Organizing and administering cancer panels attended by world leading oncology experts.

CANCER PANELS is a company focused on providing in-person expert physician conferences devoted solely to the individual cancer patient.

Jim Martell is the President and CEO of CANCER PANELS. In 2004, after his close friend and tennis partner was diagnosed with a highly metastatic and rare cancer, he met Dr. David Sidransky while searching for leading oncology experts and out-of-the-box thinkers. Since then Jim Martell worked and collaborated closely with Dr. Sidransky in the development of personalized expert cancer panels for cancer patients. In 2007 Jim Martell together with Dr. Sidransky co-founded Champions Oncology, Inc. Since that time Jim Martell has organized and administered every in-person cancer panel held by Champions Oncology, Inc.

In the summer of 2012 after Champions Oncology, Inc. decided to discontinue offering these in-person cancer panels in order to fully focus their efforts on the development and commercialization of the Champions TumorGraft, a unique method of implanting and growing a fragment of a patient’s live tumor in mice, Jim Martell decided to offer these services, through CANCER PANELS to cancer patients. Dr. Sidransky, among others, is a consultant with CANCER PANELS, chairing and providing his expertise at the panels.

Since 2004 Jim Martell has organized and administered every one of the more than 50 cancer panels attended by world’s leading oncology experts.
