FRIENDSWOOD, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
Castle Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: CSTL), a company improving health through innovative tests that guide patient care, today announced that the Company’s medical director, Matthew Goldberg, M.D., F.A.A.D., board-certified dermatologist and dermatopathologist, will present at the Precision Medicine World Conference (PMWC®) 2023, being held Jan. 25-27 in Santa Clara, California.
Dr. Goldberg’s presentation, titled “Using Molecular Diagnostics to Inform Cancer Management Decisions,” will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 25, at 2:30 p.m. Pacific time as part of Track 3: Diagnostics and Molecular Profiling in the Clinic. Dr. Goldberg will highlight several tests within Castle’s skin cancer and gastroenterology portfolios, including DecisionDx®-Melanoma, DecisionDx®-SCC and the TissueCypher® Barrett’s Esophagus test, and demonstrate how the personalized information the tests provide can help clinicians make more informed treatment decisions in the care of their patients to potentially improve patient outcomes.
“Castle Biosciences is a leading company in the precision medicine space that is committed to transforming disease management for skin cancers and Barrett’s esophagus,” said Dr. Goldberg. “By focusing on disease states with significant unmet clinical need, we leverage our innovative in-house testing platforms to provide meaningful improvements to diagnostic or risk stratification approaches across the various disease states where we offer molecular testing.
“While there is much discussion about the promise of personalized medicine, Castle’s tests have the potential to improve patient outcomes and reduce costs to the healthcare system. I am looking forward to sharing concrete examples during my discussion of how molecular testing technologies can be clinically accessed for the benefit of patient care today.”
Dr. Goldberg has served as Castle’s medical director since 2020 and supports Castle’s commercialized and pipeline tests. He graduated summa cum laude from Princeton University and received his medical degree from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
