Precision Medical Reporting Seminar
Atul Butte, MD, PhD will present a Precision Medical Reporting seminar entitled: "Transforming 300 Billion Points of Data into Diagnostics, Therapeutics, and New Insights Across Diseases," at 12:00 noon on Parnassus Campus, HSW 303. View the event flyer
Atul is Chief of the Division of Systems Medicine and Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Medicine, and by courtesy, Computer Science, at Stanford University and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital. He trained in Computer Science at Brown University, worked as a software engineer at Apple and Microsoft, received his MD at Brown University, trained in Pediatrics and Pediatric Endocrinology at Children's Hospital Boston, then received his PhD in Health Sciences and Technology from Harvard Medical School and MIT. His laboratory at Stanford builds and applies tools that convert more than 300 billion points of molecular, clinical, and epidemiological data measured by researchers and clinicians over the past decade into diagnostics, therapeutics, and new insights into disease. The Butte lab has developed bioinformatics methods to take genomic, genetic, and phenotypic data from multiple sources and diseases, and reason over these data to create novel diagnostics, therapeutics, and discover novel molecular mechanisms of disease. The work on cancer drug discovery has been published in PNAS (2000), on type 2 diabetes published in PNAS (2003), on fat cell formation published in Nature Cell Biology (2005), on obesity in Bioinformatics (2007), and in transplantation published in PNAS (2009).
