A Powerhouse Partnership
Led by two internationally recognized leaders – trailblazing oncologist and biomedical entrepreneur David Agus, M.D., and world-leading optical and imaging researcher Scott Fraser, Ph.D. – the USC-Olympus partnership is “redefining what’s possible” through the development of new technologies to enable 3D and 4D imaging of single cells, organoids, and tumor ecosystems.
"Cancer medicine is at a crossroads. Genetic research has shown that hundreds of genes are involved, making it difficult to envision how genetic approaches and standard treatments will cure cancer. Because of this, USC and Olympus have assembled a powerful team of clinicians and imaging technologies to advance diagnostic capabilities toward precision medicine." ~ David Agus, M.D.
Through the study of cancer at the cellular level – how and why it grows and its impact on the body – and with the imaging technology to do so, Olympus and the team at the Ellison Institute are quite literally changing the way we treat cancer.
Our Part in Precision Medicine
As a global medical device company and leader in the life sciences space, Olympus provides a range of tools that assist in cancer diagnosis, analysis, and treatment. Cancer is a complex disease and rarely are tumors exactly alike. With our technologies, doctors and researchers have the ability to study cancer and the effectiveness of anti-cancer compounds for individual patients, a key element of precision medicine.
"Olympus is honored to provide the optical tools used to capture the breadth of what's happening in patients and transforming cancer medicine. Our deep experience and capabilities in both microscopy and medical technology businesses position us to lead the charge in the fight against cancer. We are excited to partner in the co-development of technology with the hope of translating these innovations to healthier, safer, and more fulfilling lives for people around the world." ~ Julien Sauvagnargues, President of Olympus Corporation of Americas
