Speaker Profile

Chief Science Officer, simplSEQ

Brandon Young has 20 years of experience utilizing technology to improve testing and detection of genetic variation in human diseases. He was one of the early laboratory pioneers in microarray and gene sequencing projects in startup companies and large academic institutions. Brandon has helped design, build and run labs for a number of prestigious centers throughout the US, including Scripps Florida, Human Longevity Institute (HLI), and Avera McKennan.

Clinical & Research Tools Showcase:

simplSEQ has developed a proprietary process that isolates and purifies nucleic acids from biological material including plasma samples. Our process is non-destructive, allowing for re-interrogation and multi-omic analysis from a single sample.

Democratizing Genomic Sequencing
By inventing a novel approach to sample preparation, simplSEQ makes NGS sample prep faster, less expensive with higher quality data than traditional methods. The presentation will include data and case studies illustrating how laboratories of all sizes and expertise levels will be able to perform genomic testing in-house.

 Session Abstract – PMWC 2022 Silicon Valley

Track 6, June 28-30

The PMWC 2022 Clinical & Research Tools Showcase will provide a 15-minute time slot for selected companies in this space. The Clinical & Research Tools is a showcase for innovative technologies that are used for the analysis of genetic variation and function, helping to advance breakthroughs in genetic health, rare disease conditions on individuals of all ages, complex diseases and cancer care. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) and microarray technologies empower rapidly evolving genomic revolution.
