Detecting disease early for tomorrow’s health
Hummingbird’s Mission is to harness the power of blood bourne miRNAs to “read” the immune system’s response to disease, enhancing the potential for innovative disease screening, symptom-based diagnostics, disease-specific prognostics as well as monitoring of patient-centric therapies.
The privately held company is based in Heidelberg, Germany and Boston, USA.
Why we are doing what we are doing
From a multicenter study to the development of a miRNA-based liquid biopsy diagnostics.
