About Us

Our Mission is to advance science and improve lives faster, together.

 

Our Vision is to make the most complex protocols easy and accessible to scientists everywhere.

 

The three Miroculus co-founders — Alejandro Tocigl, Fay Christodoulou, Jorge Soto — met at Singularity University Global Solutions Program in 2013. With their diverse backgrounds, they were drawn together by a shared desire to develop tools that facilitate high quality, advanced scientific research in their home countries. They began working on microRNA for early cancer detection and in the process of developing this technology the trio realized they were building a flexible, intelligent solution for innumerable applications. With Miro Technology Alejandro, Fay and Jorge are realizing their initial vision of making complex protocols easy and accessible to scientists everywhere.
