“Innovation is the key driver to discover new and innovative treatments and preventive measures in the healthcare sector. In order to ensure a constant innovation in R&D and human longevity within the healthcare environment, biodiversity and genetic heritage is of utmost importance – now and in the future. Therefore, the work of I-ARKS as the first worldwide start-up and innovation platform is very relevant to make an exportable and high quality back-up of animal life on earth”

“Genetic heritage and nature’s health are important aspects of our ecosystem and therefore of our everyday life. Humanity should preserve the genetic heritage on this planet for the well-being of this and all future generations. I-ARKS and its network of experts are in that essential.”
