About Notable Labs:
Changing the way cancer is treated is our mission, which starts with putting patients first. We’ve developed a high throughput robotic lab platform that uses a patient’s live tumor cells -- in a microenvironment that mimics the human body -- to predict the safest and most effective cancer treatments. We screen thousands of FDA-approved drug combinations against the patient's own cancer cells to identify drug combinations that can be immediately prescribed by their doctor without a clinical trial. The end result of our process is a report which prioritizes therapeutic options for the patient based on how well the treatment targets their cancer cells relative to healthy cells. Our platform is also used by a number of biotech and pharmaceutical partners to test the biological impact of novel drug combinations in a physiologically relevant environment, which improves and accelerates the drug development process. We harness the power of data science, lab automation, and software engineering to personalize cancer treatment and enhance drug development. www.notablelabs.com

Our investors include Founders Fund, First Round Capital, Y Combinator, several prominent angels and seed-stage funds, and Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure, a venture philanthropy firm founded by Steve Case. We have offices and a laboratory in San Francisco’s SoMa district.
