John studied at the University of London’s, Royal Veterinary College where he earned a degree in veterinary medicine and continued his education at Stanford University where he obtained a PhD in genetics. John is now a postdoc in the Euan Ashley lab at Stanford university and is interested in utilizing long read (nanopore) genome sequencing to improve the health of human and non-human patients.
Ultra-rapid Nanopore Genome Sequencing in a Critical Care Setting
Genetic disease is a major contributor to critical care hospitalizations. Early genetic diagnosis can guide clinical management, yet the turnaround time for whole genome diagnostic testing is commonly months. We aimed to reduce the turn-around time for whole genome sequencing diagnostic test to be hours enabling rapid clinical decision making required for critically ill patients.
