Ph.D., Head of Genome Informatics, Regeneron Genetics Center
Dr. Reid is the head of genome informatics at the Regeneron Genetics Center where he leads a team developing and applying novel large-scale computational analysis tools, systems, and methods to produce and analyze large genomic data sets with the goal of making precision medicine a reality. His primary focus is on maximizing the impact that the integration of EHR-derived phenotypes and genomic data can have in providing biological insights to drive drug discovery and improve patient outcomes. Dr. Reid has worked in all aspects of large-scale genomic sequence data production and analysis, and using his background in computational physics, has been an evangelist for cloud computing in genomics and the thoughtful application of data science techniques to next-generation sequencing problems. Dr. Reid received his Ph.D. in physics from The University of Washington and his Bachelor’s degree from Harvey Mudd College. He lives in Stamford, Connecticut with his husband Jim and three cats Sabrina, Lyndon, and Emile.
Session Abstract – PMWC 2019 Silicon Valley
Session Synopsis: AI methods promise to revolutionize the way we approach medicine, by building and training models that make accurate predictions. But the application of AI in actual biomedical contexts comes with distinct challenges. This session features speakers in the forefront of real-life AI applications, who will discuss challenges such as how to reach an interpretable/explainable AI model and how to apply AI in a regulated context.
