Reducing the impact of endometriosis through timely diagnosis

Challenge Endometriosis affects 1 in 10 women and can lead to significant health issues. Despite this, diagnosis can take up to 7 years.  Timely diagnosis has the power to transform women’s lives, enabling appropriate treatment to stop the progression of the disease and preserve fertility. 

Solution The Cailín team will develop a non-invasive digital biomarker for endometriosis by measuring disease-specific symptoms and applying advanced machine learning techniques. This disruptive AI-enabled technology will end the diagnostic delay.
