This led to the emergence of genetic testing as a tool that has saved millions of lives. Now, with Paul at the helm, Myriad Genetics aims to play as pivotal a role in the next 30 years of genetics and precision medicine as they did in the first 30, applying the power of data-driven genetic insights.
