Congenica founders celebrate a decade of life-changing answers


Soon available on-demand


Ten years ago, a group of experts came together to realise a shared vision – that every patient should be afforded the benefits of next-generation sequencing (NGS). Combining business expertise with research from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, NHS clinicians and genetic testing laboratories, Congenica was born.

On 23rd May 2023, as Congenica celebrates its first decade in business, we welcomed four of our founders and our CEO to a very special webinar focusing on their work over the past ten years. From major breakthrough projects and development of new genetic technologies, to how these translate into clinical applications and are transforming healthcare practices, the speakers have helped to deliver life-changing benefits to patients around the world.
