Speaker Profile

MD, PhD, CMO, Velsera

Dr. Nagarajan has been a pioneer in genomics and informatics for 20+ years. He started at Washington University, the first CAPCLIA laboratory for clinical NGS, and where he facilitated clinical and translational research by integrating EHR, clinical trials, patient registry, biospecimen, and genomics data and by supporting complex multimodal analyses across these data types. As the Founder and President of Pierian, he built the Clinical Genomics Workspace (CGW), an endtoend disease, assay and instrument agnostic informatics solution used to process clinical NGS cases. At Velsera, Dr. Nagarajan leads the Knowledgebase team, which is responsible for curated clinical content that supports tertiary analysis in the CGW, and is responsible for regulatory submissions and for incubating and developing technology solutions to extend Velseras reach.

Optimizing Clinical Genomics with Velsera KB
The Velsera Knowledgebase (KB) streamlines the interpretation of clinical genomic test results, sensitively identifying important biomarkers and highlighting associated therapy options for comprehensive. In this session, we describe our practices for maintaining up-to-date genomic knowledge for solid tumors and hematological cancers and present approaches for benchmarking the KB’s performance, including against public databases, other curated knowledge sources, and real-world assessments by clinical molecular laboratories. We also showcase the adaptive learning capabilities of Velsera’s Clinical Genomics Workspace, which eliminates rework on recurrent biomarkers for faster sign out over time.

Clinical Dx Showcase:

Velsera connects healthcare and life sciences to reveal the true promise of precision medicine—a continuous flow of knowledge between researchers, scientists and clinicians around the world, creating insights that radically improve human health.
