ABOUT US

GET TO KNOW CND LIFE SCIENCES

Since our founding, CND Life Sciences has been on a mission to advance the care of patients who face the potential diagnosis of a neurodegenerative disease. With long careers in research and clinical care, our founders  set out to unlock  deeper stories within the skin by  detecting key pathological markers in the peripheral nervous system that had been previously out of reach.

Our Values

CND maintains core values that guide our work and mission every day.

  • Great science. It’s the foundation of everything we do.
  • Patients first. There is a patient hoping for answers behind every test we perform – we never forget that.
  • Clinician-minded. We are founded by physicians and dedicated to helping clinicians care for patients – we embrace this responsibility.
  • Quality core. We adhere to high laboratory standards and quality practices – it’s the only way to operate.
  • Always thinking. We are relentless in determining how we can innovate and do better – it’s just in our DNA.
  • Respect. We hold our employees, customers, partners, and suppliers in high regard – we succeed when we are aligned.

Vision

Using more convenient, minimally invasive techniques supported by strong evidence, we see the day when physicians can access objective pathological insights on underlying diseases processes – much earlier in disease progression – and apply those insights to generate better outcomes for patients.

Today we see opportunity literally beneath the surface of the skin. Tomorrow we will help physicians and patients detect and treat neurodegenerative diseases easier, safer, and more effective than ever before.

Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community (SRPMIC)

Among the many unique features of the CND headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona, is its location in The Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community (SRPMIC).

The SRPMIC encompasses 52,600 acres, with 19,000 acres of natural preserve. The SRPMIC is an independent tribe bounded by the cities of Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, and Fountain Hills. With two backgrounds and cultures, the Community is comprised of two Native American tribes; the Pima, “Akimel O’Odham” (River People) and the Maricopa, “Xalychidom Piipaash” (People who live toward the water). The majestic Red Mountain can be seen throughout the Community and represents the home of the Pima and Maricopa people. The SRPMIC operates as a full-service government and oversees departments, programs, projects, and facilities.

CND Life Sciences is proud to be located within this wonderful community and to continue to learn about the culture that surrounds our corporate headquarters.

For Clinicians: Request a Skin Biopsy Test Kit

Our suite of neurodiagnostic tests provides clinicians with objective pathological insights on diseases that are often difficult to diagnose. Using our free Skin Biopsy Test Kit, simply collect three small skin biopsies from your patient, send them to our CLIA-certified lab, and CND will provide important visual insights to support a diagnosis.
