What excites me most about working at Exact Sciences? Solving hard problems with exceptional people. It’s incredibly energizing to know that our collective ability and experience is making a real difference in the early detection of cancer, a space in which few companies have been able to carve out a leadership position. I’m just as excited that we’re putting our skills and know-how to work bringing other products to market where we can make a similar difference.
The mission we’ve outlined and the challenges in front of us put Exact Sciences in a unique leadership position to help win the war on cancer through early detection.
