People-driven health discovery platform

People have an inalienable right to own and control their health data. Once rights are respected, I believe we also have a responsibility to help our community thrive by securely sharing our life data for disease and wellness research.

LunaDNA is reshaping discovery research by transforming individuals from study subjects into research partners. Health discoveries require the organization and contextualization of life data across a diverse population. LunaDNA goes directly to individuals for private, transparent and fair data sharing, fixing historical limitations of poor representation, missing information and value imbalances. Individuals who share data can receive ownership shares in LunaDNA and never have to relinquish control.
