Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Department of Medicine, Division of Hematology / Oncology, University of California San Francisco

Dr. Ted Goldstein’s lab at the Bakar Institute of Computational Health Sciences at UCSF applies deep learning to translational medicine of genomics, cancer diagnosis, therapy selection, and development of new targeted and cell-based therapies. He is a former Silicon Valley executive turned cancer researcher. After shipping iPhone, he recognized that the potential medical advances that are enabled by the relentless improvements in genomic sequencing and high throughput biology would require equally tremendous advances in bioinformatics. So he returned to UC Santa Cruz to obtain a Ph.D.in Bioinformatics and Biomolecular Engineering.
