In June, the adult book group will meet to discuss Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup by John Carreyrou. This outstanding work of non-fiction is the investigation into the controversial Theranos Corporation, a company currently facing charges of fraud and embezzlement, not to mention, the inspiration behind the TV series, The Dropout. We will be joined remotely by a research specialist with over five years of experience in clinical assay development in a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLA) certified lab. She also developed an assay for a single copy detection of HIV which was copyrighted for licensing.
