Ep 118: Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGM) with Dr. Michael Snyder, Chair of Genetics and Director of Genomics and Personalised Medicine at Stanford University
In this episode of Run with Fitpage, we had the pleasure of hosting the world’s leading genomicist – Dr. Michael Snyder. Vikas and Dr. Snyder talk about CGMs and other variables in one of the most insightful conversations of Run with Fitpage so far.
Michael Snyder is the Stanford Ascherman Professor and Chair of Genetics and the Director of the Center of Genomics and Personalized Medicine. He received his Ph.D. training at the California Institute of Technology and carried out postdoctoral training at Stanford University. Dr. Snyder has pioneered the use of “big data” and multi-omics to advance scientific discovery and transform healthcare. His laboratory has invented many technologies that are widely used in medicine and research, including methods for characterizing genomes and their products (e.g. RNA-Seq, NGS paired-end sequencing, ChIP-Chip and later Chip-Seq, protein arrays, machine learning for disease gene discovery).
Snyder Lab was the first to perform a large-scale functional genomics project in any organism and has developed many technologies in genomics and proteomics. He has also co-founded January AI and Iollo. Listen to this episode with a pen and paper to learn more about Continous Glucose Monitoring and much more!
