"My goal is to help people be diagnosed sooner, get referred to fertility specialists that can help them and create a personalised treatment plan that increases their chances of conception."
“We are already helping people through at-home hormone tests and an online validated assessment of fertility risk factors. The Women in Innovation grant is going to help us develop the Doctor’s Portal, where clinicians can decide which treatment is most likely to result in pregnancy and live birth for each specific patient. We are bringing predictive analytics to the consultation room and making personalised medicine available to all patients trying to conceive.”
