Pathway Genomics Adds Prominent Bioinformatics Experts to Scientific Advisory Board

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

Pathway Genomics Corporation, a genetic testing laboratory specializing in nutrition and exercise response, inherited disease, prescription drug response and health condition risks, has established a world-leading scientific advisory board. Among the board members are James Fowler, Ph.D., professor of medical genetics at UCSD School of Medicine, Christoph Lange, Ph.D., associate professor of biostatistics at Harvard University School of Public Health, and Nicholas Schork, Ph.D., director of bioinformatics and biostatistics at the Scripps Translational Science Institute.

Additionally, the companys internal computational and bioinformatics team is led by Lixin Zhou, Ph.D., former senior scientist at Illumina and former collaborative bioinformatics investigator at The Institute for Genomic Research, an organization of The J. Craig Venter Institute.

Working with innovators in specific and technical fields helps Pathway bring highly accurate, useful and actionable information to physicians and their patients, said Michael Nova, M.D., Pathway Genomics chief medical officer. Were committed to seeking out this actionable genetic information through computational biology methods, and cloud-based bioinformatics.

An acclaimed behavioral geneticist, James Fowler, Ph.D., is currently a professor of medical genetics at UCSD School of Medicine, and is world-renowned for his breakthrough discoveries in genetics and social networking, behavioral economics, cooperation, and political behavior.

Christoph Lange, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and an associate professor of biostatistics at Harvard School of Public Health. Langes current research interests fall into the broad areas of statistical genetics and generalized linear models.

Nicholas J. Schork, Ph.D., is a professor at The Scripps Research Institute in the department of molecular and experimental medicine and director of bioinformatics and biostatistics at the Scripps Translational Science Institute. Schorks research focuses are in quantitative human genetics and integrated approaches to complex biological and medical problems. He has published over 350 scientific articles and book chapters analyzing complex, multifactorial traits and diseases.

Pathways scientific advisory board consists of 10 leaders in various fields including behavioral genetics, bioinformatics, biostatistics, endocrinology, human epigenetics, metabolism, nutrigenomics, nutrition, obesity and exercise genetics, oncology, and weight management.
