As the CEO of Scipher Medicine, Alif is a pioneer in integrating network science with molecular data to match individual patients with the most effective therapies. Disturbed by the healthcare system’s inability to prescribe the right drugs to the right patients, Alif and the Scipher Medicine team have spent the last decade pioneering a network medicine platform – a powerful tool that has the potential to predict patient response to targeted therapies, develop precision diagnostics and repurpose previously approved drugs.
A Swedish national with a perspective on global healthcare systems, Alif has led cross-disciplinary teams throughout Asia, Europe, and the Americas - raising over $225M in venture and private equity capital. Alif is an experienced speaker at healthcare events and was most recently featured on The Bio Report podcast (“Bringing Precision Medicine to Autoimmune Disease”) and at the BIO International Convention (“Precision Medicine Outside Oncology: One Size Does Not Fit All).”
Through Alif’s leadership, entrepreneurial spirit, and systems biology and engineering expertise, Scipher will continue to leverage AI and network medicine to continue improving healthcare utilization and patient outcomes for years to come.
