Inspired by the paradigm shift from “one size fits all” to Precision Medicine, Raya envisaged similar changes in skincare. In 2016, she co-founded LifeNome, a DNA-based wellness company, where she serves as Chief Science Officer. Raya’s mission is to bring advances of Genomics Sciences and Artificial Intelligence to the skincare industry to enable personalization of skincare products based on individual’s biology and lifestyle.
