Dr. Karen Sachs completed her Ph.D. at MIT Bioengineering where she pioneered the use of single-cell data for causal modeling of molecular networks. She completed her postdoc at Stanford where she continued to use her expertise to develop models for drug response analysis and improved dimensionality of single-cell proteomics data. Dr. Sachs went on to found a computational biology consulting firm - Next Generation Analytics - with projects in a variety of impact areas in academia and industry. She also serves as Chief Data Scientist at Answer ALS, where she focuses on omics data integration, in an effort to decipher the pathophysiology of ALS. She has been using and developing tools in machine learning and data science for more than 10 years.
