What our research offers
Access real science
Read the latest scientific studies on genetics and genetic diseases. Gain valuable insights and a better understanding of your health.
Take part in research
Choose which research programs to take part in and contribute to the development of precision medicine.
Several of our research projects pay you for your time and effort, and we will not support research aiming to monopolise your data.
Supporting World-Class Research
We work with some of the best research institutions in the world to enable research to happen faster. We share the results with you as they are released and make sure you understand exactly where you contributed.
Current Research Studies
We run regular medical studies with our partners to make the next scientific breakthrough. Not so many showing right now? We're making some changes to the Sano platform to make it easier to find research and resources related to a particular condition, so please check back soon!
G2019S LRRK2 Parkinson’s Disease: Increasing Awareness and Genetic Testing Program
This program aims to support the development of a precision medicine intended to treat patients with a genetic form of Parkinson’s disease. Up to 15% of cases of Parkinson’s disease have an underlying genetic cause, yet most patients have never had genetic testing.

The Genetics of Autism
This project aims to understand the genetics underlying autism using tests developed by researchers at the University of Cambridge. All adults (over 16 years old) are welcome to participate, whether you have an autism diagnosis or not. If you have genetic data from 23andMe, AncestryDNA, or other services, the data can be used in the study, but it is not required for participation.
