Organizing and administering cancer panels comprised of world's most respected and renowned oncology experts

CANCER PANELS is a company focused on providing expert physician cancer panels (conferences) in a unique Zoom video forum 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 cancer panel held by Champions Oncology, Inc.

In 2012, Champions Oncology, Inc. decided to discontinue offering 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, at that time, decided to offer these panel services to cancer patients through a new company, CANCER PANELS. Dr. Sidransky is a consultant with CANCER PANELS, chairing and providing his expertise at all the panels.

Since 2004 Jim Martell has organized and administered all of the more than 100 cancer panels attended by world’s leading oncology experts.
