The Institute for Precision Medicine hosts a monthly virtual speaker series via Zoom to highlight advances in Precision Medicine research and in Personalized care – not only at Pitt/UPMC but across the United States.

The IPM Spring 2023 virtual speaker series talk will be given by Matt Might, Ph.D., on March 18th at 4:00pm via Zoom. Dr. Might has been the Director of the Hugh Kaul Precision Medicine Institute at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) since 2017. At UAB, Dr. Might is the Hugh Kaul Endowed Chair of Personalized Medicine, a Professor of Internal Medicine, and a Professor of Computer Science.

In his presentation entitled “Precision Medicine: Bringing n of 1 to Everyone”, Dr. Might will talk about his cutting-edge research that lies at the intersection of medicine and computation. While initial cases have demonstrated the power and potential of precision medicine, scaling this kind of ultra-individualized treatment remains a challenge. The talk sketches an algorithm for precision medicine to illustrate a general roadmap for patients, while also drawing attention to specific bottlenecks and opportunities within the process.

Dr. Might received his Ph.D., in Computer Science from Georgia Institute of Technology. In 2015, Matt joined the faculty of the Department of Biomedical Informatics at the Harvard Medical School, first as Visiting Professor and since 2017 as Senior Lecturer. From 2016 to 2018, Matt was a Strategist in the Executive Office of the President in The White House.

Please mark your calendars for March 15th at 4:00pm.
