“Appointing Dr. Reddy and his experience to our leadership team will be highly valuable to the evolution of the GPS Cancer initiative,” said Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, founder and CEO of NantHealth. “With extensive background in hematology, medical oncology and therapeutics research, Dr. Reddy will play a key role in helping NantHealth achieve victory in the war against cancer.”

Dr. Reddy joined NantHealth in December of 2016 as Senior Executive Director of Medical Affairs and prior to that position, he served as Chief Medical Officer at Caris Life Sciences. Over the course of his career, Dr. Reddy has produced over 100 abstracts at major medical conferences and over 30 peer-reviewed publications since 2014.
