Paolo Di Domenico

CTO & Co-Founder

Paolo is a software engineer. He programmed his first
software in Basic at the age of 5 with a Commodore 64.
Since then he has gained experience in numerous
programming languages and in designing complex cloud
architecture. His goal is to develop algorithms and
software that can translate the latest scientific findings in
genomic prediction into clinical practice.

George Busby | PhD

CSO & Co-Founder

George is a statistical geneticist and science communicator. He has worked at the University of Oxford for more than 10 years and his scientific work has been published in Nature and Science, amongst other journals. He has always been fascinated by the potential of DNA to be used to reconstruct human evolutionary history by analyzing large genomic datasets with advanced statistical modeling.
He now leads Allelica's scientific team, helping to bring polygenic risk scores to the market for the first time by showing their use in medical genetics.
