Forward Thinking

The next generation of reproductive genetics science



We started Igenomix back in 2011 along with a group of visionaries and scientists. Our engagement focus was on the patient seeking reproductive medical treatment with one idea in mind: to obtain a healthy baby at home.

Now, with the latest scientific advances in genetics, single-cell transcriptomics and cell-free DNA, the time to evolve to IVF 2.0 has arrived.

This is the prime reason for the Igenomix Foundation to exist. The translation of scientific knowledge to reproductive medicine in an evidence-based approach is our vision and passion.

Prof. Dr. Carlos Simón

The staff at Igenomix Foundation actively works in research and employs the most advanced techniques applied to reproductive genetics.

We are here to eradicate infertility and change and improve the way that IVF 1.0 is done. But, don’t take our word for it. We are currently improving the efficiency and safety of reproductive procedures for the benefit of patients worldwide and will continue to do so.

We practice the untaught art of staying above the fray to promote new and effective diagnostic tests that disrupt clinical practice.

We are a passionate and dynamic group of over 250 scientists, engineers, bioinformatics specialists, genetic counsellors, entrepreneurs and technicians, taking a new approach to change the lives of infertile couples worldwide.

Foundation Purposes

  1. Research in the field of Reproductive Medicine, with a particular focus on genomics and bioinformatics, and the study of the various factors that affect human reproduction and cause infertility.
  2. Education in reproductive health, both for professionals and the general public.
  3. Dissemination of advances in research and studies related to the promotion and improvement of human reproduction.
  4. Development of initiatives that seek to improve the quality of healthcare in reproductive medicine.
