Event details:   The ability to decipher genomes started with viruses and bacteria and rapidly moved to eukaryotes and finally to mammals, especially Homo sapiens. The speed at which this technology has progressed is mind-boggling, from Maxam-Gilbert sequencing in the 70s to single molecule sequencing today. But how has this tsunami of information benefited human healthcare? Steve will discuss examples from virology (first and yesterday), oncology and cardiovascular diseases (today), and speculate on what the future may hold.

About the Speaker:
Steve has been the Chief Scientific Officer at CardioDx, a molecular diagnostics company, focused on the application of genomic information to cardiovascular diseases, since 2006, and led the team which launched Corus CAD™, a blood based gene expression test for the assessment of coronary artery disease, in 2009. Prior to that he spent three years at XDx, leading the team which developed Allomap™ gene expression testing for detection of rejection in heart transplant recipients. From 1981 to 2001 Steve occupied positions of increasing responsibility at Chiron Corporation, where he was named one of three Chiron Fellows in the company. He completed his PhD and post-doctoral work in biochemistry at UC Berkeley.
