About us

Our story

Our mission

At Nicolab, we connect the right physicians at the right time to streamline emergency workflows. By providing physicians with all necessary information at their fingertips, they can diagnose patients more accurately and make faster treatment decisions.
Connecting the right people at the right time with AI-analyzed patient scans and centralized patient information streamlines clinical care to prevent unnecessary delay to treatment, giving patients the best chances of living their normal life after the emergency department.

Our origin

Nicolab was founded in 2015 following the acclaimed MR CLEAN trial, the first Randomised Clinical Trial proving the benefit of Endovascular Treatment.
The trial led to a global paradigm shift in acute stroke care and triaging, resulting in the hospital Hub and Spoke model.
Leading MR CLEAN researchers and our co-founders, Dr. Merel Boers and Dr. Renan Sales Barros, recognized the need for an AI solution to revolutionize stroke care. With exclusive access to the heterogeneous MR CLEAN dataset, Nicolab developed StrokeViewer. StrokeViewer provides the most accurate AI algorithms to diagnose stroke patients worldwide.
Our background is steeped in leading clinical research, which is why we continue to invest and contribute significantly to research, ensuring that Nicolab remains at the forefront of driving innovative change and improving outcomes for stroke patients.

Our story today

While Nicolab continues to run its operations with Headquarters in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, we are proudly an Australian-based publicly unlisted company with an expanding global presence.
