Gregory Hannum, PhD
Gregory has more than six years of industrial experience in bioinformatics, clinical statistics, and advanced machine learning. He worked at Sequenom for two years, where he led the development of their fetal diagnostic computational pipeline. This included inventorship of a novel DNA signal processing algorithm, which is now patented in multiple countries. Prior to founding Denovium, Greg was a Senior Bioinformatics Scientist at Synthetic Genomics Inc (SGI), where he pioneered state-of-the-art research into genome assembly and genome resequencing approaches. He also served as the product owner for the Archetype web genomics platform and was a chief contributor to SGI's machine learning capabilities. Gregory received his PhD in Bioengineering from the University of California, San Diego. His thesis included the development of a human aging clock based on DNA methylation, and its relationship to gender, tissue, disease, and genetics.
