Epidisease was founded in 2014 and is the result of the work and experience of promoters in the field of epigenetics.

The team of promoters took their first steps in creating Epidisease with a view to offering society a new service focused on the use of epigenetics in biomedical sciences.
The team was initially made up of José Luis García, Salvador Mena, and Lorena Peiró, who all obtained their doctorate degrees in science from the University of Valencia. After developing the concept of the project, the promoters decided to participate in the First National Contest for Young Entrepreneurs 2013, held by the Ministry of Health and Social Services through the Youth Institute (INJUVE). The Epidisease project was awarded the first prize in the health sector and received a grant of 25,000 Euros to found the company.

After receiving the award, the promoter team decided to integrate other founding members whose experience would contribute to the execution of the business project. At this point, Prof. Federico V. Pallardó (professor of physiology at the School of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Valencia). After negotiations with public institutions and receiving support from the scientific director of the Center for Biomedical Network Research on Rare Diseases (CIBERER), the Biomedical Research Institute INCLIVA, and the approval from the Executive Commission of the Center for Biomedical Network Research (CIBER-ISCIII), Epidisease was founded as a company on June 26th, 2014.
