Speaker Profile

M.D., Ph.D., Professor & Chief, Genomic Medicine, UC Davis

Dr. Suma Shankar is a Professor in the Departments of Pediatrics and Ophthalmology and is Chief of Genomic Medicine at UC Davis. She is the Director of Precision Genomic Program and holds the Albert Rowe Endowed Chair of Genetics II. She graduated from Bangalore Medical College, India and has a PhD from UIowa. She is board certified in Medical Genetics from the American College of Medical Genetics & Genomics. She initiated the UC Davis Precision Genomics program to provide personalized health care to all in an equitable manner using state-of-the-art whole genome sequencing to determine the underlying genetic etiology in individuals with nonverbal autism/ neurodevelopmental disorders and in those going through “Diagnostic Odysseys.” Additionally, in collaboration with the Mouse Biology Program at UC Davis, she has initiated several small animal models resulting in new gene discovery, proving pathogenicity of several “variants of uncertain significance” and provided models for functional studies and translational research.
