Uniting patients with leaders in medical research to improve and innovate healthcare options
The In-Depth Difference
Finding a diagnosis may seem intimidating, but you’re not alone. Nearly 1 in 10 Americans are affected by a rare disease. We unite patients and innovators with resources to improve healthcare.
Genomic sequencing alone rapidly diagnoses thousands of diseases. Our research programs continuously identify new associations between health and genetics to expand this capability.
Bridging the Gap
Gaps in data lead to gaps in care. Our programs are designed to support deep phenotyping - a research approach that captures the complete spectrum of possibilities for a trait. This reveals patterns in health and genetics to spur faster, more accurate diagnosis.
We grow collaborations to do science at scale. Integrating state-of-the-art technologies expands research horizons by increasing the sheer amount of data we can collect and analyze. Big data, machine learning, AI - these are just a few of the methods redefining medical research.
Counseling & Support
Genetic counselors and advocacy networks unlock the full potential of genetic testing. Reaching beyond the clinic, these leaders in patient care are also key opinion leaders for rare diseases by providing insights to the hurdles of diagnosis, care, and treatment availabilty.
Rather than focusing on a few small regions of DNA, whole genome sequencing provides the entire DNA sequence. Because we've already generated the hard part - the sequence - we can keep asking new questions with the same data. This allows us to update diagnostic reports to keep pace with emerging findings.
