About Diagnostics at Owkin:

Our ambition is to potentiate precision diagnosis in oncology with artificial intelligence applied to digital pathology. Pathology slide images, taken from biopsied or resected tissues, are a yet-untapped, ultra-high dimensional data modality that offer a huge potential for deep learning application to better understand disease, optimize patient care & improve treatment decisions.

We have for instance developed two products based on AI and digital pathology to tackle major challenges in precision oncology:

The first one is about evaluating the risk of relapse in early breast cancer for a better adaptation of the therapeutic strategy. The second one is about decreasing the burden of MSI screening for patients with Colorectal cancer. If detected, the MSI phenotype leads to a very specific care pathway with a treatment based on immunotherapy improving the chance of survival for the patient.

We are now looking for an Associate Product Manager to join the Diagnostics team to support the work of product leads to help them work more efficiently and effectively and contribute to the development of innovative software products for digital pathology.
