Learn how leading biomedical researchers are developing methods to bring about a next generation of medicine that leverages advances in diagnostics, wearables and digital health to enable new approaches to precision medicine and scientific wellness in this Research Computing Seminar Series event.
Moving from Precision Medicine to Next-Generation Healthcare
Presented by Joel Dudley, Associate Professor of Genetics and Genomic Sciences, Director of Biomedical Informatics at the Icahn School of Medicine, Mount Sinai
About the speaker
Joel Dudley is a recognized leader in applying biomedical Big Data to healthcare and drug discovery. His work is focused on developing and applying advanced computational methods to integrate the digital universe of information to build better predictive models of disease and drug response.
Dudley is associate professor of genetics and genomic sciences and director of biomedical informatics at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and directs the newly formed Institute for Next Generation Healthcare at Mount Sinai. He has served as co-founder and Director of Informatics at NuMedii, Inc., one of the first companies to apply Big Data to drug discovery.
Dudley has authored/co-authored more than 80 publications. His research has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Scientific American, Forbes, etc. and his recent work using a Big Data approach to identify sub-types of Type 2 diabetes was recently highlighted by NIH Director Francis Collins as a significant advance in precision medicine. He was named as one of the 100 most creative people in business by Fast Company magazine in 2014. He holds an MS and PhD in Biomedical Informatics from Stanford University School of Medicine.
