About Our Organization

Freenome (free•nohm) is the dynamic collection of genetic material floating in your blood (cell-free) derived from the trillions of cells in your body. It is your living cell-free genome changing over time and space.

Your freenome is the genomic thermometer of who you are as you grow, live, and age. Our platform allows you to track the health of your freenome so you can make the best decisions for you. Your freenome helps you design your “healthy" and then serves as a warning system for “unhealthy" conditions such as cancer so that you can get the care that you need, when you need it.
It is precision wellness - for your freenome - for your health.

New study finds bias against female lecturers among student course evaluations, the Economist reports.

A research duo finds that science and technology graduate students who turn away from academic careers do so because of changes in their own interests.

Students whose classmates are interested in science are more likely to think about a career in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, a new study says.

CNBC reports that the genetic counseling field is expected to grow as personalized medicine becomes more common.
