Our Vision and Mission
We see a day when people worldwide receive regular insights to help them successfully manage their personal health and wellness.
SomaLogic uniquely delivers these actionable insights from the SOMAscan® Platform, a health information system based on comprehensive protein measurements, to a global network of partners and users.
SomaLogic was founded in 2000 by Larry Gold, with the goal of improving the quality of life of every individual by transforming how health was assessed and managed, based on the precise measurement of changes in the body’s proteins.
Building on over two decades of innovative research, SomaLogic scientists have developed a new proteomics technology that makes protein measurement as straightforward as DNA measurement. This technological breakthrough opens up a deeper understanding of the molecular bases of health and disease, and empowers individuals to use their highly personalized protein information to manage their individual health and wellness in real time.
Today, SomaLogic has over 200 employees worldwide. It is headquartered in Boulder, Colorado.
SomaLogic’s logo is inspired by the first solved crystal structure of a SOMAmer binding its target protein, specifically PDGF (platelet-derived growth factor).
The elegant interaction between the SOMAmer and the protein includes a variety of unexpected motifs, among which was the insertion of the hexagonal benzyl group from one of the modified nucleotides in the SOMAmer into a pocket of the PDGF protein (zoomed view is shown in image to the right).
Our logomark (far right) is a designer’s take on that unique molecular interaction.
