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 2017 Silicon Valley
Session Synopsis: This session explores the essential role of population level data in achieving precision medicine. The panelists will discuss opportunities for integration and application of data from across the spectrum of health (e.g. social, environmental, molecular factors) to inform prediction of individual risk, guide tailored prevention strategies, and improve early screening and diagnostics.
