AICAP Services


Pre-Accelerate Cambridge



At AICAP Services, we are experts in HEOR with a focus on SLRs and evidence synthesis primarily in the life sciences and pharma space. We specialise in intelligence for exploring new areas of commercial and scientific interest but are also equipped to undertake full-scale systematic literature reviews for formal Health Technology Assessment submissions.

We have a proof-of-concept product to automate screening, classification and visualisation of thousands of scientific publication abstracts for evidence synthesis that we have applied for a customer in two projects, one for understanding the landscape of antibiotics, microbiome and diet and the other to gather competitive intelligence on a large pharmaceutical company for business development purposes. We have formed a limited company and have minor revenue from the one client who we are providing our AI offering to as an end-to-end service (from idea through search strategy to synthesised report).
