What if we could end chronic disease and improve fertility? What if we could effectively detox our lives? Everyday environmental exposures may exacerbate the risk of developing a chronic disease to a greater degree than genetics alone.i What if there is an easy way to track and reduce these chemical exposures? Million Marker utilizes chemical metabolites and personal exposure analysis to allow individuals to measure and track their own exposure to toxic environmental chemicals. Our vision is to discover over a million biomarkers of exposure. We believe these “Million Markers” will inform and improve individual health and advance precision medicine. We aim to achieve this goal by selling direct-to-consumer testing kits, building the world’s most comprehensive chemical metabolite database... [Read More]
A Crowd Note modifies the typical convertible note so that the crowd does not automatically convert to equity shareholders on the next financing and remain off the issuer’s capitalization table, but the crowd will still participate in any exit as if they had converted to equity. If there is no future financing, the holders of the Crowd Note still have upside, but could miss out significantly.

Johanna Rochester, PhD
Chief Scientist Officer
Jo has spent the last decade studying how environmental stressors affect hormones and health. She was on the front lines of endocrine disruption research, especially in relation to human exposures and health effects. She has published several scoping and systematic reviews, including a pivotal one on BPA and human health. This review has been cited over 1,000 times, greatly furthering epidemiological BPA research, and was used as the basis for regulation of BPA under California’s Proposition 65. Jo holds an MS and PhD from the University of California, Davis, and did her postdoctoral research at the University of Colorado, Boulder. She then worked at TEDX, The Endocrine Disruption Exchange, the foremost non-profit in endocrine disruption research and science translation.
