Utah neurologist, who heads LineaGen's multiple sclerosis area

LineaGen will also leverage Utah's unique and proven population-based genetic resources and information, which facilitated the identification of several cancer genes -- including BRCA1 and BRCA2 (breast cancer) and the APC (colon cancer).

LineaGen's strategic partnerships with prominent scientists and researchers will draw upon and expand the university's seminal and continuing contributions to human genetic understanding of diseases and disorders. The University of Utah has discovered more disease-related genes than any other university in the world, and the multi-generational Utah Population Database is the world's most comprehensive population and medical database -- comprised of more than ten million records relating to more than six million individuals in Utah, Idaho, and surrounding regions.

"I believe LineaGen is better positioned than any other company in the world to utilize the wealth of genetic information contained in the Utah Population Database and related resources, in order to provide meaningful and useful insight into the cause and nature of human diseases that will in turn lead to the advancement of personalized healthcare," said Prescott. "LineaGen is uniquely qualified to understand the complex interplay of factors involved in many diseases, and to create an effective discovery-to-commercialization platform for the identification of novel molecular factors that will lead to more effective diagnostics and targeted treatments for these diseases."
