So I'm going to let both Milan and Brian. Use themselves. And then we're going to get started polo. Thank you for having us this morning. My name's meal and rod vich assistant, professor at Simon cancer center. Also, co director of the precision genomics program, and I'm Brian Schneider.

And so could you tell us little bit about your training, which degrees are how you got to this place. Yeah. Absolutely. So interestingly, I'm actually genomic scientists.
