• Caris Life Sciences to Present Research Supporting Clinical Utility of Caris Molecular Intelligence® at 2016 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium

    IRVING, Tex., Jan. 7, 2016 Caris Life Sciences®, a leading biotechnology company focused on fulfilling the promise of precision medicine, announces today that it will present four poster presentations at the 2016 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium from January 7-9, 2016 in San Francisco, Calif.

    Each of the four studies being presented utilizes Caris Molecular Intelligence®, the company’s panomic comprehensive, multiplatform tumor profiling service, to facilitate biomarker identification and molecular characterization of genitourinary cancers. Using Caris Molecular Intelligence, investigators were able to identify potentially overlapping and/or alternative therapeutic options, including immunotherapies and targeted therapies, for patients with different subtypes of genitourinary cancers.
