Biography: Dr. Joshua Denny is Professor of Biomedical Informatics and Medicine, Director of the Center for Precision Medicine and Vice President of Personalized Medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He is a Fellow of the American College of Medical Informatics and a member of the National Academy of Medicine. He has substantial experience in the design, development, and implementation of electronic health record (EHR) data mining algorithms and was the primary author of several natural language processing systems to support phenotype extraction algorithms for genomic research projects, including development of the phenome-wide association study (PheWAS) method. He is principal investigator (PI) of nodes in the Electronic Medical Records and Genomics (eMERGE) Network, Pharmacogenomics Research Network (PGRN), and the Implementing Genomics into Practice (IGNITE) Network. Dr. Denny is PI of the Data and Research Center of the Precision Medicine Initiative All of Us Research Program (previously called the Precision Medicine Initiative Cohort Program), which will eventually enroll at least 1 million Americans in an effort to understand the genetic, environmental, and behavioral factors that influence human health and disease. To date, he has led >100 genome-wide and candidate gene association studies using EHR data linked to genetic data. Dr. Denny serves on a number of mentoring committees and has trained >30 postdoctoral and predoctoral trainees.
