About Our Organization

Named one of Crain's "Biotechs to Watch," Celmatix is changing the face of women’s health through the development of digital tools and genetic insights focused on fertility potential. Our unique approach combines data science and genomics to bring personalized medicine to fertility. Our leadership team includes a diverse group of world-class scientists and professionals including a founder recently recognized by Fortune Magazine as one of 15 Entrepreneurs Disrupting their Industries, Inc Magazine’s 10 Women to Watch in Tech, and named an Aspen Institute’s Health Innovator Fellow, and a NYC Venture Fellow by the NYCEDC.

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.
