Google Life Sciences, a company under the Alphabet umbrella alongside the “classic” Google, is getting a new name: Verily.

Andy Conrad, the head of Google Life Sciences — which spun out of the Google X lab earlier this year — briefed Boston Globe Media’s website Stat on the name change.

There’s a new video on the website that describes Verily as “an independent Alphabet company focused on using technology to better understand health, as well as prevent, detect, and manage disease.”

Recently Google Life Sciences — er, Verily — announced a partnership with the American Heart Association.

Google announced the formation of the Alphabet umbrella company in August.
