Predictive Oncology Engages LifeSci Advisors as Strategic Investor Relations Partner
Comprehensive, multi-faceted IR program to focus on raising awareness of Predictive Oncology and its portfolio of unique, proprietary assets capable of accelerating oncologic drug discovery and enabling drug development
EAGAN, Minn., March 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Predictive Oncology (Nasdaq: POAI), a science driven company leveraging its proprietary artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities, extensive biorepository of tumor samples, CLIA laboratory and GMP facility to accelerate oncologic drug discovery and enable drug development, today announced that it has engaged LifeSci Advisors, a leading New York-based investor relations (IR) consultancy serving life science companies, to implement a comprehensive IR program that will include, among other key activities, targeting of and outreach to leading analysts and institutional investors, bank conference targeting, non-deal roadshows, corporate communications, and Key Opinion Leader (KOL) events focused on AI and machine learning-assisted drug discovery.
“Simply put, since assuming the role of CEO last November, I have been blown away by the untapped potential of our assets and capabilities, including our artificial intelligence drug discovery engine, PEDAL, that we can leverage against our extensive biobank of more than 150,000 tumor samples and 200,000 pathology slides to accelerate and de-risk drug discovery on behalf of academic institution and drug development partners,” stated Raymond F. Vennare, Chief Executive Officer of Predictive Oncology.
“With the global AI-assisted drug development market currently at $1.1 billion and growing at nearly 30% per year, we are indeed in the right place at the right time. I believe the time is now to aggressively raise awareness of our company among influential life sciences analysts, top tier institutional health care investors, and other critical participants in the Wall Street health care ecosystem. LifeSci Advisors is the largest integrated investor relations firm in healthcare and the life sciences with global operations across North America, Europe, and Israel. Given its many case studies demonstrating the success of its programs, and its highly specialized team with experience working with companies across the entire drug development spectrum, I believe LifeSci is the perfect partner for us at this time and I look forward to a mutually successful relationship.”
