Celmatix research sits at the powerful intersection of an in-house interdisciplinary team of talented scientists, our large-scale datasets, and a network of top physicians and medical centers.

Discoveries

Six years of clinical and genetic research studies have yielded findings that are changing the treatment of infertility for the better.

Our data analytics research has revealed that up to 25% of IVF patients discontinue treatment while they still have a good likelihood of success.

Our cost effectiveness studies have demonstrated that more than 90% of patients would benefit from initiating with IVF or moving to IVF faster after failed non-IVF treatments.

Our whole genome sequencing efforts have revealed common molecular pathways that are disrupted in patients struggling to have a baby.

Our large-scale, meta-analysis work has revealed patterns in fertility disorders, such as endometriosis, that were not detectable on a smaller scale.

White papers

Celmatix research that has recently been presented at medical conferences.

Treatment efficiency

Initiation with or rapid progression to IVF with eSET is predicted to be the most cost effective strategy for all patients.

Egg-embryo transition

We have developed mathematical models to better understand the determinants of the oocyte-to-embryo transition in humans.

Gene expression

Our meta-analysis provides a more statistically powerful elucidation of gene expression signatures in endometriosis, revealing that therapies may be more effective at particular moments in the uterine cycle.

Obesity, PCOS, and IVF

Multivariate approaches reveal that obesity has a greater impact on IVF success rates in patients with PCOS.

Publications & presentations

Over the past six years, Celmatix has been developing an unprecedented understanding of reproductive function in humans by leveraging both clinical data science and genomics. We believe that both major advances in the treatment of infertility and proactive fertility management will arise from the intersection of clinical and genomic data.

Research partnerships

PReM is an alliance created to investigate what an individual’s genetic signature and personalized metrics say about his or her overall ability to have a baby. These insights have the potential to revolutionize how fertility difficulties are diagnosed, treated, and possibly prevented.

23andMe

23andMe and Celmatix have embarked on an ambitious research collaboration to improve infertility outcomes.

BioMe

We’ve partnered with the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai BioMe Biobank Program to uncover how a woman’s genetic information might influence her fertility.
