CENTOGENE welcomed Germany’s Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel on May 23, 2019 to its headquarters together with Manuela Schwesig, Minister-President of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The visit focused on explaining CENTOGENE’s capabilities in the field of genetics, and in particular demonstrating the Company’s advancing artificial intelligence program.
Dr. Arndt Rolfs, CEO CENTOGENE commented: “We are extremely honored to have welcomed Dr. Angela Merkel and Manuela Schwesig to CENTOGNE. In Germany today and in particular across Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, there is a strategic agenda that prioritizes the digitization of the economy. Today we demonstrated to our esteemed guests CENTOGENE’s work in rare genetic diseases and our digital strategy with leading-edge artificial intelligence program.”
“Artificial intelligence is enabling the integration of patient-focused metabolomics, proteomics, genetic data in our diagnostic business, while for our pharmaceutical solutions AI is enabling the rapid discovery of biomarkers, cohort identification, and other patterns in our genomic, proteomic and phenotype datasets. Ultimately however, all our work at CENTOGENE is underpinned with a priority on bringing hope to patients and their families by shortening the diagnostic odyssey.”
