About Oken

Founded in 2019, Oken is the fruit of Pr. Alan Cohen’s research at the University of Sherbrooke, in Canada. At Oken, we design and build multivariate measurements of biological systems and the aging process from standard laboratory biomarker data, in order to help the population improve and maintain good health. Integrating artificial intelligence, complex systems theory and biologically informed approaches, our algorithms take standard clinical biomarkers and generate groundbreaking windows into the underlying health state of individuals. Backed by years of academic research and numerous peer-reviewed publications, our proprietary algorithms and expertise capture the loss of homeostasis in physiological systems, yielding strong predictions of future changes in health state.
