About Veritas Genetics:
Veritas is a passionate and dynamic group of scientists, engineers, genetic counselors, business folk, and designers. Their goal: empower people to live healthier, longer.

But, their story began in the 1970s with a young student passionate about one thing, DNA. George Church’s work set in motion countless genetic discoveries, including the Human Genome Project, the first initiative to map all genes in the human genome.

George, along with a group of visionaries and scientists, including leaders from Harvard Medical School’s Personal Genome Project, co-founded Veritas.
