Bionamic makes software for life science

Bionamic is located at Medicon Village in Lund, Sweden, and was founded by Anders Carlsson, Ph.D. and Morten Krogh, Ph.D.

Founders

Anders Carlsson did his PhD in immunotechnology at Lund University, researching recombinant antibody microarrays. He then received a three-year postdoc grant from the Swedish Research Council to join the Kuhn Lab at The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California for genomic and proteomic characterization of circulating tumor cells in prostate and breast cancer. He continued this work as a senior scientist at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, before moving back to Lund where he founded Sciscitor AB, a bioinformatics consultancy.

Morten Krogh did a PhD in theoretical high energy physics at Princeton University. He continued with physics research as a postdoc at the Institute for Theoretical Physics, Santa Barbara, and as a fellow at CERN, in Geneva. He then switched field to bioinformatics, working as a postdoc and associate professor at the Department of Theoretical Physics and Biomedical Center at Lund University. He left the university and founded the company Amber Biosciences AB, which did consulting in bioinformatics, statistics, and programming. After that, he worked as a software engineer at the San Francisco based companies Realm and Ditto.
The inspiration to start Bionamic AB came from seeing how dramatically software designed with the right combination of smart algorithms and simple user interface, great visualizations and automation increases the speed and accuracy of capable researchers.
