Our history

At GeneDx, we pride ourselves on being the experts in what matters most: Identifying the underlying genetic causes of many of today’s most challenging illnesses. We were founded in 2000 by two scientists from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) determined to address the needs of people with rare disorders and the clinicians treating these conditions.
