Today ThinkGenetic has announced a partnership with Mapmygenome™, a leading personal genomics company based in India specializing in clinical genomics and molecular diagnostics focused on preventive healthcare. Through this partnership, ThinkGenetic users from India will be able to connect more easily to resources closer to them. Mapmygenome currently has teams providing medical services all over India.
“We are happy to have the opportunity to provide a streamlined option for our users from India,” explains ThinkGenetic Co-Founder and President, Len Barker. “While we do not provide medical services ourselves and continue to be U.S.-based, we are passionate about offering those living with a genetic condition access to the help they need wherever they are located.”
ThinkGenetic regularly receives inquiries from users worldwide with their questions or concerns about living with genetic disorders. If appropriate for answering a question received from a user from India, ThinkGenetic will provide the user with a trusted referral to the ABGC certified genetic counselors at Mapmygenome.
“ThinkGenetic is a unique platform offering resources for patients on genetic conditions at a scale no one else has,” says Mapmygenome CEO Anu Acharya. “Mapmygenome’s mission is to empower consumers, patients, and physicians with knowledge about genetics and genomics through genetic testing and genetic counseling services. We believe this partnership will empower more patients from India in their quest in finding a solution with our partnership genetic counseling services.”
While most of the ThinkGenetic knowledge base is currently written in English and focuses on those in the U.S. and Canada, ThinkGenetic currently has visitors from over 170 countries and aims to increase the focus and reach to meet global needs. This partnership is an important step in fulfilling this.
