Imagine being able to detect cancer almost eight years before any physical symptoms occur. This may sound farfetched, then there’s the opportunity to intervene in a disease before its diagnosis.

“In medicine, physiology precedes anatomy,” Philip says. “You’ll get symptoms of pneumonia before it shows up on an X-ray. You could see changes that a breast is diseased before a mammogram shows a tumor the size of a pencil eraser.”
“If you could prevent something five to eight years earlier, why wouldn’t you?” he says.
