Program Update | New Genome Center Partners
The All of Us Research Program has brought onboard new partners to establish three Genome Centers across the country. These partnerships will allow the program to generate genomic data from participants’ biosamples. In this video, director Eric Dishman welcomes the new partners and explains why this is an important milestone for All of Us as the program seeks to collect a diversity of data types to enable researchers to understand the many factors that influence health for each of us.
Dr. Brett Kagan, Ph.D. – CSO, Cortical Labs – Biological Computing For The Post Silicon Age
Dr. Brett Kagan, Ph.D. is the Chief Scientific Officer at Cortical Labs ( https://corticallabs.com/ ), a biological computing startup putting live neurons into chips to revolutionize computing and help usher in the post-silicon age.
Potential applications for the unique organic-digital convergence tools that Cortical Labs is working on are quite broad including: novel ex-vivo models for drug screening in CNS conditions such as epilepsy and dementia; a deeper understanding about how our brains organize activity and learn; inspiration for new machine learning methods; and ultimately tapping the inherent intelligence of living neurons, for their superior computing power and low energy consumption, for the creation of true neuromorphic computing.
Dr. Kagan obtained a Bachelors of Psychology from Bond University, a Masters of Neuroscience from the The University of Queensland, and a Ph.D., focused on Cell Therapy for Neonatal Brain, from the University of Melbourne.
