Rare genetic diseases affect 400 million people worldwide. A diagnosis takes five years due to genetic testing challenges. In the near future, understanding the results of sequencing the patient's genome will be the main challenge. The current manual process requires a high level of expertise and a lot of time to determine which of thousands of genetic aspects of a patient are responsible for the disease. Genetic disease patients needing a diagnosis don't have that time. How can we streamline this process? At Nostos Genomics, we believe technology like machine learning and simplicity are key.
We are a venture-backed healthtech startup supported by leading investors and scientists on a mission to improve the lives of 400 million people around the world who suffer from rare diseases. The platform we have developed uses artificial intelligence and computational biology to decipher how changes in our DNA can lead to disease. Through this platform, we enable genetic testing labs to provide clear and fast diagnoses to more patients.
For this, we've gathered one of the best teams of experts in genomics, machine learning, and business development. Our people aren't just part of a team, they're part of something bigger. Together, we share the mission of building AION, our platform part of a new generation of precision medicine that allows rare disease patients to make informed decisions about their health.
