Speaker Profile

PhD, Product Lead, Google

Biography
Andrew leads product development for the genomics team in Google Health. The genomics team develops methods that improve real-world applications in clinical genomics, population-level sequencing, drug discovery, and the combination of genomic and clinical data. Prior to Google, Andrew was Chief Scientific Officer at DNAnexus, where he supported many of the first large-scale genomics projects, such as the CHARGE Consortium, Regeneron-Gesinger and Regeneron-UKBiobank cohorts, the 3000 Rice Genomes Project, PrecisionFDA, and the St. Jude Pediatric Cancer Cloud. Andrew holds a PhD in Molecular Biology from Stanford University and a Bachelors degree in Physics from the University of Virginia.


Talk
As sequencing becomes more scalable and affordable, the ability to accurately phenotype large cohorts becomes increasingly important.This talk will explore how AI methods can solve this problem by using AI approaches on retinal images and spiromtery to discover new associates for glaucoma, COPD, and asthma. Additionaly, using mutli-modal LLMs to integrate phenotype information.
