Rolle, September 1, 2021 – SOPHiA GENETICS, a world leader in data-driven medicine, today announced the opening of new offices in Rolle (VD). These new facilities will allow the growing company to expand its capacity to accommodate a new office space and a new R&D laboratory.
SOPHiA GENETICS, a flagship company in Lake Geneva’s Health Valley, was founded in 2011 at the EPFL Innovation Park in Lausanne, Switzerland. Throughout the company’s expansion, it opened its own offices in Saint-Sulpice (Switzerland) in 2014, as well as a laboratory on the Biotech Campus in Geneva. As the company continued to grow, it opened an R&D center in the French Basque Country and a U.S. headquarters in Boston. SOPHiA GENETICS now employs more than 450 people, including roughly 230 in Switzerland.
SOPHIA GENETICS will now take over new premises in Rolle, offering additional office space and a new R&D laboratory. The infrastructure of these new facilities is specially designed to accommodate various requirements from Experimental Quality Check to Supply Chain and more, offering a tailor-made environment to meet the company’s R&D activities.
Jurgi Camblong, CEO and Founder of SOPHiA GENETICS, is delighted with the opening of these new Swiss offices: “We have doubled our workforce in less than two years, so it was important for us to have infrastructures adapted to our needs. The collaboration with the State of Vaud throughout the process was very much appreciated; I would like to thank the canton for its support from the beginning. It has become a valuable partner in managing our growth.”
