“The single greatest impact of precision medicine-based efforts is the improvement of patient survival outcomes through targeted therapeutic intervention.   This means that we are moving away from current clinical diagnostic methods, such as histology, to treat patients. Bench biology takes time; robust scientific experimentation takes even longer.

We also need to balance what is affordable to the patient and if the diagnostic tests present significantly improved and definitive methods of treatment decision over current clinical practices. Our motivation is passion for our work and patients.   When your focus is grounded on quality work, you will do everything to maintain those high standards.”
