"It’s thrilling to be part of a company from its early days and to witness a group of smart, passionate people bring a vision to reality, but it is a real privilege to be responsible for telling the world about it. The story of Oncotype DX and the power of personalized medicine is one that has captured a lot of attention. Our success in leading the clinical application of personalized medicine is a result of the commitment of the employees of Genomic Health who insisted on scientific and clinical rigor and on world-class customer support for physicians and patients. And it would not have happened if not for the brave heroes -- the breast, colon and prostate cancer patients -- whose stories shape, inform and inspire our work on a daily basis. And best of all, Genomic Health’s story has just begun!"
