Nurture Genomics

Every year, millions of American children face the challenges of undiagnosed genetic conditions. Staggeringly, over 10.8 million children in the United States, aged 0 to 17, live with a genetic condition. Despite the availability of advanced medical technology, only a mere 2% of these conditions are detected early, with approximately 12,000 cases identified through state-run newborn screening programs. These screenings currently fail to cover over 700 treatable genetic conditions, leaving a significant gap as thousands of new treatments emerge in the drug discovery pipeline.
