Invention Big-data approaches to precision medicine and drug development
Inventor Olga Troyanskaya, professor of computer science and the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics
Olga Troyanskaya and her team have developed techniques to comb large collections of genomic and other data to make fundamental discoveries and identify new therapeutic targets. These “big data” methods can be applied to numerous disorders for which people can have genetic susceptibilities, from cancer and chronic kidney disease to autism and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
Development status Princeton is seeking outside interest for further development of this technology.
