We are the future of genetic testing providing hyper-personalised genetic analysis to individuals, enabling them to proactively manage their health, and make informed decisions about their lifestyle with accurate and scientifically validated information. These decisions will result in the improvement of their health and lifestyle and ultimately their save lives
Provide world-class genetic services to protect and improve the health of individuals and the wider population.
Francois and Jackeline met while working together for the US Government on a research project worth $52MDll for BARDA* a division of the Department of Health and Human Services.
Years later, François and Jackeline, were working together on the development of a next-generation sequencing (NGS) platform for rapid diagnosis of antimicrobial-resistant infections and influenza. They sequenced successfully the DNA of a bacteria found in an unprocessed blood sample. The achievement was significative because before they developed this technology this would have been impossible.
The successful sequencing opened the possibility to bring genomics and human DNA to individuals and transform analysis forever. They started conceiving the idea of hyper-personalised analytics applied to health, but this was not enough, they were interested in creating a technology capable of total DNA data privacy that could be adopted by others globally.
A couple of years later, armed with their passion for health and risk prevention, CircaGene was born; genetic testing capable of identifying and prevent genetic disorders with the added value of actionable recommendations relevant to individuals and clinicians alike with the only aim to improve health, change lifestyles and more importantly, save lives.
