A Conversation with Dr. Steve Scherer: Opening New Paths to Innovation by Changing the Way You Think
In this installment of Veriday’s thought leadership conversations, we welcome Dr. Steve Scherer. Prof. Scherer has spent three decades decoding some of the biggest challenges in science by studying data points that don’t seem to fit, a.k.a ‘odd-ball data’. Following this approach, he discovered a new class of genetic variation hidden from generations of scientists before him and then applied this insight to explain some of the most intriguing questions confronting studies in evolution and disease.
His research is centered around understanding the composition of the human genome for studies of genetic disease and structural variations. Dr. Scherer will share how his research is changing our society and how it influences our lives and businesses. Topics covered during this talk will include his work, work being done to solve COVID-19 and its variations as well as other major initiatives.
Dr. Steve Scherer won numerous awards and in 2014, was named an esteemed Thomson Reuters Citation Laureate, the highest accuracy predictor for future Nobel Prizes.
