Session Chair Profile

Ph.D., SVP Population Genomics Health, Tempus Labs

Biography
Dr. Kathleen C. Barnes is a genetic epidemiologist with expertise in multiple complex lung and inflammatory diseases. For ~30 years her population-based studies have focused on ethnically diverse, family-based and independent populations across the Americas, summarized in >230 publications. She has led multiple international multi-omics projects and is a founding PI in the NHLBI Trans-Omics for Precision Medicine (TOPMed) Project. Originally at Johns Hopkins University (1993-2015) then the University of Colorado (2015-present), she has procured >150K biospecimens from her own research laboratory, and high-throughput, cutting edge multi-omics technologies. She is founding Director of the Colorado Center for Personalized Medicine, and transitioned as SVP of Population Genomics Health at Tempus Labs in 2021, with a goal of linking extensive electronic health record (EHR) data to ‘omics’ information to promote the development of predictive analytic tools, integrate these tools into routine health care, and expand prognostic and diagnostic capacity in health systems.
