HeartGenetics, a Spin-off from Instituto Superior Técnico from Lisbon, is a new Bio and Informatics company that has developed "solutions in a box", including genetic tests and computational tools, to increase the efficiency of "lab to clinic" genetic testing, particularly dedicated to the cardiovascular field. HeartGenetics core skills comprise: 1) a genetic testing optimization platform; 2) unique databases and knowledge; and 3) proprietary software. HeartGenetics was awarded the 2013 entrepreneurship award from the Everis foundation. At HeartGenetics, the team has developed a set of genetic tests that can be prescribed in several areas, e.g.: Obstetrics, Cardiac, Inflammation and Cardiovascular Pharmacogenetics. Our core competences also comprise the development of new high-tech bioinformatics tools and databases that support highly accurate analysis and integration of both genetic, phamacogenetics and clinical data. The innovative clinical decision support and reporting systems, HEARTDECODE, allow clinicians and practitioners to perform a more accurate diagnosis, prognosis and risk stratification, thanks to a more comprehensive, more simple to read and more straight to the point reports. HeartGenetics is a VC-backed company since April 2013, by Portugal’s unique world-class VC player.
