Our Mission

Glyciome is developing drugs and devices that will change genital care paradigms, in the clinic and at home.

Our patent portfolio uniquely leverages cutting-edge science in metabolomics and nanosensor-technology with our Founders’ established, human-centered product commercialization approach, to meet the demands of the $26B/yr global “personal” healthcare market.

Initial proof-of-concept for this approach was published in 2022 (doi: 10.1021/acs.analchem.1c04755).
