To change the lives of families affected by genetic diseases

Our goal is to name the disease of each child. Even if it is the only case in the world, we want each pathology to be subject to research at the highest level and each child to know the treatment they wil have one day.

An Institute that fights genetic diseases

Taken separately, genetic diseases are very rare, even exceptional, but throughout Europe, they affect 35 million people. In France, 3 million French people are affected, that is nearly one in 20.

Today, Imagine is focused on its ambition to change the lives of families affected by genetic diseases.
