Why you should join MoGen

Rare disease treatment has a lot of trial and error due to small numbers of patients. MoGen is solving this by building a database of genetic-treatment-outcome information that is valuable to pharma, physicians and patients. Data is collected and aggregated from our patient portal designed to manage complicated conditions and delivered to care providers through our clinician’s portal. We have developed a proprietary AI model to help tailor search results based on genotype.   We plan on expanding from this target space into additional rare genetic disease and contribute to efforts in diagnostics and therapeutics using the data we collect.   Our founding team is stacked with Stanford alumni with PhDs in Genetics, founders with profitable startups and a family member of a rare disease patient.
