Chirag Patel, PhD

Associate Professor of Biomedical Informatics
10 Shattuck Street, Boston, MA 02115

Chirag Patel's long-term research goal is to address problems in human health and disease by developing computational and bioinformatics methods to reproducibly and efficiently reason over high-throughput data streams spanning molecules to populations. Patel's group aims to dissect inter-individual differences in human phenomes through strategies that integrate data sources that capture the comprehensive clinical experience (e.g., through the electronic medical record), the complex phenomena of environmental exposure (e.g., high-throughput measures of the exposome), and inherited genomic variation. He received his doctorate in biomedical informatics from Stanford University.
