Sargent and Aldredge will also help expand the company’s RNA platform to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) diagnostics, offering providers and patients a promising tool for predicting and monitoring therapeutic effectiveness.

“We are pleased to welcome Matt and Tyler to the Geneoscopy team at such a pivotal time for the company,” said Andrew Barnell, Geneoscopy’s co-founder and Chief Executive Officer. “Matt’s proven experience commercializing oncology diagnostic products and Tyler’s expertise in operational process and management will be critical as we accelerate toward bringing ColoSense to market and hit several key clinical and development milestones with IBD.” 

“As I step into this new role, I look forward to collaborating with our talented team and partners to realize the full potential of our innovative RNA technology and bring valuable solutions to patients and providers,” said Sargent. “With our focus on advancing ColoSense and expanding precision diagnostics for IBD, we are poised to make a meaningful impact in improving outcomes for the 60-70 million Americans suffering from GI diseases.” 

Sargent brings 20 years of experience leading high-performance commercial teams in the oncology space. Most recently, he served as Chief Business Officer at Harbinger Health, responsible for business development related to the company’s blood-based cancer early detection test. Before Harbinger Health, he was Vice President of Commercial Oncology at Hologic, responsible for sales, commercial strategy, and business development for the CLIA oncology diagnostics service business, following Hologic’s acquisition of Biotheranostics, where he served as Chief Commercial Officer.
