Michael Snyder

Mike Snyder runs a lab at Stanford focused on finding predictable patterns of potential disease or sickness in ones body by using a huge amount of data. Basically, they are looking for an individual’s healthy state at a personal level and what happens when they transition into other states (i.e. sickness or disease). Mike shares his personal story and data of going through 10 viral infections, Lyme disease and a bike accident. Then, he discusses the sequencing of his genome, which predicted many things that matched his family history, including that he was at risk for type 2 diabetes that he got during the course of the study.
