Getting to know MiRcore

miRcore is a 501(c)(3) non-profit research organization with a vision of global, multilateral collaboration toward treating individuals based on their unique genetic profiles and environmental circumstances. We are certain that getting beyond the single-gene approach is critical to replacing current trial and error processes with systematic, personalized medicine. While systems biologists are now undertaking sophisticated mapping of genetic networks while taking into account environmental effects such as infection, exercise, sleep, and stress, there remains the challenge of increasing the signal-to-noise ratio when dealing with massive amounts of biological data.

Efficient Research

We support scientists’ research through our insight into microRNA (miRNA) function. The primary goal of these collaborative efforts is to produce research papers presenting readily testable hypotheses. Significant results will allow pursuit of grant applications and patents. Our efforts will be compensated following a fee-based schedule until mutual grants or subcontracts are in place. You can consult without hiring. We ask for co-authorship if our analyses significantly contribute to your research.
