Affiliation: New York Genome Center/Weill Cornell Medicine 

Talk Title: Beyond the Streetlight Effect: What Whole Genome Sequencing Can Teach Us About Cancer

BiographyMarcin Imielinski MD, PhD, joined the New York Genome Center (NYGC) in June 2015 as Core Member and Assistant Investigator. He is jointly appointed as Assistant Professor of Computational Genomics and Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine and the Meyer Cancer Center. Dr. Imielinski spends a portion of his time as an attending Molecular Pathologist at the Englander Institute for Precision Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine and New York-Presbyterian Hospital.

Dr. Imielinski received a B.S. in Computer Science from Rutgers College in 2000. He obtained a PhD in Genomics and Computational Biology and MD from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in 2008. Dr. Imielinksi finished Pathology residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital in 2011 and Molecular Genetic Pathology fellowship at Harvard Medical School in 2012. Prior to joining NYGC, he was a postdoctoral fellow in Computational Cancer Genomics at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT under the mentorship of Matthew Meyerson and Gad Getz. He is a board-certified molecular genetic pathologist. Dr. Imielinski’s research work includes more than 40 peer-reviewed publications across several areas of genomics and computational biology. He is a recipient of a Burroughs Wellcome Career Award for Medical Scientists.

Dr. Imielinski’s career interests are to apply high-throughput sequencing and computation to study patterns of somatic genomic variation in cancer. He is specifically interested in probing long-range cancer genome structure through the use of cutting-edge sequencing protocols and the development of novel machine learning and data visualization approaches. Dr. Imielinski is passionate about expanding the role of computation and data science in laboratory medicine, and envisions a future in which “quantitative pathologists” help direct treatment choices through the application of statistical intuition and sophisticated multivariate analyses.
