Session Chair Profile

Ph.D., Professor & Chair, Stanford Center of Genomics & Personalized Medicine

Michael Snyder is the Stanford Ascherman Professor and Chair of Genetics and the Director of the Center of Genomics and Personalized Medicine. Dr. Snyder received his Ph.D. training at the California Institute of Technology and carried out postdoctoral training at Stanford University. He is a leader in the field of functional genomics and proteomics. His laboratory study was the first to perform a large-scale functional genomics project in any organism, and currently carries out a variety of projects in the areas of genomics and proteomics both in yeast and humans. These include the large-scale analysis of proteins using protein microarrays and the global mapping of the binding sites of chromosomal proteins. His laboratory built the first proteome chip for any organism and the first high resolution tiling array for the entire human genome.

 Session Abstract – PMWC 2020 Silicon Valley

New technologies let you measure thousands of health parameters that can be collected in a proactive healthcare system. Focusing on comprehensive health data early on can keep individuals healthy. To achieve this we need to establish the baseline for each individual which is a prerequisite for precision health. This session will focus on making precision medicine mainstream via managing and utilizing big data and genome sequence information.
