Genomic Sequencing for Cancer

Precision medicine is a truly personalized approach to cancer care that focuses on matching each patient with the most effective therapy, based on the abnormalities within a patient’s tumor.  

To determine the genetic profile of a patient’s tumor and identify cancer-driving genes, our team of experts uses advanced genomic sequencing technology. We learn which specific genes are expressed in cancer cells and how a patient may respond to different therapies, so that we can select the most appropriate targeted treatment for the particular cancer.
