Aignostics started in 2018 within the walls of Charité Berlin and the Berlin Institute of Health, based on years of research conducted by the pathology department of Charité, TU Berlin and Fraunhofer HHI.

Following initial incubation, we spun-out of Charité and BIH in 2020, and are now focusing on pioneering computational pathology for pharmaceutical research, clinical trials and CDx development.

We are an interdisciplinary team (80+) of machine learners, data scientists, pathologists, biologists, software engineers, regulatory experts and business professionals.
