WE MAKE OUR OWN SCIENCE

Our Mission|

We Improve Patient Health Through Top-Performance Liquid-Biopsy

We are visionaries.
We believe that the enormous challenge of making cancer curable can be overcome only with a different approach.
Our approach is entirely empirical, we don’t take anything for granted. We re-define the challenge itself, and combine expertise from multiple disciplines into new methods and tools.

Nucleix is a liquid biopsy company revolutionizing cancer treatment with earlier disease detection, at a time when intervention can bring the greatest impact for patients. Leveraging PCR-based epigenetics, our pioneering testing approach uses methylation-based identification for early-stage and recurring cancer detection. Our non-invasive EpiCheck® platform delivers highly accurate and sensitive results, all while providing a seamless testing option for patients and the healthcare system. Our global team operates from San Diego, United States as well as from Rehovot Israel.

HORIZON 2020

HORIZON 2020

Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020) in addition to the private investment that this money will attract. It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market. Horizon 2020 is the financial instrument implementing the Innovation Union, a Europe 2020 flagship initiative aimed at securing Europe's global competitiveness. Seen as a means to drive economic growth and create jobs, Horizon 2020 has the political backing of Europe’s leaders and the Members of the European Parliament. They agreed that research is an investment in our future and so put it at the heart of the EU’s blueprint for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and jobs. By coupling research and innovation, Horizon 2020 is helping to achieve this with its emphasis on excellent science, industrial leadership and tackling societal challenges. The goal is to ensure Europe produces world-class science, removes barriers to innovation and makes it easier for the public and private sectors to work together in delivering innovation.
