About Our Organization: 

The concept of MolecularMD grew out of a discussion with Oregon Health Science University (OHSU) clinical investigators, where the critical needs of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) patients were revealed. These patients often develop a wide range of genetic aberrations during the progression of their disease. Because of this, they require accurate and reliable molecular diagnosis to tailor their therapy and prolong their progression free survival.

MolecularMD provides innovative and reliable molecular diagnostics products and services to support clinical development, regulatory approval, and commercialization of targeted cancer therapies.
Together with our pharmaceutical clients, we aim to better understand the link between molecular response and improved survival. The Company’s ultimate goal is to become the leader in precise molecular assays for oncology and eventually, for all personalized medicine.

Here at MolecularMD, we value our people and we’re passionate about our work. Our core values consist of:

1. Teamwork and Partnership
2. Innovation
