Bringing Epigenetic Technology and
Artificial Intelligence to Life.
FOXO LABS is creating next-gen underwriting protocols & consumer value propositions for the global life insurance industry.
Ai-powered epigenetic technology
Our goal is to eliminate underwriting friction, and offer health and wellness insights with ai-powered epigenetic technology.
Data privacy built with scalable infrastructure
Our technology is built with best-in-class technology and infrastructure with data privacy being our top priority.
Our proprietary epigenetic biomarker technology will introduce next-gen underwriting protocals for life insurance carriers.
World class science team & partnerships
All of our science is built by our world class science team and has been rigorously validated by leading industry experts.
That maturation of genetic sequencing technology platforms, coupled with emerging artificial intelligence (AI) and bioinformatics tools is allowing us to understand human biology in ways never imagined.
We specialize in discovering and understanding the role epigenetics, or gene expression, plays in individual health, wellness, and aging. We provide services and tools to the industries we serve in order to improve human health.
While a person’s underlying genetic code is stable throughout life, the mechanisms that drive their gene expression is a rapidly evolving science. We look at how DNA methylation relates to specific aspects of health, wellness, and aging. Our epigenome is the combination of natural and environmental modifications that imprint biomarkers to leave a unique biography of an individual’s health and wellness history.
How We Do It
We identify epigenetic biomarkers along the epigenome by applying advanced automated machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies to create predictive models that correlate epigenetic profiles with states of health, wellness, disease, and aging.
We ensure our data is prepped, quality-checked, and organized via custom bioinformatics pipelines to ensure reliable analyses.
We support high throughput human and mouse epigenetic methylation and DNA array testing through CLIA certified laboratories.
Who we serve
We are a team of professionals covering a broad spectrum of expertise that ranges from entrepreneurial growth, molecular biology, and machine learning to computer science, finance, and marketing.
