NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Personalis has formed a UK subsidiary, Personalis UK Limited, to serve its customers in Europe.
Menlo Park, Calif.-based Personalis provides researchers and clinicians human DNA sequencing and interpretation services.
The company also announced that it has appointed Mark Dronsfield to the post of director of European sales. He joins the company from RainDance Technologies, where he served as head of commercial operations in Europe, and has previously held commercial operations positions in Europe for Illumina, Affymetrix, and Life Technologies.
Personalis plans to initially build out its commercial team in the UK, but will also build services infrastructure as the customers' needs require.
"Given the expanding research and clinical demands for large-scale exome and genome analysis, we felt it was important to augment our presence in the European markets," said Personalis CEO John West in a statement. "We wanted to be prepared to build infrastructure on both the commercial and operational sides, so we are best able to address the needs of researchers and clinicians."
