Biographical Sketch:
Dr. Tonellato currently is Professor, School of Public Health, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee where he directs the Laboratory for Personalized Medicine. He is also, Professor of Computer Science in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Professor Tonellato has a joint appointment with Harvard Medical School as senior research scientist and director of the Laboratory for Personalized Medicine (LPM) at the Center for Biomedical Informatics, Harvard Medical School (lpm.hms.harvard.edu) and Visiting Professor, Department of Pathology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. The LPM develops strategies, methods, bioinformatic tools, and analyses to study and test the accuracy and clinical efficacy of genetic discoveries and accelerate their translation to practical clinical use. The LPM designs and executes insilico experiments to explore and solve barriers to translation from discovery to clinical use. Dr. Tonellato’s most recent work includes the creation of ‘clinical avatars’ used to simulate realistic patient populations and provide a collection of electronic medical records used to test the efficacy of genetic data, accuracy of predictive algorithms, and to conduct clinical trial simulations. The LPM is the first biomedical research lab to establish all computational systems and services ‘on the cloud’ implemented on Amazon’s AWS environment.
