2015 was an exciting year for Insight Genetics with the formation of new partnerships, continued collaboration with existing partners, expansion of our leadership team, the launch of a CLIA-validated assay for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), presentation of new research findings on triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), and new funding to continue the advancement of the company’s TNBC and NSCLC programs.
