Frederick S. Jones, PhD
Head of Medical Scientific Affairs

Dr. Jones is the Head of Medical Scientific Affairs, where he leads a team to demonstrate the use and performance of diagnostic tests in real-world clinical settings and trials.

Fred has over 14 years of experience in the molecular diagnostics industry and was also a Professor at The Scripps Research Institute for 20 years, where he specialized in gene regulation and cellular mechanisms that control morphogenesis during embryonic development. He holds degrees from Yale and Rockefeller University, has co-authored over 100 publications, and has held several leadership positions in both academia and industry.

Fred is a liquid biopsy ambassador to the clinical world of physician-scientists; he deeply believes that biomarker testing at the right time can improve the care of or help cure cancer, and he spends his time spreading that message.

When he’s not knee-deep in clinical trials, you can find him sailing, surfing, camping, or raising his kids to think like scientists.
