LEVERKUSEN, GERMANY/READING, UK: Bayer has launched new LifeHub in UK. The hub will accelerate and optimize disease detection and data-driven drug discovery by developing artificial-intelligence-enabled imaging solutions.

The new hub is the seventh pillar of Bayer’s global network of LifeHubs designed to accelerate the co-exploration and development of pioneering solutions to solve global challenges in health and nutrition.

As a first step, Bayer’s LifeHub UK will focus on the development of AI-enabled radiology solutions by building on its longstanding knowledge and expertise in the medical imaging field. Clinical AI company Sensyne Health – after sealing a collaboration agreement with Bayer earlier this year – is one of the first companies to move into LifeHub UK. In addition to the already-established collaboration, both parties intend to conduct joint R&D activities for the development of AI-enabled imaging solutions.

Bayer’s network of LifeHubs strives to springboard solutions at the intersection of health and nutrition by exploring promising leads through collaboration with customers and entrepreneurs. As such, the brightest minds within and beyond Bayer are invited to incubate solutions, technologies and pilot new business models through alliances that explore cutting-edge technologies.

“We are delighted to launch LifeHub UK. We firmly believe that artificial intelligence has transformative potential for healthcare which can lead to enhancements in prediction, prevention and personalized treatments,” said Kemal Malik, Bayer Board Member for Innovation.

“Today’s global challenges in health and nutrition are too large for one single companyto tackle alone. This is why our Open Innovation strategy is rooted in a newly-designed global network of LifeHubs which boast offerings from partnering and incubation programs to world-class venturing activities,” added Monika Lessl, Head of Corporate Innovation, R&D and Societal Engagement at Bayer.
