“We are at a critical juncture in our journey to reshape women’s health diagnostics,” said Dr. Tadimety. “With support from firms like Alumni Ventures, we can accelerate our clinical pilot testing and scale our technology to meet the urgent needs of patients.”

Nanopath has developed a groundbreaking technology platform that enables rapid, amplification-free detection of DNAs or RNAs, delivering results in under 15 minutes. This innovation allows for immediate, actionable health insights during a single office visit, which is crucial for conditions commonly affecting women, such as urinary tract infections, STIs, and vaginitis.

AV’s investment in Nanopath was sponsored by Green D Ventures, the firm’s VC fund for the Dartmouth community. The Green D team built a strong relationship with Dr. Tadimety and Nanopath Co-Founder, President, and CTO Dr. Alison Burklund, who began developing Nanopath’s technology while earning their PhDs from Dartmouth’s Thayer School of Engineering.

“Nanopath represents exactly the kind of disruptive innovation we aim to support,” said AV Founder and CEO Mike Collins, who hosted the conversation with Tadimety on AV’s Tech Optimist podcast. “Their innovative technology can significantly improve the standard of care in women’s health diagnostics.”

The company aims to improve the health of women by providing granular and clinically actionable information within a single office visit.
