From Pathologist to Technopreneur

Prepare to dive into an intriguing quest of self-discovery — not of personality, but the secrets encoded in your DNA, the key to your past, present, and future.

Dr. Rachna Kairon, the innovator behind myPreciseDNA by Synapse Laboratory, is making genetic testing more accessible for a healthier Malaysia. As a seasoned pathologist, Dr. Rachna has pushed microbiology and molecular diagnostics to new frontiers, pioneering genetic testing in Malaysia's digitised healthcare landscape.

Despite challenges, from naysayers to significant investment demands, she persisted, driven by the vision of empowering everyday Malaysians to understand and manage their genetic health.

Synapse, her brainchild, is the first in Malaysia to offer private newborn screenings and affordable direct-to-consumer genetic tests.
