Michael Snyder, PhD, is a leader in the field of functional genomics and proteomics, and one of the major participants of the ENCODE project. Seminal findings from the Snyder laboratory include the discovery that much more of the human genome is transcribed and contains regulatory information than was previously appreciated, and a high diversity of transcription factor binding occurs both between and within species. He has also pioneered the use of different state-of-the-art “omics” technologies as well as wearable devices (smart watches and continuous glucose monitoring) for managing human health. Dr. Synder’s expertise in “omic” and wearable technologies will be invaluable in both current and future ME / CFS research efforts.
Dr. Snyder is the Stanford W. Ascherman Professor and Chair, Department of Genetics and Director, Center for Genomics and Personalized Medicine at Stanford University. Dr. Snyder received his PhD at the California Institute of Technology and carried out his postdoctoral training at Stanford University.
