At our core, Lifecode is a specialized clinical laboratory focused on the genetic basis of human disease. Through the use of next-generation sequencing technology (NGS), and advanced bioinformatics, we provide timely clinical information designed to help physicians make the best treatment decisions for their patients.
With the emergence of personalized medicine, today’s physicians are challenged with a flood of new data and information, adding complexity to their daily treatment decisions. The rapid pace of medicine has resulted in hundreds of thousands of new publications, thousands of clinical trials, and dozens of new drugs that may or may not be appropriate for a given patient. By providing both the bioinformatics and “complex data” expertise to sort through this sea of new information in real time, Lifecode will enable physicians to match the right treatment, for the right patient, at the right time in their care.
While Lifecode technology is applicable to many areas of healthcare, our initial focus is oncology. In the U.S. alone, 1.6 million people are diagnosed with cancer each year, and more than 14 million are living with the disease. Rapid advances in next-generation sequencing, biomarker profiling, and new drug development will provide the opportunity to extend the lives of cancer patients in a meaningful way.
At Lifecode, our mission is to help to significantly improve the lives of these cancer patients by providing molecular information that is concise, accurate, and actionable.
