Nathan Palmer received a PhD in computer science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, studying machine learning, protein folding, and functional genomics. He then held a postdoctoral research position in the lab of Isaac Kohane at Harvard Medical School during which his research interests expanded to include large-scale genomics, epidemiology, and medical informatics. He currently directs the Healthcare Data Science Program in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at Harvard Medical School. This program brings access to tens of billions of medical facts from tens of millions of patients to the research community at HMS, and develops both the technical and methodological solutions to perform novel analytics at scale. Dr. Palmer continues to work in the area of functional genomics and epidemiology through collaborations with the various Harvard teaching hospitals.
