MainlyAI has, together with Diamyd Medical, Leading Health Care, Lund University, National Diabetes Register, and Sahlgrenska University Hospital, been granted funding by the Swedish governmental funding agency, VINNOVA, in the Innovation milieus in precision health 2021 call. The project, named AI for Sustainable Prevention of Autoimmunity in the Society (ASSET) will run over five years with a total budget of 60 MSEK (40 MSEK from VINNOVA).
The aim of the innovation milieu ASSET is to contribute with personalised precision prevention of autoimmune diseases in the society. In particular, artificial intelligence (AI) techniques will be applied to learn from existing data to identify (i) individuals at risk of developing type 1 diabetes, and (ii) individuals with upcoming/newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes that would benefit the most from precision prevention or early intervention with therapeutic approaches. In doing so, data from the TEDDY (The Environmental Determinants of Diabetes in the Young) study, and other sources will be used.
The ASSET innovation milieu will be coordinated by Diamyd Medical. The application was allocated full funding amount by VINNOVA in strong competition.
