It's personal, for all of us.

Our Story
Too many people know the pain of losing someone too soon. Co-founder and CEO Shashi Shankar knew first-hand what it was like to lose a loved one to incomplete data and delays in the clinical trial and approval process. Instead of getting the chance to make new memories with his family, Shashi's grandfather was unable to access a soon-to-be-released life-saving and clinically effective treatment for his gastroesophageal cancer.
The Novellia team are industry experts in the field. From taking successful drugs to market to building world-changing technology that makes it easier for patients to access medical care, their unique healthcare and data backgrounds give them deep insight into the ways patients, doctors, and innovators can benefit from access to better data. They created Novellia to bridge the gap between the patient's whole story and data currently accessible today.
By harnessing longitudinal and individually-linked patient data for clinical trials, treatments get to market faster and families can stay together.
