Speaker Profile:

Dr. Ron Do is the Charles Bronfman Professor in Personalized Medicine and Professor in the Department of Genetics and Genomic Sciences at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He leads a research program focused on using computational genomic and data science approaches to understand the genetic, biological and clinical basis of human diseases. He pursues this research by developing and applying methods in statistical computing, machine learning, genetic epidemiology, statistical genetics and population genetics to large-scale human genotyping, sequencing, functional and clinical datasets. He has led projects that has used exome sequencing for discovery of novel genetic causes of plasma lipids and myocardial infarction, developed and applied methods to identify causal relationships between risk factors and disease using Mendelian randomization, and analyzed large-scale electronic health record-linked biobank datasets to develop machine learning-based clinical risk scores for human diseases, amongst other activities. Ron has authored over 130 scientific publications, including lead or senior author publications in Nature, New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of American Medical Association, Lancet and Nature Genetics. For his research efforts, he was awarded The Dr. Harold and Golden Lamport Clinical Research Award from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, awarded to junior faculty who show exceptional potential for making significant contributions over an extended period of time. Prior to joining Mount Sinai, Ron was a Canadian Institute of Health Research Banting Postdoctoral Fellow in Human Genetics and Instructor in Medicine in the Center for Human Genetic Research (now Center for Genomic Medicine) at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. He received his Ph.D. in Human Genetics from McGill University, his M.Sc. in Experimental Medicine and B.Sc. in Cell Biology and Genetics from University of British Columbia.


Seminars are sponsored by The Hospital for Sick Children (Genetics & Genome Biology Program), the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute, the Department of Statistical Sciences of the University of Toronto, and the McLaughlin Centre.
