Collaboration. Communication. Compliance.

Working with global health authorities and industry leaders to provide secure cloud technology that drives forward regulatory science and innovation.

Delivering the future of secure cloud computing and collaboration to drive regulatory science forward.

Existing regulatory data solutions are plagued by outdated technology,

poor interoperability, and limited tools for supporting sponsor–regulator collaboration, raising

compliance risks and causing time-to-results to be measured in months, not days.


DNAnexus offers the leading secure collaboration and cloud computing platform. With maintained

FedRAMP and FISMA authorization and platform features such as chain of provenance tracking,

near real-time communication and data immutability, DNAnexus delivers an out-of-the-box,

regulatory-grade solution for collaboration in the cloud.

DNAnexus is partnering closely with health authorities and the life sciences industry to enable collaborative regulatory science.

Grounded in our industry-leading Trusted Research Environment capabilities, we offer a cutting-edge cloud-based platform designed to unlock the power of collaborative data analysis. By offering a secure and scalable environment, DNAnexus enables health authorities to invite stakeholders from across the globe to compare, share, and validate regulatory information—such as submissions, genomics, EHR and real-world data, and more.

The Previous State:


Months to connect collaborators and partners

Months to ingest data

Security risks due to physical data transfer

Inability to install your own software

Limited ability to perform collaborative research

Reliant on siloed on-premise computing resources

High latency and limited bandwidth
