Meet Our Team

Our young team was brought together through organizing a pharmacology related hackathon event. A few months afterwards, MicroPredictome was conceived and since then, we have been working tirelessly to bring our vision of a simple microbiome based clinical tool to the market.

In September 2019, we officially joined the Techstars Montreal AI Accelerator program.
