Invitae genetic counselor Erynn Gordon on multi-gene testing for hereditary cancer syndromes

Erynn Gordon, genetic counselor at Invitae, explains how multi-gene panels have changed the landscape of genetic testing for hereditary cancer syndromes. Multi-gene panels enable healthcare providers to investigate syndromes at the same time, instead of taking several tests and waiting for the results each time. This means clinicians get answers more quickly and increases the likelihood of finding the causative gene.
