Chief Technology Officer
Signal Processing Research Scientist
Albus Health (registered as ‘BreatheOx Limited’) is a medical technology spinout company from the University of Oxford that develops intelligent remote monitoring systems. Within three years of starting, we have won several innovation awards, raised nearly £3 million in funding and commercialised our first product through a contract to supply to one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies in the respiratory space.
Why do we do what we do?
Chronic respiratory conditions such as Asthma and COPD are common, affecting a billion people worldwide, and are some of the leading causes of death and disability. The research and clinical trials in these conditions cost several billion annually. However, the best tools available to monitor symptoms at home are subjective or require active engagement from the users, leading to very poor adherence and data quality. Lack of reliable tools leads to slower, costlier, and inefficient research, as well as hundreds of millions of hospital admissions which could be prevented through efficient symptom monitoring at home.
Albus Home RD, our first product, is an award-winning device that remotely monitors symptoms without anyone having to do or wear anything. With our proprietary algorithms, this enables the collection of continuous and objective data when people are at home without requiring any input or action. Being passive and plug-and-play, it is suitable for people of all ages, regardless of their technical ability or location. Moreover, it does not need any contact between two people or between the user and the device, making it ideal for the post-Covid world! This has exciting applications in clinical trials and, through the use of predictive analytics, the prevention of respiratory emergencies such as asthma attacks.
Who are we?
Our team comprises industry-leading clinical, technical, and commercial experts, including the Head of Respiratory Medicine at the University of Oxford, globally renowned respiratory researchers, head of Computational Intelligence and Biomonitoring Lab at Oxford, and the former CEO of a medical technology unicorn. Our co-founders have a combined background in computer science, finance, and clinical practice.
What have we done so far?
We spun out of Oxford in 2017 and have since won 3 innovation awards (InnovateUK) by the UK government as well as the AI in Health and Care Award announced by the Secretary of State for Health and Care at the London Tech Week 2020. We commercialised our first product in 2019 to help pharmaceutical companies collect objective data in their clinical trials and secured a contract to supply our technology to a clinical study by one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies in the respiratory space.
What’s in it for you?
We are at an exciting stage of the company - moving from early adoption to a rapid growth phase, scaling our first product and building the next one.
We are now looking for passionate individuals to bring our vision of disruptive medical technology to life that improves the lives of hundreds of millions of people globally. Working in a young medtech start-up means that you will work directly with an exciting team of engineers, computer scientists, doctors and researchers who are passionate about solving one of the most enormous unmet needs in healthcare.
