About Us

Inflammatory diseases (IDs) are now amongst the greatest threats to human health across globe. They include both chronic inflammatory diseases (cIDs), which drive many non-communicable diseases (NCDs), as well as acute inflammatory diseases (aIDs) such as COVID-19.

Our Vision is to lead the development of safe, effective and affordable personalised precision healthcare solutions for IDs to help individuals to live longer, healthier and happier lives.

Our Mission is to fast-track diagnostic tools and treatments for individuals with chronic inflammatory diseases (cIDs) as well as those vulnerable to poor outcomes from acute inflammatory diseases (aIDs).

Our aim is help increase the quality of life, extend healthspan, reduce sickspan and reduce the cost of care.

Our current focus is on precision healthcare technologies for cIDs of the bowels, brain and skin as well as early identification of vulnerable individuals at high risk of suffering serious sickness or death if they were to be infected with SARS-Cov-2 virus

The Avenna Precision Healthcare System (AvPHS)

We started Avenna to help change the way healthcare is done for chronic inflammatory diseases (CIDs).  What we have now for cIDs is really Sickcare. It operates too late – so individuals suffer from inflammation-related tissue and organ damage. And healthcare for cIDs is becoming unaffordable – so all of society suffers.

But it doesn’t need to be like that. There are precision medicine technologies that can detect specific cIDs many years before permanent damage occurs – but these can be stuck in research labs. In Avenna we are helping to translate the most promising of those research technologies into practical, affordable, accessible tools so individuals can find out what cIDs they’re developing early on and, through evidence-based, personalised self-care protocols, greatly improve their health futures.

To that end, we are developing a suite of tools to aid the translation and clinical testing of precision medicine technology. One such tool is the Avenna Precision Healthcare System (AvPHS). This is a framework for a life-course approach to modelling, tracking then improving an individual’s health trajectory. AvPHS combines the following:
