Session Abstract – PMWC 2023 Silicon Valley
As Chief Scientific Officer for Clear Labs, I lead the vision and strategy for talented teams of dedicated scientists who make life healthier through the application of genomics and intelligent analytics. From a leadership perspective, I prioritize team culture and empower my team members to maximize their talents and push the bounds of what’s possible. As a scientist and researcher, I have deep insights into the world of health, biotechnology, and next-generation sequencing, and I continue to contribute to the world of academia as an adjunct faculty member at Rutgers University. I want to leave a legacy by raising the quality of life and health of the world’s population. Through my work at Clear Labs, we have made a huge impact on food safety. I aim to expand that impact by using my skills to improve clinical and pharmaceutical genomics and their effectiveness in public health.
