What We Offer

  1. Trial Expertise
    We sit at an intersection of medicine and biopharmaceutical research, combining our talented scientific team, more than 120,000 sequenced patient samples, and over 30 biopharmaceutical partners.
  2. Trial Design
    Utilize more than 120,000 patient genomic profiles in the FoundationCore™ knowledgebase to define biomarker criteria, map geographic ordering patterns and select sites with the highest testing volumes.
  3. Screening for Enrollment

Enrollment Services

Current clinical trial design and recruitment strategies are unsustainable in a molecularly-driven era. Patient populations are narrowly defined and widely distributed — not just at academic centers. Foundation Medicine has the tools to fill trials in the molecularly-driven age. For each trial, we help find the right patient.

Precision Enrollment

Our Precision Enrollment program identifies patients with rare or specific biomarkers and matches them with sponsor trials using the FoundationSmartTrials engine. In addition to efficient patient matching, the Precision Enrollment program raises awareness in the community with respect to clinical trials and evolving science; which further amplifies participation. Clinical research sponsors gain insight into standard of care, prevalence trends, and trial expansion opportunities.

HOW IT WORKS

  1. Gather Insights
    Hundreds of new genomic profiles are added to our FoundationCore knowledgebase per week.
  2. Match Patients
    We identify patient profiles with rare findings, match them to available trials, and place them into queue for outreach.
  3. Precision Outreach
    Our medical team of oncologists reaches out to the ordering physician and provides clinical trial options.
  4. Determine Interest
    The physician determines the level of interest and reaches out to the clinical trial sponsor to pursue enrollment.
  5. Begin Enrollment
    The sponsor provides the physician with enrollment options for their patient.

Recruiter

Our Recruiter tool is optimized for early-stage trials or trials with broader target profiles. This service identifies qualified patients for potential enrollment at the same institution where they are being treated and provides these results in an automated report delivered weekly.

Just-in-Time Trial Networks

Our Just-In-Time Trial Access solution, powered by the Precision Enrollment program, provides instant activation of sponsor trial sites closest to identified patients. We partner with service providers who can open sites as soon as a patient is identified by the Precision Enrollment program, reducing costs for the sponsor and speeding up enrollment rates and timing.
