About Our Organization

Sophia Genetics was founded in 2011 to make Data Driven Medicine a reality. With the adoption of digital technologies, such as Next Generation DNA Sequencing, the healthcare industry entered the Big Data world raising new challenges in data protection and data analytics. We quickly recruited a world class team of more than 90 talented individuals, building a cross-disciplinary team that could understand and address those challenges. 

We always bet on quality, going into the details of the data, and similarly to Swiss watch makers, developed extremely powerful and reliable technologies to reach the highest possible accuracy.

We are passionate, act with integrity and make it our priority to offer patients the most accurate diagnosis of their disease so that they can receive the most effective treatments available.
