Meet Amrita, Bioinformatics Research Leader at Pleasanton, CA
"The sky is the limit when it comes to learning about new domains and extending your skills."more
I was fascinated by the complexity of the human genome and the opportunity to apply my skills to solve the challenging algorithmic and data science problems in the new era of biomedicine.more
The most special thing about my department is the diversity of projects we are involved in; covering large parts of the diagnostic unit. Using data science and statistics, I work on process optimization in production and support my colleagues in the test development.more
Have you ever wondered what we could achieve, if we bring together the best expertise in molecular biology, modern diagnostics and smart analytics? How might patients' lives be changed for the better? Let yourself be inspired.

The world of healthcare is evolving, with expertise in different disciplines converging to accelerate progress in personalised healthcare. Some of these trends, for example advances in our understanding of the biology of disease, and the growing availability of real world data and electronic health records, are often talked about. On this occasion, we would like to shine a spotlight on comprehensive genomic profiling (CGP), a key driver of transformation in personalised cancer care. Where we would have once called this field science fiction, its impact is a reality today.more
