We redefine traditional boundaries; collaboration and inclusion are the keys to success, whether inside our halls or outside our walls.

By focusing on rigorous science, we are pioneering globally accessible and accurate diagnostic tests to identify cancer at its earliest stages when it can be most successfully treated. This will advance the diagnostic paradigm and offer better health outcomes for more people.

If you want to go fast, go alone.

If you want to go far, go together.

African proverb

Paul and Joseph, Mercy’s co-founders, are thrilled to dedicate 1/3 of the value of their investment in Mercy BioAnalytics to the establishment of the Mercy Foundation. The foundation supports life transformation for young people who need it the most and are least able to help themselves, focusing on those that have experienced foster care, homelessness, abandonment, abuse, neglect or incarceration. This legacy of serving the underserved is at the heart of our co-founder’s personal story.
