Q and A: Dr. Joel Dudley

 – April 14, 2015  –– 

Director of biomedical informatics at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York, Joel Dudley, PhD, uses big data, genomics and a supercomputer called Minerva to build new models of disease, find new uses for drugs and – eventually – predict illness. "I put two and two together. DNA's digital. It's the sheet music. And the notes, in effect, are mRNA. They tell you the degree to which a gene is on or off in a cell. It's like match.com for disease and drugs," he says.
