing drugs to patients who need them.
