We are technologists, physicians, engineers, product managers, and designers who believe that together, we can move women’s healthcare into the era of precision medicine. We’re driven by our mission to transform healthcare technology by offering breakthrough, actionable insights that lead to better health outcomes for women, while simultaneously giving our users the tools and information they need to stay healthy.
DotLab's name was originally inspired by Dorothy "Dot" Hodgkin (1910 - 1994). When she won the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1964, "Oxford Housewife Wins Nobel" was the headline that ran around the world.
The "housewife" was in fact one of the most outstanding scientists of the 20th century. She analyzed complex molecular structures including hormones, antibiotics, cholesterol, and vitamins. The technique she used involves passing X-rays through crystals, which produces diffraction patterns on film from which the 3D structures can be deduced.
DotLab was also inspired by the promise of the digitization of healthcare. Our goal is to pave the way for seamless access to critical women's health diagnostics and data, as the internet created information access for all. Our company name, DotLab, and our first product, DotEndo, follow a common theme of "DotCom," one of the most recognizable elements of the Internet.
