Todd Druley MD brings highly relevant clinical and business expertise to the planning, development, and commercialization of ANGLE’s diagnostics offerings through its clinical laboratories, regulatory filings, and pharma services.

Most recently, Dr. Druley held the position of Chief Medical Officer at ArcherDX, Inc., a genomic analysis company focused on precision oncology, where he established and grew its medical team before the Company was acquired by Invitae Corp. for up to US$1.4 billion in October 2020. During his tenure, he built an international team that successfully established new translational applications for ArcherDX assays and, in particular, its “Personalized Cancer Monitoring” assay, which is a patient-specific, bespoke assay for detecting 50 cancer-specific mutations from cell-free DNA in blood.

Dr. Druley brings a wealth of experience including 15 years at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, USA where he has published more than 60 peer-reviewed and invited manuscripts, many focusing on the methodology and application for identifying extremely rare mutations in complex human samples. His clinical focus was in leukaemia and he patented and licensed technology for error-corrected next-generation sequencing applicable for quantitative clonal haematopoiesis and molecular residual disease detection.

As Chief Medical Officer, Dr Druley will provide additional scientific, clinical and medical direction for ANGLE’s product development and will work with customers, collaborators and thought leaders in the liquid biopsy space to increase awareness and applications of the Parsortix® system. Dr Druley will also bring clinical and business perspectives to the planning, development, and commercialisation of ANGLE’s diagnostic offerings through its clinical laboratories, regulatory cleared products and pharma services.

ANGLE Founder and Chief Executive, Andrew Newland, commented:

“We are delighted to welcome Todd to ANGLE and to the leadership team. We are looking forward to drawing on his deep expertise in both research and commercial settings as we develop our products and pharma services and work towards the launch of our first laboratory developed test and the future expansion of the clinical market for the Parsortix system.”

Dr. Todd Druley, Chief Medical Officer, ANGLE, added:

“I am extremely excited to join ANGLE as I believe the Company’s patented technology has the potential to improve outcomes for cancer patients worldwide. I look forward to progressing ANGLE’s strategy to demonstrate the high medical value of this leading liquid biopsy solution. I am confident that my clinical and industry experience will help to guide the clinical application and future regulatory approvals for the Parsortix system.”
