The new laboratory space will help to expand testing capacity of the company’s recently FDA-approved FoundationOne Liquid CDx liquid biopsy test. Additionally, with Foundation Medicine’s acquisition of Lexent Bio* in June, the new space will allow for increased research and development of low-pass whole genome sequencing and DNA methylation analysis. The site hosts the following teams - Laboratory Operations, Facilities, Technology, TOCR, Research and Development (Early Research and Assay Development), Medical, and Legal teams. Client Services and other teams will be there as well soon.
“This state-of-the-art facility provides the opportunity to further expand our R&D and laboratory operations and supports our focus on advancing personalized medicine for patients,” said Foundation Medicine’s Chief Scientific Officer Priti Hegde, Ph.D. “The San Diego region is home to more than 1,200 life sciences companies—we’re excited to embed ourselves in this burgeoning community, deepen our local partnerships and add this high-quality lab space to expand into new projects.”
Foundation Medicine’s labs in Cambridge; Research Triangle Park, North Carolina; and Penzberg, Germany will continue to analyze individual patients’ genomic profiles, using the company’s portfolio of genomic tests, to identify the molecular alterations in a patient's cancer and help physicians match them with relevant personalized treatment approaches, including targeted therapies, immunotherapies and clinical trial options.
Molecular Technologist: from Cambridge to San Diego
"What kept me coming back for three internships and eventually a full-time position was the leadership I found here. The high level of genuine support was something I hadn’t felt before. The way everyone approaches problem-solving and encourages out-of-the-box ideas is spectacular. Something about me that hasn’t changed since the first day I started at Foundation Medicine is the constant urge to challenge myself. Therefore, I’m extremely excited for my move to the new San Diego lab, as well as my new position as Molecular Technologist II"
