We send you personalised information plus opportunities to contribute to the latest research and trials - all based on your health and DNA.
Animation showing how to toggle ask/allow options for sharing basic information in future studies. The same applies to the medical history survey. You can also delete any of the responses you provide.
Animation showing the user scrolling through reports. They have uploaded DNA data, so the reports are personalised to them. (We have designed the charts we use for reports to be accessible using a screenreader.)
Animation shows notifications appearing on a phone screen - they are from "Georgia at Sano Genetics". The first reads "Ready to see your new research matches?" and the date shows as June 15. The second reads "Thanks for completing our online survey" (May 13), and the third is "You’re eligible for an at-home study" (May 6).
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 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.
We explain scientific concepts and new research projects in language that is clear and easy to understand. We don’t shy away from communicating challenging concepts and we pride ourselves on making them accessible.
We use industry standard encryption mechanisms both in transit and at rest when dealing with your data. This means that your data is always safe and secure. Any information sent between your computer and our servers is encrypted using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) - you can always check that the padlock icon in your internet browser is present to ensure you are interacting with our site, and not a site trying to impersonate us.
While some research has decades of support and in-depth study, other findings may be comparatively new. We provide detailed information and references about the status of the science underlying our Sano Personal DNA Reports and the information on our website.
