Dan leads a dynamic team of bioinformatics and data scientists at Rancho whom tackle a wide range of biomedical analysis projects including: building custom analysis pipelines, glean mechanistic and strategic insight from clinical trial data, and facilitating big data processing in the cloud. His team functions by both integrating into existing in-house bioinformatics teams and working collaboratively to provide project-specific expertise. Dan brings with him a broad track record of academic and pharmaceutical industry success with over 12 years of biomedical research and project management experience in cancer biology, infectious disease and clinical data science.
Dan was awarded his PhD in Cell and Developmental Biology from the University of California, Davis for identifying a novel signalling network that recognizes aberrant chromosome divisions that could lead to the development of cancer. As a postdoctoral researcher in the National Emerging Infectious Diseases Lab (NEIDL) at Boston University, Dan made significant contributions towards the understanding of innate cellular defences against viral infection.
