Tobias H. Kloepper, PhD
CEO & Founder
+ More about Tobias
Tobias has been working in the Life Sciences for more than 15 years and has applied cutting edge data and analytics technologies to advance our understanding of biology. He founded Aigenpulse to help accelerate drug development processes through enabling the use of modern data technologies in Life Science companies. He specialises in supporting successful technology transformations and implementing advanced data analytics environments.
Tobias received his PhD from the University of Tuebingen in Germany focussing on algorithmic approaches to model the evolution of bacteria. His interest in transferring technology into every day uses led him to work at the Max Planck Institute in Goettingen, the Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge and the Dunn School in Oxford before venturing into applying his skills in industry.
Satnam Surae, PhD
CHIEF pRODUCT OFFICER
+ More about Satnam
Satnam has been active in the Life Sciences for more than 10 years. While originally focussing on Biochemistry, he discovered early on his passion for applying information technologies to biological challenges. His unique ability to transition between both worlds enables our teams to effectively develop the product and at the same time provides him with the ability to shape our customer engagement.
Satnam received a BSc (Hons) in Biochemistry and MRes in Computational Biology from the University of York (UK). He went on to receive his PhD in Computational Structural Biology from University College Dublin (Ireland) in 2015 focussing on engineering Bone Morphogenetic Proteins as potential therapeutics for diabetic nephropathy. Following this, Satnam worked in industrial biotechnology developing metabolic models to engineer microorganisms with the aim of producing chemical intermediates prior to joining Aigenpulse.
