The company officially spun out of the center in 2018 to bring this technology to clinics around the world.

2008

Fuchs published the first computational pathology paper and validated AI’s level of accuracy on the survival of renal cancer patients.

2013

Digitization of clinical pathology slides at MSKCC.

2016

Build deeper learning models for cancer detection, segmentation, classification, and patient stratificiation.

2018

Launch of Paige with $25M of funding from Breyer Capital.

2019

  • Granted Breakthrough Designation from the FDA for Paige's Prostate Module.
  • Leo Grady Hired as CEO.
  • Nature medicine paper published, showing clinical-grade generalizable AI created at MSKCC.
