We strive to improve the health of animals to extend and improve their quality of life
MI:RNA is a veterinary diagnostics company focused on early disease diagnosis through the combination of a revolutionary biomarker technology and artificial intelligence platform.
The company, founded in 2019 by Dr Eve Hanks, is a spin out from Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC).
The team has a clear vision to identify and predict diseases through cutting edge science to help pets live longer, happier lives and to improve the welfare of farmed animals whilst reducing the environmental impact of agriculture. With these ambitions in mind and the vast experience of the founding team, MI:RNA first tackled chronic disease in dogs and cats and were successful in achieving high diagnostic accuracy with their ground-breaking technology, eclipsing previous diagnostic testing methods.
The team then began to work with cattle and quickly demonstrated that this cutting-edge technology, in the hands of MI:RNA’s experts, can be applied to different disease types across a range of species. At present, MI:RNA have a highly ambitious pipeline of research and development that will revolutionise the diagnostics industry and pave the way to precision medicine.
They have focused on growing with the right people and culture. The research and development program has been crafted and augmented by a select group of experts from across the globe, all sharing the company’s vision. From the senior management team to the scientific staff and strategy advisors, the company has come together to create a ‘dream team’ with expertise in IP, commerce, AI, vet science, finance and operations.
Working in partnership with key multinationals in animal health, MI:RNA is on the path to become a leading tech company delivering impact for people, animals and planet.
