Our Story

We believe that the more we know about cancer’s molecular underpinnings, the faster we can transform cancer care for patients.

Who We Are

Shaping the Future of Cancer Care

We are committed to advancing patient care by offering a proven portfolio of comprehensive genomic profiling products that help physicians make more informed care decisions. 

Through constant innovation in molecular insights, we are dedicated to working with our partners to deliver breakthroughs that improve outcomes for more individuals living with cancer and bringing them to routine cancer care every day. 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 offers not just test results, but high quality insights that can help doctors match patients to more treatment options and help accelerate the development of new therapies.

Our History

Foundation Medicine began with an idea — to simplify the complex nature of cancer genomics, bringing cutting-edge science and technology to everyday cancer care. That idea has evolved into products and services that empower the work and research of physicians, researchers, and all those engaged in the fight against cancer. But our mission remains and continues to drive us forward in our long-standing commitment to deliver new breakthroughs that rapidly advance personalized medicine for people living with cancer around the world.
