How do we close the gap between the knowledge of today and the possibilities of tomorrow?

We partner with leading research institutions to help them provide best-in-class care, advance clinical research, and run clinical trials.

Superior Clinical Care Through Better Insights


Molecular Tumor Boards

These virtual meetings feature discussions about select test reports, the genomic alterations identified, and related implications. Foundation Medicine’s scientific and medical experts and care teams from cancer centers across the country work collaboratively to address the most complex cases.

Better, More Efficient Clinical Trials

Foundation Medicine sits at a nexus of medicine and pharmaceutical research. We are adding hundreds of patient genomic profiles per week to our FoundationCore database (notably enriched for patients with rare findings) while simultaneously working with our biopharma partners to cull the most up-to-date clinical trial information. Together, we help institutions run trials faster and smarter, providing better access to treatment options for patients.

Just-In-Time Trial Networks

Too often, patients with rare findings are seen in settings where trials are not routinely considered. And even if they are, trial sites are frequently too far for matched patients to reach. Our just-in-time network allows trial site activation – with IRB approval – to be possible in less than a week.

Advanced Reporting

Once profiled, patients' genomic data become available in our custom reports. Test results are provided in a user-friendly interpretive report that highlights the genomic alterations present in the patient’s cancer and provides information about targeted therapies and clinical trials to help inform clinical decision making.
