Speaker Profile

Ph.D., Professor and Chair, Department of Integrative Translational Sciences, City of Hope

David W. Craig is an internationally recognized leader in developing and applying novel bioinformatics and genomics tools as well as in translating genomic discoveries from bench to bedside. Craig leads an integrative translational sciences department at City of Hope comprehensive cancer center that focuses on precision measurement, data science and diversity. His team seeks to further improve both translational outcomes as well as the science underpinning the use of precision medicine.Craig collaborates with regulatory agencies, industry partners, researchers and health care professionals to integrate scientific findings and translate potentially practice-changing discoveries into improved patient care and human health. He has spearheaded collaborative computational and data science efforts within large and small research consortiums, including the 1000 Genomes Project and the Bipolar Genome Study. His exceptional expertise has resulted in more than 200 publications, four patents and two founded companies.

AI-Driven Individualized Analysis of Spatial Transcriptomics
Novel methods in spatial transcriptomics methods offer deep insights into disease biology, advancing the field beyond single-cell genomics to incorporate the spatial context. Craig describes use of AI, deep learning and graph-based networks to merge histology and genomic sequencing, enhancing understanding of tumor biology and guiding analysis for broader research.
