Gates, Milner Back Cancer-Genetics Startup

Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bill Gates and Russian billionaire Yuri Milner invested in genetics startup Foundation Medicine Inc., joining prior backers including Google Ventures and Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers.

Gates and Milner helped Foundation raise an additional $13.5 million in an expansion of its Series B financing, bringing the total raised in the round to $56 million, the Cambridge, Massachusetts-based company said today in a statement. Evan Jones, co-founder of Digene Corp., participated in the financing and will join Foundation’s board.
