About us

Who are we?

We’re a team of doctors, researchers, journalists and experts dedicated to demystifying human health. You’ll find us at Atlas Biomed, a company that makes at-home DNA and microbiome tests to help people understand what makes them unique, how to enhance health and protect from common diseases using personalised lifestyle recommendations.

What do we do?

We believe that a healthier future is possible, and within reach of all. Based on hard science and current research, our articles explain how your DNA affects important health parameters, what gut microbes are doing for your body, how your habits influence your wellbeing and how you can use that to your advantage. Every article we publish is reviewed, verified and approved by a geneticist, MD or microbiome experts. Often, all three.
