FDNA’s game-changing technology introduces an objective computer-aided dimension to the “art of dysmorphology”, transforming the analysis into an evidence-based science.
Dr. Michael R. Hayden
Chairman of FDNA’s Scientific Advisory Board & Steering Committee and Editor in Chief of Clinical Genetics
FDNA is developing technology that has the potential to help so many physicians and families by bringing them closer to a diagnosis- there are literally millions of individuals with unusual features around the world that lack a diagnosis and therefore lack information on natural history, recurrence risk and prevention of known complications.
Dr. Judith G. Hall
Professor Emerita of Pediatrics & Medical Genetics UBC & Children's and Women's Health Centre of BC
FDNA has been “right on the money”, providing me with relevant, accurate and insightful information for differential diagnoses.
Dr. Cynthia J.R. Curry
Professor of Pediatrics UCSF, Adjunct Professor of Pediatrics Stanford
I am excited to be a part of the FDNA community, promoting broad information sharing with my peers to amplify the scientific and clinical value of our community’s accumulated knowledge for the purpose of efficiently diagnosing individuals with rare genetic disorders.

Chief, Division of Medical Genetics A.I. duPont Hospital for Children
FDNA's idea of incorporating several dysmorphology resources (OMIM, GeneReviews), supported by their visual analytic technology, will be able to improve researching of genetic syndromes - all within a single mobile app.
Dr. Chad Haldeman-Englert
Assistant Professor Pediatrics at Mission Fullerton Genetics
Given the advancement of visual analytical technology, it’s about time Dysmorphology is supported with computational capabilities and moving this to mobile support, is simply the next logical step.
Dr. Chanika Phornphutkul
Associate Professor of Pediatrics Director, Division of Human Genetics Department of Pediatrics Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University
Having an archive of cases easily accessible from my mobile device anytime and anywhere is a long-time unmet need.
Dr. Lynne Bird
Rady Children's Specialists of San Diego
FDNA's solution is a huge leap forward for dysmorphology. It saves me significant time when I’m evaluating patients in my clinic and provides me with insightful tools that help me generate a differential diagnosis.
Dr. David A. Chitayat
Head of the Prenatal Diagnosis and Medical Genetics Program at Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto
Shortly after learning about Face2Gene, I’ve started to incorporate this amazing tool into my workflow. Soon enough, Face2Gene’s analysis flushed out references that I would not have considered for several of my patients, which turned out to be their correct diagnosis
