Our Story

TetraScience is the R&D Data Cloud company with a mission to transform life sciences R&D, accelerate discovery, and improve and extend human life. While the company was founded in 2014, we began our R&D Data Cloud journey in 2019 with the origin of the Tetra Data Platform (TDP). We encourage you to read more about our company history in this blog post: Tetra 1.0 and 2.0 | The Noise and the Signal.

The Tetra R&D Data Cloud provides life sciences companies with the flexibility, scalability, and data-centric capabilities to enable easy access to centralized, harmonized, and actionable scientific data and is actively deployed across enterprise pharma and biotech organizations. As an open platform, TetraScience has built the largest integration network of lab instruments, informatics applications, CRO/CDMOs, analytics, and data science partners, creating seamless interoperability and an innovation feedback loop that will drive the future of life sciences R&D.
To meet the unique demands of the world’s most important research labs, TetraScience has developed three unique and integrated capabilities – the Tetra Data Platform, Tetra Partner Network, and Tetra Solutions Team composed of scientists, data scientists, and cloud experts – to deliver the world’s first and only open R&D industry data cloud capable of ingesting and engineering data from any lab source.

The TetraScience team combines a deep understanding of life sciences R&D with cloud-native mindsets and data science expertise. Backed by Insight Partners, Alkeon Capital Management, Underscore, and Impetus Ventures, TetraScience currently counts over 100 leading pharmaceutical and biotech companies as customers.

Our Mission

To be the most trusted and valuable partner to the world’s scientific community, fueling innovation, facilitating collaboration, accelerating discovery, and enhancing and extending human life.

Our Team

Patrick Grady
Patrick Grady
Chairman & CEO

Patrick is responsible for TetraScience’s strategy and operational execution and oversees all functional areas of the company. Patrick is considered the co-founder of Tetra 2.0, jointly envisioning and implementing the Tetra R&D Data Cloud with original founder, Siping “Spin” Wang.

Patrick helped pioneer several of the core technologies - including web services, service oriented architectures (SOA), and software-as-a-service (SaaS) - which now undergird the $100B B2B cloud market. He also played a pivotal role in commercializing virtual assistant/AI technology which is now ubiquitous in consumer applications such as Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant. A highly-regarded visionary and CEO in cloud platforms and apps, business and data networks, B2B commerce, and FinTech, he’s been recognized as one of the leading CEOs andinnovators in the B2B market on numerous occasions. Patrick was also a recipient of the 2006 Fast Company award, given to the top 50 people in the world to “change the way we live and work”, for his pioneering efforts in virtual agent / AI technology, joining Bill Gates and Bill Clinton among others that year.

Patrick was the founder and CEO of Rearden Commerce, the first enterprise SaaS company and one of the most innovative and fastest growing companies of the early Cloud era. By 2011, Rearden was worth $1.5B, making it the 6th most valuable privately-held tech company in the world at the time. Rearden’s high-water mark of $1.5B was artificially capped by strategic investors who committed a number of egregious governance and commercial contract breaches which forced the company to sub-optimize and exit early. Unimpeded by these actions, given its recurring revenue and competitive moats, Rearden today would be worth well in excess of $40B. These breaches also deeply impaired one of Silicon Valley's greatest cultures, leaving Patrick more passionate than ever about building and preserving inspirational, empowering, and impactful cultures, and ensuring best-in-class governance.

Patrick serves as Executive Chairman at Clearbit, the marketing data engine for all customer interactions. Clearbit is funded by Zetta, Bedrock, First Round Capital, and Battery Ventures, among others.

Patrick is the proud father of two epic daughters. Ryan is a senior at the United States Naval Academy, where she’s majoring in Cyber Operations and minoring in Mandarin, and concurrently working on her Master’s in Security Studies at Georgetown’s Walsh School of Foreign Service as a USNA graduate scholar. Reagan is a 10th grader who similarly aspires to a career in national security, while also becoming the best 3-point shooter in America.

Siping Wang
Siping “Spin” Wang
Founder, President, and CTO

Spin founded the original TetraScience and partnered with Patrick to rebuild TetraScience around their shared vision of the R&D Data Cloud and jointly oversees our corporate and product strategy with Patrick. Prior to becoming CEO in 2019, he served as CTO of the company. In this capacity, Spin was selected to the Forbes 30 Under 30 in Science in 2017. Spin graduated from Cornell University with B.S. degrees in Applied Physics and Electrical Engineering and holds a M.S. from MIT in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. While at MIT, Spin was awarded the Lockheed Martin Fellowship. During 2019 and 2020, Spin served on the board of Pistoia Alliance, a global, not-for-profit organization working to lower barriers to innovation in life science and healthcare R&D through pre-competitive collaboration.
