At Illumina, the faster we can innovate, the more lives we can help save. Our industry-leading investments in research and development are transforming how clinicians detect, diagnose, and treat many conditions, including cancer, genetic disease, and other diseases like neurological, cardiovascular, and infectious diseases. Powering the future of personalized medicine, our work will improve patient outcomes and drive down overall healthcare costs. Our vision is access to genomic medicine for every patient in need.
Challenges like inequity of access to health care and underrepresentation of global data diversity magnify the need to bring the power of genomics to all. We work to close the genomic medicine gap and advance the next generation of care in geographies where specialists are limited, and clinical resources are sparse.
Through our partnership with Genetic Alliance, iHope Genetic Health aims to provide clinical whole-genome sequencing (WGS) access to tens of thousands of families across the globe impacted by genetic disease. At least half of iHope Genetic Health's efforts focus on areas of the world in need outside the US, with more than one-third of Illumina support dedicated to patients in Africa.Learn more
We are building a global community of students, scientists, researchers, educators, entrepreneurs, policy-makers, and clinicians passionate about using genomics to transform human health.
As an engine of genomics innovation, we understand that the larger we grow our network of partners, the more patient lives we can help change. Together, we are expanding the reach of genomics by catalyzing genomic startups, expanding genomic literacy, advocating for greater genomic coverage and adoption, and empowering patients.
To date, our Illumina for Startups initiatives have raised $1 billion in collective venture capital funding to accelerate innovation in the entrepreneurial community. We are aiming to reach over 200 organizations by 2030.Learn more
