Biography: Dr. Stuart received his PhD in Biomedical Informatics at Stanford University. He has expertise in developing computational models to integrate multiple sources of information and a background in machine-learning applied to high-throughput datasets. He has recently developed pathway-based models to integrate multiple sources of gene activity to predict alterations and clinical outcomes in tumor samples. He co-leads the Pan-Cancer working groups for the Cancer Genome Atlas project and the International Cancer Genomics Consortium, co-directs the UCSC-Buck institute genome data analysis center, directs a big data resource for NCI to develop high-level information from CGHub raw DNA/RNA sequence data, and leads the pathway analysis for a prostate cancer Stand Up To Cancer and Prostate Cancer Foundation “Dream Team.”
