Color’s mission is to help people lead the healthiest lives that science and medicine can offer. We launched in April 2015 with a simple, affordable genetic test to help people understand their risk for hereditary cancer. Last year we added coverage for hereditary heart disease. Between them, cancer and heart disease constitute the two biggest causes of death worldwide.
By marrying state-of-the-art software with clinical genomics, we’re building a personal health service that helps people benefit from the information in their own bodies. Early detection helps individuals create preventative plans with their doctors using appropriate screening guidelines relative to their personal and familial risk of certain diseases including cancer and heart disease.
We’re an early stage company making a huge impact in people’s lives. Our team combines the best of distributed systems engineering, machine learning, product design, and precision medicine from Google, Twitter, MIT, UCSF, UC Berkeley, Brown, Morehouse and Stanford.
