Iva Babukova

Iva is a co-founder and CTO at Biomage, a startup that develops tools for biologists with the aim of improving human health. She architected and implemented Cellscope, the world’s most advanced open source data analytics platform for modern high-throughput biology. The platform is used in cancer, immunology and cardiovascular research at leading universities worldwide, including Harvard Medical School & University of Oxford. In Scotland the biggest users of the technology are University of Glasgow and University of Edinburgh.

Before starting Biomage, Iva worked as a software engineer, spending most of her time at Skyscanner, where she was one of the main developers of Slingshot — the company’s in-house continuous cloud deployment platform. She graduated from the University of Glasgow, with a first class MSci in Computing Science. Her BSc and MSci research was in algorithmics and constraint optimisation.

Talks & Content

Single cell RNA sequencing is a paradigm-shifting technology that has changed how we make discoveries in cancer, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative biology. Previously only biologists equipped with computational and bioinformatics skills could use it. At Biomage, we have changed that.
