Colloquium: Snyder on how genomics and individualized data can make medicine “personal”

Dr. Michael Snyder (Huang Lab website)

This week the Biology Colloquium seminar series features Michael Snyder, a professor of Genetics at Stanford Medicine. Dr. Snyder studies the genetic variation, particularly in gene regulatory regions, that underlies health and disease traits — including measurements that can be taken from a personal activity tracker like a Fitbit or an an Apple watch. His seminar, presented with support of MARC and the Bridges to the Doctorate program, will be entitled "Transforming Healthcare: Big Data, Health and Reaching Underserved Populations"

Because CSUN has suspended large in-person meetings to help slow the transmission of the novel coronavirus, this week’s Colloquium will be presented by videoconference on the Zoom service. You can watch the presentation on Friday at 2pm via this meeting link, with passcode Biology490. (Following the link may prompt the installation of the Zoom app in order to display video.)
