Caroline Craven Testimonial

I joined the Sano Community because I am curious about the role of genetics in my multiple sclerosis and other conditions. I also want to help others by taking part in pertinent research that can help guide the way to personalised medicine and even better, a cure.

Being part of the Sano Community is a great way to discover exciting research opportunities while learning more about my genes.

Welcome to Sano

Nice to meet you. We founded Sano because we believe that contributing to research should be engaging, supportive and meaningful for participants. Having experienced both sides of medical research - as research participants and researchers - we felt there was huge potential to improve the process and make participating in research rewarding and easy to do. We met working on our PhDs at the University of Cambridge, and our team brings in years of expertise in medical research, genetics and security-led software engineering. Thank you for coming along on the journey with us.

Our promise

Our core value at Sano is transparency. From how we handle your data to how we operate as a company, we are committed to complete honesty. Here are our promises to you.
