Dr. Dudley is currently Assistant Professor of Genetics and Genomic Sciences and Director of Biomedical Informatics at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. Prior to Mount Sinai, he held positions as Co-founder and Director of Informatics at NuMedii, Inc. and Consulting Professor of Systems Medicine in the Department of Pediatrics at Stanford University School of Medicine, where he participated in leading research to incorporate genome sequencing into clinical practice (published in The Lancet, Cell, and PLoS Genetics). Dr. Dudley’s current research is focused towards solving key problems in genomics and precision medicine through the development and application of translational and biomedical informatics methodologies. His lab publishes in the areas of bioinformatics, genomic medicine, personal and clinical genomics, as well as drug and biomarker discovery. His recent work with co-authors describing a novel systems based approach for computational drug repositioning (published in Science Translational Medicine) was featured in the print edition of the Wall Street Journal, and earned designation as the NHGRI Director’s Genome Advance of the Month. He is co-author of the book Exploring Personal Genomics from Oxford University Press. He received a BS in Microbiology from Arizona State University and an MS and PhD in Biomedical Informatics from Stanford University School of Medicine.
He has authored or co-authored over 50 scientific papers with over 27,000 total citations, and co-authored the first textbook on personalized genomics. Joel is also an inventor, with patents on the clinical interpretation of an individual’s genome and numerous other patents applications.
