I hope you are doing well! I am a co-founder of a VC-backed healthcare startup, Neurona Health.
Neurona Health is a screening platform for early childhood development. Our initial use case is autism given the clear value of early intervention. Current pediatric workflows can sometimes miss autism and we aim to provide a comprehensive set of tools to catch signs early.
Currently our service involves a one time genetic test (whole genome sequencing), traditional autism screening tools (MCHAT-R), and telehealth visits with clinicians using a validated autism screening tool (TELE-ASD-PEDS). We hope that our service can augment existing pediatric workflows by helping detect signs of autism that might otherwise be missed in a typical well-child visit. We are advised by Dr. George Church, a serial entrepreneur and Professor of Genetics at Harvard, who has championed the idea of increasing genetic sequencing in the general population.
I would really appreciate it if you could check out our website and sign up for the waitlist if you are interested!
