TME Research Announce Plans to Commence a Remote Hereditary Breast Cancer Case Review Research Project with Invitae

TME Research today announced the launch of a study with Invitae Corporation, a genetic information company, aimed at understanding the impact of access to remote peer-to-peer case review for surgeons who lack local genetic counseling support. The objective of the project is to assess if such access alters the implementation of hereditary cancer risk assessment within specialty breast cancer practices.

“This innovative telemedicine project importantly expands the reach of specialized genetic counselors to help educate and guide breast cancer physicians on selecting genetic tests and navigating the results to create a personalized risk-based treatment plan for each patient they encounter.”
