LifeOmic Discusses RTP Plans With Triangle Business Journal

Triangle Business Journal reports on LifeOmic’s anticipated business plans for the Research Triangle Park area:

With local ties in hand, Brown is now heading a new company called LifeOmic – following the close of Interactive Intelligence’s sale Dec. 1

“We’re looking to disrupt the precision medicine space,” says Jeff Swartz, LifeOmic’s chief operating officer.

LifeOmic – which has $20 million in funding, according to its website – plans to bring in experts from areas such as cloud computing, bioinformatics and genomics to create “a new precision medicine solution that spans multiple data sources” says Swartz.

The company currently employs nine people, and Swartz says he expects that number to be at 30 to 35 people by mid-summer. He says that 10 to 15 of those employees will likely be based in RTP.
