our vision

We are helping people with genetic diseases to start a new journey

475 million

About 475 million people, or 10 percent of the world's population, suffer from rare diseases, and over 80% of them are genetic in nature.

7 years

The average time to diagnosis is seven years - the so-called diagnostic odyssey. This places a considerable burden on patients and their families.

The right information at the right time

We aim to pave a way forward by improving the accuracy, speed and accessibility of genetic testing, providing patients with the right information at the right time and empowering them to make informed health decisions.

JOURNEY

Making a difference with genetic medicine

Recent developments in genetic sequencing technologies have revolutionized genomics, and developments expected in the coming years will make it an essential part of medicine.

As genetic testing becomes more widespread in healthcare, the interpretation of the vast information it provides has become the biggest bottleneck in extending it to more patients and healthcare systems.

That’s where our journey started.
