Dr. Dekel Taliaz
CEO & Co-Founder
Dr. Dekel Taliaz is an experienced business manager and experimental neuroscientist.
He is currently the CEO and co-founder of Taliaz Ltd., a mental health startup that has developed PREDICTIX, a game-changing artificial-intelligence-driven clinical decision support tool, to help clinicians find the right treatment, the first time.
Dekel founded Taliaz upon discovering that while there have been tremendous advances in DNA sequencing and computer technologies, the huge value from the vast amounts of genetic and clinical information available today is not being leveraged in clinical practice. Since co-founding Taliaz, he has turned an idea into a commercially available service, with demonstrated success in fundraising, R&D, business development and marketing.
Dekel also served as a combat officer in the Israel Defense Force (IDF), leading a squad of soldiers. The role involved supporting command with strategic planning, as well as in the field problem solving in life threatening situations.
Dekel has published numerous, highly-cited papers in leading peer-reviewed medical journals and received several honors and awards for his research.
