Our mission

To accelerate the future of personalised medicine

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.
