Gans previously was a Senior Principal Engineer and the Chief Architect of several generations of multi-core Xeon processors at Intel Corp. At Intel, he spearheaded the Intel-OHSU Collaborative Cancer Cloud, a federated cloud platform for cancer research. He also holds over 30 patents to his name.
Omics Data Automation is a startup based in Beaverton, OR. At ODA doctors, engineers, and programmers all collaborate and work together to create tools to enable precision medicine. They use their combined expertise to specifically tackle the growing problem of big data.
Medicine is quickly becoming a big data industry. Advances in high throughput sequencing and clinical imaging are generating bigger and more complex data which hospitals are struggling to efficiently store, scale up, quickly recall, and run computations across multiple data types. ODA have developed a framework that allows any organization working on disparate medical data to do just that.
ODA hope to disrupt current treatment of complex genetic diseases! They want to eliminate the current data silos, and enable computation across all relevant medical data to create insights which are difficult to obtain without a computational resource. ODA want to provide a robust framework, and tools, so that doctors and researchers can work together to create a more personalized treatment plan. So that drugs can be created to precisely target specific g gene mutations which were discovered by the researchers. So that in a few years a patient can come into a clinic, get their diagnosis, clinical testing, and treatment plan “all in a day”.
