Invitae is a global leader in medical genetic testing. Invitae helps hospitals and health systems manage complex populations, improve clinical quality, and speed up the latest research. Our medical genetics services help pharmaceutical companies develop new medications, identify rare genetic diseases, and improve their own trials.It all started in 2010 when our Founder was working as an emergency physician with a focus on infectious disease epidemiology. His desire to drive effective change led him to discover that most hospitals were not doing formal genetic risk assessment for patients on the hospital wards. With some time, effort and ingenuity he co-founded Invitae and started testing patients in the hospital setting.
