A rare opportunity arises for an family fighting a rare disease

“You could have picked me up off of the floor.  Out of 50,000 people at a conference, the chances of meeting someone researching A-T is very, very rare.

Discovery drives the human race to new heights each day.

Explorers in all fields have made our lives and world better through their courage to venture into new frontiers and beyond. Yet, their ability to discover has always relied on the proper vehicle to propel them from theory to reality. At Exemplar Genetics, we enable discovery by providing the vehicle to break new ground on the medical research frontier.

Until now, researchers have lacked animal models that faithfully  represent human diseases. As a result, a sizeable barrier has blocked progress in the discovery of human disease mechanisms; novel diagnostics, procedures, devices, prevention strategies and  therapeutics; and the ability to predict in humans the efficacy of those next-generation procedures, devices, and therapeutics.
