New Data Highlighting Foundation Medicine's Second Clinical Product to be Presented at American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Foundation Medicine, Inc. (NASDAQ: FMI) today announced that new clinical data highlighting the company's second clinical product, a fully informative genomic profile for hematologic malignancies being developed in collaboration with Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, will be presented at the 55th American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition taking place December 7-10, 2013 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.

"We are making progress toward the introduction of our second clinical product, FoundationOne™ Heme, by early 2014 and look forward to sharing initial data with the hematology community at this year's ASH meeting," stated Vincent Miller, M.D., chief medical officer of Foundation Medicine.
