“Exact Sciences is well known for its Cologuard test, which lets people test for colon cancer at home without a colonoscopy, but its work has grown to include other products and research to advance early cancer detection more broadly,” said Tom Still, president of the Wisconsin Technology Council, who will moderate. “It’s not only a stellar Wisconsin business story, but an example of how science is making people’s lives better.”

This luncheon is sponsored by the Dane County Regional Airport.
