Welcome to Viome Research Institute (VRI)

As the research arm of Viome, VRI’s mission is to develop world-leading technology and make it available to the consumer so they can take control of their own health, increase healthspan, and live a great, worry-free life.

VRI Kits - body

Develop consumer-friendly tests

VRI develops clinical-grade tests for stool, blood, saliva, vaginal samples, etc., that allow us to better understand the human body - at a deep molecular level. These insights enable Viome to make data-driven and personalized nutritional recommendations, which include foods and supplements. Viome’s consumer-friendly tests utilize samples that can be collected by anyone, anywhere, without the need for a healthcare provider.

VRI Studies - body

Maintain a comprehensive clinical research portfolio

VRI has a comprehensive clinical research program that has already enrolled more than 10,000 study participants in more than 20 chronic disease areas. Our clinical research programs generate accurate clinical and molecular data from people with different conditions and healthy participants. Using artificial intelligence and machine learning we gain a deeper insight into the root causes of chronic diseases. The goals of VRI clinical research programs are to develop:

  • Better diagnostic tests that can identify early signs and symptoms of diseases, so we can prevent the disease, instead of managing the symptoms.
  • Find new molecular markers of disease.
  • Better companion diagnostic tests, which will help identify the best choice of therapy.
  • Precision nutritional therapies that include diet and supplements and are solely based on the high-resolution data obtained from each person, and not generic recommendations for everyone.
