“Our new headquarters is expected to enable Personalis to continue our growth as we look to further expand our product offerings and strengthen our position in the cancer diagnostics market,” said John West, Chief Executive Officer. “As we’ve experienced so far, the San Francisco Bay Area has a deep pool of talent and we plan to continue to recruit top scientific, clinical and commercial professionals with the skill sets necessary to achieve our business goals and support our many initiatives.”
