Access Oncology Discovery Data & Custom Cohorts
Aster Insights has cultivated an exclusive clinical network through a one-of-a-kind collaboration between leading bio-pharmaceutical companies and prominent cancer centers across the United States.
With 350,000+ lifetime consented patients in the HIPAA-Compliant Total Cancer CareTM (TCC) Protocol, AVATAR is uniquely designed to help solve target identification, biomarker discovery, and indication strategy.
We do this by providing longitudinal clinical data and highly-curated molecular information — Whole Exome Sequencing (WES), Whole Transcriptome Sequencing (WTS) and Germline sequencing datasets—all while shielding the patient’s identity behind an AVATAR.
With AVATAR, you gain unmatched connectivity to real-world oncology data from tens of thousands of consenting cancer patients over their lifetime.
Our pre-defined and precision cohorts, which accurately reflect the nuanced and personal nature of cancer, are driving drug discovery like never before.
AVATAR identifies novel biomarkers associated with treatment responses, informing clinicians of appropriate clinical trial options for their patients.
AVATAR is changing the way scientists design clinical trials, enroll patients, and benchmark their research.
AVATAR is ever-expanding, with an average of ~25,000-30,000 new patients added every year, and the ability to capture data on drugs new-to-market.
AVATAR richness stems from the direct link between patient, researcher and drug developer, allowing the growth of longitudinal data which expedites cancer drug discovery.
