Dr. Carlos D. Bustamante is an internationally recognized leader in the application of data science and genomics technology to problems in medicine, agriculture, and biology. He received his Ph.D. in Biology and MS in Statistics from Harvard University (2001), was on the faculty at Cornell University (2002-9), and was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2010. He is currently Professor of Biomedical Data Science, Genetics, and (by courtesy) Biology at Stanford University. Dr. Bustamante has a passion for building new academic units, non-profits, and companies to solve pressing scientific challenges. He is Founding Director of the Stanford Center for Computational, Evolutionary, and Human Genomics (CEHG) and Inaugural Chair of the Department of Biomedical Data Science. He is the Owner and President of CDB Consulting, LTD. and also a Director at EdenRoc Sciences, LLC, founder of Arc Bio LLC (formerly IdentifyGenomics LLC and BigData Bio LLC), and an SAB member of Imprimed, Etalon DX, Columbia Care, and Digitalis Ventures.
My genetics research focuses on analyzing genome wide patterns of variation within and between species to address fundamental questions in biology, anthropology, and medicine. We focus on novel methods development for complex disease genetics and risk prediction in multi-ethnic settings. I am also interested in clinical data science and development of new diagnostics.I am also interested in disruptive innovation for healthcare including modeling long-term risk shifts and novel payment models.
Personal Genomics for Preventive Cardiology
The purpose of this study is to see if providing information to a person on their inherited
(genetic) risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) helps to motivate that person to change their
diet, lifestyle or medication regimen to alter their risk.
Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
