    New data from the PROPHECY trial, published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, demonstrate that detection of AR-V7 in circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in blood is predictive of whether men with mCRPC have become resistant to androgen-receptor signaling (ARS) inhibitors and have a low chance of benefit from further ARS therapy.

    I have been working at Genomic Health full-time (More than 5 years)


    Genomic Health is a really great place to work. Everyone is aligned to the mission of providing cancer patients critical information to help make treatment decisions. The patients are always the focus of the business and discussions and it's really rewarding to be helping so many people!

    The company is also very interested in employee development and has put a lot of programs in place lately to help individuals broaden their skills.


    Genomic Health is evolving rapidly, so it's not the place for people that dont like change management.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Genomic Health (Redwood City, CA) in February 2013.


    I did a phone interview, came in for 2 rounds of face to fact interviews and had an offer a few days after final interview. I met with a lot of people for the onsite interviews but I saw the value in it because it allowed me to interview those who I potentially could be working with. It was a good experience
