Oncora Medical, a Philadelphia, PA-based digital health startup, raised $1.2M in seed funding.
Backers included iSeed Ventures, BioAdvance, and medical physicist and entrepreneur, Dr. Thomas “Rock” Mackie. In addition to the funding, Gary Kurtzman, MD, Managing Director, Healthcare at Safeguard Scientifics (NYSE:SFE), is joining Oncora’s board of directors as chairman.
The company intends to use the funds to establish an engineering team in its headquarters and complete early product installations with leading health systems.
Co-founded by David Lindsay and Chris Berlind in 2014, Oncora is developing software to improve the way oncologists access, organize, and learn from past radiation treatment data.
The company’s platform leverages this data to provide doctors with tools to create personalized treatments for future patients.
Oncora is a participant in the University City Science Center’s Digital Health Accelerator and is supported by the Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Southeastern PA, an initiative of the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development funded by the Ben Franklin Technology Development Authority.
