About us

We have created MNM Diagnostics to help people understand their genetic background and use this information to fight diseases. Our interdisciplinary team combines expertise in DNA chemistry and cell biology, with AI and machine learning to provide cutting-edge genome analysis and develop new approaches to personalized medicine.

Our mission

We believe that every person should have access to the information encoded in his/her DNA. This information will help people to prepare to fight diseases which may occur during their lifetime.

Traditional genetic testing uses less than 0.1% of the information contained in our DNA, and focuses on identifying mutations in a handful of well-understood genes. The remaining 99.9% of DNA contains useful diagnostic information, but is ignored by other testing services due to its complexity.

At MNM we are combining next-generation DNA sequencing (NGS) technology and our unique algorithms with cell biology and mouse models of genetic diseases, to decipher this information and create personalized diagnostics for individual patients.

Our team

Our team of engineers, scientists, medical doctors and genetic councillors published more than 200 articles (including research papers in Nature, Science, Cell) and three patents.

Dr Paweł Zawadzki

CEO and co-founder

After obtaining an inderdisciplinary PhD in 2009, he spent multiple years as a postdoc at Oxford University in Departments of Biochemistry, Physics and Oncology. From 2017, as an assistant Professor at Department of Physics, Poznan University ( Link), he leads a research group focusing on DNA metabolism. Author of numerous publications in prestigious journals (link: Link).
Now building MNM Diagnostics to help people use information encoded in their genomes to improve their health.

Zespół IT

Bio: Ukończył Wydział Informatyki i Sztucznej Inteligencji na uniwersytecie w Edynburgu w Szkocji. Od doktoratu marzy o wprowadzaniu algorytmów sztucznej inteligencji do praktyki medycznej. Pracował w Instytucie Sangera w Cambridge, gdzie odczytano wcześniej część ludzkiego kodu DNA. Jego algorytmy do klasyfikacji raka piersi na podstawie zmian w DNA opisano w czasopismach Nature i Nature Medicine. Obecnie w instytucie Memorial Sloan Kettering w Nowym Jorku pracuje nad zastosowaniami algorytmów do analizy DNA w onkologii dziecięcej.

What we offer

We offer patients a thorough analysis of their entire genome, providing an understanding of the causes genetic diseases, including of rare and unknown diseases.

Furthermore, our whole-genome analysis can provide guidance for personalized therapies for patients with diagnosed cancer, which can reduce side-effects and increase the efficiency of current treatments.

MNM Origin™

NOW AVAILABLE!

Find the cause of your disease and learn how to treat it

Statistically, up to 3% of the population has a genetic defect; these can be metabolic, developmental or intellectual. MNM Origin provides information about the cause of the disease, based on the analysis of the genome of the patient, and their parents’. Thanks to this, we are able to establish the direction of medical treatments the patient should take, and thus we help to make the correct therapeutic decisions.

MNM Info™

NOW AVAILABLE!

MNM Diagnostics offers bioinformatics consulting for business, public, legal and clinical partners. We offer sensitive data storage solutions following the highest confidentiality and security standards. We support large spectrum of DNA and RNA projects from in vivo and in vitro studies in human, mouse, rat and other model organisms.

MNM Onco™

AVAILABLE SOON

Effective selection of personalized anti-cancer therapy

If you know how the tumour developed, then you know how to fight it. In MNM Onco, we analyse the genome of the tumour. The comparison with healthy genome (from the same patient) provides information that is used to select the most effective therapy for the patient in question.
