A true innovator with a passion for taking care of patients, Dr. Lincoln Nadauld has spent his career working with DNA sequencing to research, discover and implement novel treatments that improve healthcare outcomes for patients with cancer.

Lab of the future

Myriad Genetics has created a state-of-the art Lab of the Future to analyze genetic test results and deliver more timely, accurate results to healthcare providers and patients. This 13,000 square-foot facility, which processes clinical samples, is now one of the most advanced and genome centers in the world, resulting from eight years of research, engineering, construction, and optimization. The lab’s advanced robotics and instrumentation were customized by Myriad engineers — processing thousands of clinical samples every day.

A typical running work cell is made up of 300 instruments and 500 software programs. Automated safeguards and redundancies are built into the system to prevent delays in delivering information to patients and providers. The facility is equipped with automated liquid handling and waste treatment capabilities which reduce plastic waste and create a more environmentally sustainable lab.

Walter Gilbert Research and Innovation Center

Myriad Genetics is expanding its lab of the future in South San Francisco to the new Nexus on Grand biotech center slated for completion next year. The new Myriad facility will be named the “Walter Gilbert Research and Innovation Center” in recognition of Dr. Gilbert’s pioneering scientific work in precision medicine. Dr. Gilbert is a Myriad co-founder and retired board member who won the Nobel Prize for contributions to the development of DNA sequencing.

The new lab incorporates advanced robotics, data analytics and instrumentation customized to process clinical samples and deliver timely results. Myriad plans to extend these capabilities and make additional investments in its Salt Lake City and Mason, OH labs.
