Our mission is to develop highly accurate, easy to administer, non-invasive molecular diagnostic tests to reduce unnecessary and risky medical procedures and, thereby reduce cost to the healthcare system, while improving patient outcomes. Our initial focus will be confirmatory diagnostics, utilizing novel liquid biopsy technology, for use in conjunction with imaging to confirm initial diagnoses within certain oncology indications. In addition, we will be developing screening diagnostics as potential replacements for screening imaging procedures that do not meet the needs of patients, health care providers or payers. For some indications, we will also be pursuing the probability of recurrence of a specific cancer through the development of prognostics; or companion diagnostics that help a physician determine which therapy is the optimal treatment for the patient.

Top 5 Clean Energy Stocks To Own Right Now: Alphabet Inc.(GOOGL)
As our founders Larry and Sergey wrote in the original founders letter, “Google is not a conventional company. We do not intend to become one.” As part of that, they also explained that you could expect us to make “smaller bets in areas that might seem very speculative or even strange when compared to our current businesses.” From the start, the company has always strived to do more, and to do important and meaningful things with the resources we have. To help accelerate this, we announced plans in August 2015 to create a new public holding company, called Alphabet. Alphabet is a collection of businesses — the largest of which, of course, is Google. It also includes businesses that we combine as Other Bets and generally are pretty far afield of our main Internet products such as Verily, Calico, X, Nest, GV, Google Capital and Access/Google Fiber. Our Alphabet structure is about helping businesses within Alphabet prosper through strong leaders and independence. Advisors’ Opinion:
