TumorGen, our Partners, and the Fight Agains Metastasis in the NEWS

TumorGen presents poster at AACR - abstract#1333 - 17-Apr-2023

Dr. Peter Teriete will be presenting the latest data from TumorGen at the Annual AACR meeting in Orlando, FL.

"The data Peter will be presenting illustrates a very clear path on how TumorGen's technology can be utilized to identify anti-metastatic therapeutic targets.  Identifying these previously unseen targets on metastatic cancer cell clusters (MCCCs) will lead to the development of new drugs than can prevent the spread of cancer! " says President and CEO Jeff Allen, PhD.

TumorGen has been selected to present our technology and business opportunity to a select group of local investors on 6-Feb-2020.  Dr. Peter Teriete will be presenting our vision on Fighting the Root Cause of Cancer and how we will change the way cancer is treated!

TumorGen welcomes Dr. Ezra Cohen to the board of medical and scientific advisors - October 10, 2017

Dr. Ezra Cohen, a board-certified oncologist and cancer researcher at UCSD's Moores Cancer Center here in La Jolla joined TumorGen MDx's board of medical and scientific advisors. Dr. Cohen, a highly regarded clinical oncologist, has a strong focus on developing novel therapies and understanding mechanisms of sensitivity or resistance; cancer screening; and using medication and other agents to delay or prevent cancer (chemoprevention). His mission synergies well with our vision at TumorGen MDx and we are excited to add Dr. Cohen to our strong team.
