Hi I’m Dr Marc van der Schee,

I co-founded Sanome because I was increasingly surprised how diagnostic tests are rarely developed with the end-user as a starting point.

Why aren’t there more meaningful ways to monitor your health and intervene as early as possible? A traditional siloed approach to the development of medical tests results in too many great technologies never having a real-world impact.

For me, by going back to first principles of how diagnostic tests can help people live healthier lives, the concept of Sanome began to emerge.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have worked as an academic scientist, a clinician and an entrepreneur helping scale a biomarker company. By integrating these various backgrounds I feel most comfortable working at the interface of business strategy, unmet health need, and science.

My dream for Sanome is to create a healthcare system that is more accessible, effective and equitable.
