Client Services and Administrative Specialist

About Phenomix

Phenomix Sciences is an early stage startup with a mission of providing healthcare solutions that will enable personalized management of chronic diseases with better efficacy, fewer side effects, and lower costs. Our approach is based on a phenotype-driven multi-level “omics” platform supported with deep learning technology to identify chronic disease sub-types in order to individualize therapy selection and enhance treatment outcomes. Our first product is a novel blood-based test expected to launch in early 2019 and will accurately predict the sub-type of obesity which can be used to guide the selection of an appropriate therapy or medical intervention.
