About Us

Known Medicine is building an engine to determine the best treatment for every cancer patient.  We’re a seed-stage startup backed by Y Combinator, Khosla Ventures, and other top funds and angels. Our team encompasses clinical affairs, bioengineering, and data science and is quickly growing. 


Our core platform uses patient tumor samples, which are broken down and made into hundreds of 3D micro-tumors. We treat each with different drugs and combinations then determine tumor sensitivity to each. Through the marriage of biology and data science we are able to generate the largest 3D cell culture dataset of its kind and use it to generate biological, computational and clinical insights. .
