Genomics, the Future.
We strive for a more fair and sustainable future by providing access to genomic data. We believe that people should be able to safely own, storage and share their genomic data with researchers around the world. To protect against diseases, deliver better and faster disease detection and personalised medicine and treatment based on people’s profile.
We foresee a future where people can take control and responsibility over their health by using information about their own body. Knowledge that has become available by scientific research performed on big research groups.
Currently there are many trends within society, the scientific research field, political domain and EU legislation that all strengthen our goals.
We fight for ultimate access to genetic knowledge to every person on earth. To let people take control over their own health and their children. There is an abundancy of genomic knowledge around us that we currently do not use in practice. Knowledge to protect people against developing diseases, better and faster disease detection and to provide personalised medication and treatment. The rise of improved genomic diagnostics and next-generation DNA sequencing diagnostics and software the scientific community has proven the value of access to genomic data to save billions of lives. However, this knowledge is locked-up into the system as genomic data is stored within fragmented silos of third parties.
In the past, due to a lack of secure technology, people could not own and store their genomic data themselves. Because of this knowledge has become inaccessible for people, but also for doctors and researchers. There is no easy access to genomic data. Because of this people cannot access their genomic data to take control over their health and the speed of research is severely restricted. These are lost opportunities for both the developing and less developing world as research needs access to big amounts of data from various geographical areas to be able to improve the medical community’s understanding of different mutations’ impact on health and find new and better treatments.
Fortunate, with the rise of next-generation technologies this should no longer be the case. As genomic data has the power to disruptively change our future for the better.
