Webinar Details

The annual Mahoney Lecture is named in honor of Florence Stephenson Mahoney (1899­-2002), who devoted the last half of her life to successfully advocating for the creation of the National Institute on Aging and increased support for NIH. 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. During his lecture, Dr. Schadt will focus on the integration of the digital universe of information to better diagnose, treat, and prevent human disease. The lecture will feature the work of Dr. Schadt and his team at the Icahn Institute, which seeks to understand the vast network of genes, proteins, metabolites, and environmental factors that drive the function of the human body.

Eric Schadt
Eric Schadt, PhD, is Dean for Precision Medicine, Professor of Genetics and Genomic Sciences and Mount Sinai Professor in Predictive Health and Computational Biology, and a member of the Icahn Institute of Data Science and Genomic Technology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He is also founder and CEO of Sema4, a Mount Sinai Venture 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. He is known for calling for a shift in molecular biology toward a network-oriented view of living systems to complement the reductionist, single-gene approaches that currently dominate biology in order to more accurately model the complexity of biological systems. He has published more than 200 peer-reviewed papers in leading scientific journals, and contributed to a number of discoveries relating to the genetic basis of common human diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and Alzheimer’s disease.
