Why you should join Probably Genetic

Probably Genetic’s mission is to enable better healthcare through genomics. Together, we will achieve this in two steps - first, by building the foundation through diagnostics and second, by using our data asset to facilitate treatment development. Our first product is a consumer initiated-physician ordered DNA test to help rare disease patients, a population of 400 million people globally, half of which remain undiagnosed, get answers for their symptoms. Probably Genetic uses machine learning and DNA tests to identify rare disease patients early, helping patients thrive and receive proper treatment. Supported by leading investors, including Y Combinator, Khosla Ventures, TenOneTen Ventures, and several angels, we will launch our service in 2019. Our team consists of PhDs, Rhodes Scholars, seasoned Biotechnology executives and Forbes 30 under 30 winners from the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, specializing in genetics and artificial intelligence.
