Description

Nebula Genomics is a well-funded, early stage startup using blockchain to build a decentralized platform for the sharing of genetic data and other health data. Our platform will ultimately allow people and large institutions such as biobanks to upload their whole genomes (full DNA sequence) as well as other health information and share this data with researchers anonymously and securely in exchange for payment via cryptocurrency. Our goal is to remove the roadblocks that are currently preventing researchers from fully leveraging genomic data in order to better understand what our DNA says about us, power healthcare discoveries, and bring about an era of more personalized medicine. We envision a world where every individual will have the opportunity to have their genome sequenced for free or at a low cost and healthcare providers will be able to use that information to provide more personalized medical care.

Our founding team has both deep scientific and technical experience, and includes legendary geneticist / Harvard Medical School professor George Church. We are strongly passionate about our goal and are looking for team members who are also interested in improving healthcare for all.
