Guardant Health is focused on conquering cancer by using its breakthrough blood-based assays, vast data sets, and advanced analytics. Using both molecular and digital tools, we are addressing challenges across the cancer care continuum. We have raised more than $200 million from leading venture capital firms. Our first product, the Guardant360 assay, came to market in 2014, and is now the most widely ordered comprehensive liquid biopsy commercially available. In 2016, we announced Project LUNAR, an effort to apply the Guardant Health technology platform to early detection, recurrence monitoring, and assessing minimal residual disease.
The primary role of a Genomics Specialist is to review Guardant360 reports with physicians and assist with the interpretation of the results. In addition, the Genomics Specialist is an adept communicator of the most current education materials supporting the clinical value of Guardant Health’s product(s). These materials include speaker slides, abstracts and publications. The Genomics Specialist will directly educate ordering physicians by reviewing their results and aiding in their interpretation, and will triage questions to the Medical Science Liaisons and Medical Directors, as appropriate.
The Genomics Specialist will be effective at translating data from research study findings and reviewing published articles in the next generation sequencing (NGS) arena. The Genomics Specialist does not make recommendations regarding clinical care decisions, but is facile with genomics-directed matched therapies and clinical trials.
