Enhanc3D Genomics has established a genome-wide 3D-genome mapping technology, GenLink3D, which provides profound insights into long-distance gene regulation and disease pathways, demystifying the non-coding genome. GenLink3D profiles 3D genome folding at high resolution and over long distances, for all genes and their enhancers, identifying cell-type specific contacts and providing complete genome connectivity to disease pathways for the discovery of novel targets and biomarkers. 

Dr Chris Torrance, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Enhanc3D Genomics, said: We're thrilled to officially appoint Hazel as CEO. Her guidance as COO and interim CEO has been instrumental in driving Enhanc3D Genomics’ global operations, forming new connections and developing existing strategic partnerships.
