- PROFESSOR & CHAIR Genetics and Genomic Sciences
- DIRECTOR, INSTITUTE FOR GENOMICS AND MULTISCALE BIOLOGY
- Eric Schadt, PhD, is Director of the Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology, Chair of the Department of Genetics and Genomics Sciences and the Jean C. and James W. Crystal Professor of Genomics.
Dr. Schadt is an expert on the generation and integration of very large-scale sequence variation, molecular profiling and clinical data in disease populations for constructing molecular networks that define disease states and link molecular biology to physiology. His research has provided novel insights into what is needed to master diverse, large-scale data collected on normal and disease populations in order to elucidate the complexity of disease and make more informed decisions in the drug discovery arena. He has contributed to a number of discoveries relating to the genetic basis of common human diseases such as diabetes and obesity, which have been widely published in leading scientific journals.
Dr. Schadt is also a founding member of Sage Bionetworks, an open-access genomics initiative designed to build and support databases and an accessible platform for creating innovative dynamic disease models. Prior to joining Pacific Biosciences in 2009, he was Executive Scientific Director of Genetics at Rosetta Inpharmatics, a subsidiary of Merck & Co., Inc. in Seattle, and before Rosetta, Dr. Schadt was a Senior Research Scientist at Roche Bioscience. He received his B.A. in applied mathematics and computer science from California Polytechnic State University, his M.A. in pure mathematics and his Ph.D. in bio-mathematics from University of California, Los Angeles.
