November 12th, the day the Quebec-based biotech celebrated its launch, was also reserved for the company’s advisory boards’ meetings. Comprised of a scientific and a business board, the meetings allowed Louis-Philippe Noël, co-founder and CEO of BioTwin, to question his advisors on the company’s various projects, both current and future.
BioTwin’s scientific board met for the first time last Friday morning, which brought together scientists from prominent institutions in North America.

BioTwin celebrated its official launch last Friday evening. The objective of the event was to celebrate the collective efforts of the startup’s team: they succeeded in demonstrating that it is possible to create a digital twin powered by artificial intelligence from, among other things, biological samples and biometric data. Family, friends, and partners of the young company’s team were present at the Salle des Promotions on November 12th to raise a glass to BioTwin’s success.
Being restricted by the COVID-19 measures still in place in the region, the occasion was of short duration, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. only. Cocktails and speeches were shared, where Mr. Noël and Mr. Sheldon expressed their pride and motivations for the young company. At the end of his impassioned speech, Mr. Noël invited the room to give a first blood sample to start the creation of their digital twin. More than half of the people present lined up to join the innovative project.
BioTwin harnesses AI, biomarkers, and biometrics to create a virtual human copy. These digital twins allow early detection & prediction of diseases and innumerable simulations. Through a “toolbox” ecosystem, this technology will revolutionize the wellness & healthcare fields by making personalized & preventive medicine a reality.
