Mark DePristo

Mark DePristo leads Google Brain Genomics, a research team focused on applying deep learning to problems in genetics and genomics. Before joining Google I was Vice President of Informatics at SynapDx, a Google Ventures-backed startup developing a blood-based test for Autism. And before that I was Co-Director of Medical and Population Genetics at the Broad Institute where I created and led the team that developed the GATK, the dominant software for processing next-generation DNA sequencing data. I have an BA in Computer Science and Math from Northwestern, a PhD in Biochemistry from University of Cambridge where I was a Marshall fellow, and finally did a postdoc at Harvard studying antibiotic resistance evolution. My academic articles are widely published with more than 28,000 citations.
