Wharf to Provide Clinical Expertise on ELEVATEGENETICS services and Large Research Projects
Salt Lake, UT / PRWeb / May 8, 2023 – Bryan Warf, PhD has joined the Center for Genomic
Interpretation (CGI) as the 501(c)(3) nonprofit’s Senior Director of Scientific Affairs. Dr. Warf brings
almost two decades of clinical science experience and expertise to CGI. He will be supporting CGI’s
TestWisely and ELEVATEGENETICS initiatives that focus on quality driving programs that encompass
germline (inherited) genetics, genomics and precision medicine. These programs help commercial health
insurance payers, pharmaceutical companies, clinicians and patients to identify the most accurate and
reliable laboratories and tests.
“I know Dr. Warf well and have always been impressed by his commitment to the highest standards in
clinical science. I’m excited to see where his leadership takes us,” notes Dr. Julie Eggington, CGI’s CEO
and co-founder. “Dr. Warf’s expertise in diagnostic test development, test validation, and Next-Generation
Sequencing further strengthens CGI’s ability to meet the growing desire by stakeholders to ensure that
plan members are benefiting from the precision medicine era, and are not being harmed by misguided
care pathways resulting from inaccurate diagnostic testing.”
“I feel very strongly that all patients deserve accurate results when they order a genetic test. After spending
years in the genetic testing industry, I have seen that CGI’s mission to promote more accurate genetic testing is
more important than ever,” said Dr. Warf when asked why he chose to share his expertise with CGI.
For more information about CGI, see www.genomicinterpretation.org. CGI is offering several unique
ELEVATEGENETICS programs that establish meaningful and actionable pathways to improve
genetic/genomic testing, analysis and reporting. For payers, ELEVATEGENETICS metrics offer unique
evaluations when selecting and contracting with laboratories. For laboratories, these programs offer a
unique third-party review focusing on key aspects of the genetic/genomic testing process which can
dramatically improve the accuracy of test findings. For providers and consumers, CGI offers a number of resources to better understand the complex landscape of precision medicine.
