Mount Sinai

CPS Companion Diagnostic has established a genomics laboratory and bioinformatic services collaboration with one of the world’s leading genetics and genomic labs, SEMA4, a spinout of the Icahn Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology from the Mount Sinai Hospital System (the “SEMA4”) (click here). SEMA4 was created to help advance precision medicine with cutting-edge technologies and world-class computational and analytical resources. The collaboration is led by the CPS Companion Diagnostic’s Science Advisory Board, which includes several of the foremost cancer immunotherapy experts from The Tisch Cancer Institute and SEMA4.

The collaboration provides our pharmaceutical and biotech clients with a comprehensive suite of capabilities and services necessary for the development, validation and commercialization of immunotherapy response-predictive companion diagnostics:
