Chirag Patel, PhD
Biomedical Data Scientist
Assistant Professor Harvard Medical School
Uncovering connections between the human environment, genes, and health
Dr. Patel is a biomedical scientist who received his doctorate in Biomedical informatics from Stanford University. Since then, Dr. Patel’s long-term research goal is to address problems in human health and disease by developing computational methods to reproducibly and efficiently reason over high-throughput data streams spanning molecules to populations. Patel's group aims to dissect inter-individual differences in human phenomes through strategies that integrate data sources which capture the comprehensive clinical experience (e.g., through the electronic medical record), the complex phenomena of environmental exposure (e.g., high-throughput measures of the exposome), and inherited genomic variation.
