Salt Lake, UT / PRWeb / May 8, 2023 – Bryan Warf, PhD has joined the Center for Genomic Interpretation (CGI) as the 501(c)(3) nonprofit’s Senior Director of Scientific Affairs. Dr. Warf brings almost two decades of clinical science experience and expertise to CGI. He will be supporting CGI’s TestWisely and ELEVATEGENETICS initiatives that focus on quality driving programs that encompass germline (inherited) genetics, genomics and precision medicine. These programs help commercial health insurance payers, pharmaceutical companies, clinicians and patients to identify the most accurate and reliable laboratories and tests.
“I know Dr. Warf well and have always been impressed by his commitment to the highest standards in clinical science. I’m excited to see where his leadership takes us,” notes Dr. Julie Eggington, CGI’s CEO and co-founder. “Dr. Warf’s expertise in diagnostic test development, test validation, and Next-Generation Sequencing further strengthens CGI’s ability to meet the growing desire by stakeholders to ensure that plan members are benefiting from the precision medicine era, and are not being harmed by misguided care pathways resulting from inaccurate diagnostic testing.”
“I feel very strongly that all patients deserve accurate results when they order a genetic test. After spending years in the genetic testing industry, I have seen that CGI’s mission to promote more accurate genetic testing is more important than ever,” said Dr. Warf when asked why he chose to share his expertise with CGI.
