Anne Wojcicki
Co-Founder, 23andMe


Anne brings to 23andMe a 10-year background in healthcare investing,
focused primarily on biotechnology companies. Anne left the investing
world with the hope that she could have a positive impact on research and
medicine through 23andMe. From her vantage point, Anne saw a need for
creating a way to generate more information – especially more
personalized information – so that commercial and academic researchers
could better understand and develop new drugs and diagnostics. By
encouraging individuals to access and learn about their own genetic
information, 23andMe will create a common, standardized resource that
has the potential to accelerate drug discovery and bring personalized
medicine to the public. (Plus, getting access to her own genetic information
and understanding it has always been one of Anne’s ambitions.) Anne
graduated from Yale University with a B.S. in biology.
