Our Story

While working in several research labs as he pursued multiple degrees at university, Jonathan Gross encountered the challenges of running a research group. He spent part of his time utilizing his programming skills to support a variety of tasks and routines in the lab. These experiences provided the inspiration and motivation for the formation of BioData in August 2007.

In 2010, Digital Science acquired an equity stake in BioData as part of their strategy to focus on providing world-class software tools and services to scientists, managers and funders with the ultimate aim of making research more productive through the use of technology.
