PCSIG Webinar On Demand

Transforming Healthcare Using Big Data and Remote Monitoring

PCSIG Webinar 2023_Snyder.png

Our present healthcare system focuses on treating people when they are ill rather than keeping them healthy. We have been using big data and remote monitoring approaches to monitor people while they are healthy to keep them that way and detect disease at its earliest moment presymptomatically. We use advanced multiomics technologies (genomics, immunomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, microbiomics) as well as wearables and microsampling for actively monitoring health. Following a group of 109 individuals for up to 13 years revealed numerous major health discoveries covering cardiovascular disease, oncology, metabolic health and infectious disease. We have also found that individuals have distinct aging patterns that can be measured in an actionable period of time. Finally, we have used wearable devices for early detection of infectious disease, including COVID-19 as well as microsampling for monitoring and improving lifestyle. We believe that advanced technologies have the potential to transform healthcare and keep people healthy.

Join Michael Snyder, Professor & Chair, Stanford University School of Medicine in this Free Webinar to discuss the use of big data and remote monitoring to transform healthcare today.

Moderated by Neil Spooner, Director, Spooner Bioanalytical Solutions and Co-Founder of the PCSIG,

Michael Snyder
Professor & Chair Stanford University School of Medicine

Michael Snyder is the Stanford Ascherman Professor and Chair of Genetics and the Director of the Center of Genomics and Personalized Medicine. He received his Ph.D. training at the California Institute of Technology and carried out postdoctoral training at Stanford University. Dr. Snyder has pioneered the use of “big data” and multiomics to advance scientific discovery and transform healthcare. His laboratory has invented many technologies that are widely used in medicine and research, including methods for characterizing genomes and their products (e.g., RNA-Seq, NGS paired end sequencing, ChIP-Chip and later Chip-Seq, protein arrays, machine learning for disease gene discovery, and wearables for monitoring personal health and exposures). His application of omics and wearables technologies to perform longitudinal profiling of people when they are healthy and ill is transforming medicine and healthcare. Indeed, his laboratory’s recent work to use smartwatches and wearables to detect illness, including infectious disease such as COVID-19, prior to symptom onset is being used by many thousands of people. He has helped colead many large scale projects including ENCODE, HMP, HuBMAP and HTAN. He has cofounded 16 biotechnologies companies, including Personalis, Qbio, January AI, Filtricine, RTHM, Marble Therapeutics and Iollo.
