The start of our friendship dates back to when we were just two high school students with a love for science. Both of us went to pursue careers in medicine but our paths diverged as we followed our respective talents in becoming a scientist and a physician. Little did we know then that we would be cofounding a company in the next 10 years. In 2018, we felt confident it was time genomic science be incorporated into the field of clinical medicine.
It was a task too daunting to pursue alone and impossible to attempt statically from laboratories or hospitals. It was only plausible with the combined expertise of science and medicine. On such grounds we founded GENOME INSIGHT and we now strive to usher in genome-based precision medicine to healthcare.
