Caris Life Sciences: Milan Radovich

Caris Life Sciences said this week that Milan Radovich has joined the firm as chief precision medicine officer. In this role, Radovich will lead Caris' biomarker and drug intelligence teams, aiming to develop novel signatures and drug targets. Before joining Caris, Radovich was an associate professor at the Indiana University School of Medicine, vice president for oncology genomics at Indiana University Health, and co-director of the IU Health Precision Genomics Program. As a National Cancer Institute-funded investigator, his research focused on the use of genomics in translational oncology, particularly on the use of genomics in clinical studies, genomically informed drug combinations, circulating biomarkers for cancer detection, and creating novel bioinformatic pipelines for cancer genome analyses.
