Andre Goy, MD, MS chairman, director, and chief of the Lymphoma Division at the John Theurer Cancer Center, discusses the impact of Roche’s recent acquisition of the molecular testing company Foundation Medicine.

One of the major benefits of this collaboration is its potential to further innovation, says Goy. By joining together, Roche and Foundation Medicine can push forward with the development of new diagnostics technology, which Goy predicts will either be naked DNA or circulating tumor cell (CTC) assays.

Goy says both of these technologies make it significantly easier to diagnosis new cancers, identify reoccurring cancers, and better understand responses while patients receive treatment, all without using invasive techniques.
