Speaker Profile

PhD, Professor of Human Genetics, U. of Utah

Biography
Dr. Yandell is a Professor of Human Genetics, founding Director of the Utah Center for Genetic Discovery, and Chief Data Strategist for the University of Utah Hospitals program for Personalized Health. As such, he lead the institution's efforts to improve patient care using Whole Genome Sequences (WGS) and Electronic Health Records (EHRs). These efforts have been widely supported by the NIH and the American Heart Association, and have resulted in innovative techniques and software, including Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications. Now, in collaboration with Rady Children's Institute for Genomic Medicine and Fabric Genomics, they have developed GEM1, the first AI-based tool with the complete suite of features required for rapid, scalable diagnosis of critically ill children in the NICU and PICU. GEM is now integral to genome-based diagnosis programs at the University of Utah, at Rady Children's Hospital, and at the Broad Institute.
