Who We Are

Our work offers more than information; it can inspire hope in patients, families, friends, physicians, and caregivers.

Through constant innovation, we can make breakthroughs to help achieve improved outcomes for more individuals living with cancer. That’s why we foster a collaborative culture that motivates us to do our best work and be a partner in every patient's journey.

Our approach combines genomic profile products and data services to generate insights that can help doctors match patients to more treatment options and help accelerate the development of new therapies.

In just a few years, that idea has evolved into best-in-class products and services that empower the work and research of physicians, researchers, and all those engaged in the fight against cancer around the globe.

To me, working at Foundation Medicine is more than a job, more than a career. It’s an opportunity to use my skills to improve another person’s life. My treatment included traditional chemotherapy, surgery, radiation, and a targeted drug based on my cancer’s specific characteristics, just like what we find for patients every day at Foundation Medicine.
