About the presenters
Michael Schatz, Bloomberg Distinguished Associate Professor of Computer Science and Biology at Johns Hopkins University, is among the world’s foremost experts in solving computational problems in genomics research. His innovative biotechnologies and computational tools to study the sequence and function of genomes are advancing the understanding of the structure, evolution, and function of genomes for medicine – particularly autism spectrum disorders, cancer, and other human disease – and agriculture. Schatz, who founded and directs the Schatz Lab, has created many of the most widely used methods and software to assemble the full genetic material for a single person or a species.
Schatz holds appointments in the Department of Computer Science at the Whiting School of Engineering and in the Department of Biology at JHU Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. He also serves as a cancer prevention and control program member for the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins. Prior to joining JHU in 2016, he spent six years at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) where he co-led the Cancer Genetics & Genomics Program in the CSHL Cancer Center. Schatz remains a CSHL adjunct associate professor of Quantitative Biology. He holds a BS in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University (2000) and an MS (2008) and PhD (2010), both in Computer Science, from the University of Maryland, College Park.
