Mary Norton, PQF president, stressed the value of cell-free DNA tests for screening, particularly for Down syndrome, but she added that many of the caveats with respect to testing were not publicized by labs eager to market their products.
Trovagene's vision for the broad applications of its liquid biopsy platform in the treatment of cancer patients and the Company's commitment to innovative cell-free DNA technologies were key factors in my decision to be involved in the Trovagene Research Institute after serving on the Company's Scientific Advisory Board for the past year," said Dr.
