J. Brian Byrd
J. Brian Byrd investigates hypertension. He has investigated the mechanism of ACE inhibitor-associated angioedema in a rodent model, a case-control study, a GWAS, and a randomized clinical trial of a new drug, and he served as an investigator for the SYMPLICITY HTN-3 pivotal clinical trial of renal artery denervation. His principal interest is resistant hypertension, especially endocrine forms of hypertension. Recently, his laboratory has has been focused on developing novel biomarkers of human mineralocorticoid receptor activation. Beyond these research contributions, in 2017, he and Casey Greene announced in the NEJM the creation of the Research Symbiont Awards, which recognize excellence in data sharing. He is a principal investigator at the University of Michigan School of Medicine, where he is Assistant Professor in the Department of Internal Medicine’s Division of Cardiovascular Medicine.
Bethany A. Kerr
Bethany Kerr is an Assistant Professor in the Wake Forest University School of Medicine. The Kerr lab investigates the mechanisms of bone metastasis from primary tumor escape to circulating tumor cell survival to homing focusing on both the tumor and microenvironmental cells and signaling using in vitro, in vivo, and tissue-engineered models.
Benjamin F. Voight
I am a statistical and population geneticist interested in understanding the relationship between DNA sequence variation and complex human disease. To build this understanding, my lab constructs statistical and computational methods grounded in principles of population biology, applying them to genetic data collected across entire human genomes. My research has answered population genetic questions about recent demographic and selective events in human populations, and I have helped to map hundreds of risk loci common diseases, particularly type-2 diabetes and heart attack. I have also contributed to the growing field of causal inference studies via Mendelian Randomization.
Casey S. Greene
Casey Greene is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Systems Pharmacology and Translational Therapeutics at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine and the Director of Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation's Childhood Cancer Data Lab. His lab aims to develop deep learning methods that integrate distinct large-scale datasets to extract the rich and intrinsic information embedded in such integrated data.

Laura K. Wiley
Laura Wiley is an Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. Her lab broadly focuses on harnessing the power of electronic medical records for precision medicine. From phenomics to pharmacogenomics, her primary goal is to help improve patient care by using and applying data, big and small alike. She is also passionate about health policy and its role in enabling and encouraging innovation for patients and healthcare.
Lucia Peixoto is an Assistant Professor at the College of Medicine and a member of the Sleep and Performance Research center at WSU Spokane. She is working to understand the genetic links to autism and related symptoms, such as learning disabilities and disturbed sleep.
Buck S. Samuel
Buck Samuel is an Assistant Professor in the Alkek Center for Metagenomics and Microbiome Research and Department of Molecular Virology and Microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine. The lab is interested in defining the host and microbial molecular networks that mediate microbiome programming of host physiology. Broadly interested in open science, discovery-oriented basic research, genomics, organismal systems biology and tool development.
Olivier Gevaert is an Assistant Professor Assistant Professor of Medicine (Biomedical informatics) and Biomedical Data Science at the Stanford University School of Medicine. The Gevaert lab focuses on multi scale biomedical data fusion focusing on applications in oncology. This involves modeling data at molecular, cellular and tissue levels using a wide range of different technologies such as sequencing (DNA, RNA) and imaging (e.g. MRI, CT, PET). We develop computational approaches to find relevant patterns in these high dimensional, multi-modal data sets. These machine-learning methods combine elements from statistics, mathematics and apply them on multi-scale data ranging from molecular biology, pathology to radiology.
