New AOA Gallery

Gallery PortraitsAware of Angels has a new portrait gallery going in at Recursion Pharmaceuticals in Salt Lake City!

 http://www.recursionpharma.com/

We combine innovative biological science with machine learning and deep learning to discover new therapeutic opportunities for rare genetic diseases – or any disease that we can model in cells. Founded in 2013, we are making strides towards our ambitious goal of curing 100 diseases in just 10 years.

We have worked with this company over the last couple of years in our Rare Disease Day events and really admire their involvement in the community. They also just won not only the Biotech Innovation category of the 2016 Fierce Innovation Awards: Life Sciences Edition, but also Best in Show: Best New Product or Service! Congratulations Recursion!

They are dedicated to discovering new therapies for rare disease. The company wanted the installation to inspire and motivate their employees. They can see these sweet kiddos of ours and know why they are doing what they are doing everyday at work! This will be a permanent gallery until the company decides to change the decor. I am excited to share who they chose to be in the gallery when it is up! It is going to be amazing, stay tuned!

AOA at Global Genes Summit 2016

Aware of Angels was so honored to have portraits on display this year at the annual Global Genes Advocacy Summit. I was able to bring 12 of my Angels with me and the photos were a larger than life 48″x48″. I honestly was so excited (and a bit emotional:) to have them on display, raising awareness for these beautiful children and their rare diagnoses has been a goal since day 1. What a great opportunity this was to get them in front of hundreds of people.

I was also able to network with amazing people and connect with great organizations like the Mauli Ola Foundation http://www.mauliola.org/   Rare Science http://www.rarescience.org/rare-bear-program/  and Little Miss Hannah Foundation  http://littlemisshannah.org/ In a special collaboration with Rare Science, all of our Angels were sent an invitation to participate in the RARE bear army. I brought one home for my RARE Angel and several more of our Angels have been receiving theirs in the mail. This organization is dedicated to finding cures for rare disease. If you haven’t found them all ready look them up!

The Summit experience was very educational and I had an amazing time with some of my best rare friends! If you have the opportunity I recommend going. Until next time! Thank you so much Global Genes! https://globalgenes.org/
