Artificial Intelligence


I have over 25 years of experience, doing basic research, development, and manufacturing at Affymax Research Institute, Applied Biosystems, and Pacific Biosciences. My career has focused on developing technologies that advance biological research and inventing novel platforms. Currently, as the CSO and founder of Quantumcyte, my team is building a platform for personalized medicine. The platform uses Artificial Intelligence to evaluate a patient’s biopsy and identify high-value cells to interrogate for genetic analysis (DNA/RNA Sequencing). Then it correlates the spatial context of the biopsy with the genetic data to provide a precise diagnosis and treatment plan focused on the most aggressive and lethal cancer cells. These capabilities are unique to our platform and accomplished by using digital pathology, advanced ink-jet printing, proprietary chemistry, and AI.
