The Houston-based organization that provides vital data science support to its clients has undergone a rebranding and entered a new era. Previously known as Mercury Data Science, the company has now officially changed its name to OmniScience. Founded in 2017 as a spin-off of local venture capital group Mercury, the company is now led by CEO Angela Holmes, who assumed the position in 2022.
The rebranding aligns with the company’s mission of supporting innovation at the intersection of biology and data science. The new name is a combination of “omniscient” and “science,” reflecting the company’s focus and technology. OmniScience’s software assists customers in various areas of the life science spectrum, such as navigating key data insights for clinical trials, purpose-built AI development, and other data science services.
With more than 20 employees listed on their website, OmniScience is based at Texas Medical Center Innovation. The rebrand signifies more than just a name change; it represents a bold step into the future. The company aims to play a pivotal role in shaping the data science landscape in life sciences.
