Speakers

Donald J. Johann, Jr., MD, MSc, FACP
Professor, College of Medicine Scientific; Director of the UAMS Genomics Sequencing Facility @University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences
He is a physician/scientist (medical oncologist), Professor at UAMS and the Scientific Director of the UAMS Genomics Sequencing Facility. His scientific focus concerns advanced molecular profiling and high-throughput technologies for the characterization of molecular alterations in cancer cells. Previously, he was an assistant investigator at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), Center for Cancer Research (CCR), in Bethesda, MD. Prior to attending medical school he worked as an engineer for the Unisys Corporation for six years, where he directed a team of five engineers on projects involving advanced avionic software design and instrumentation. Dr. Johann received his M.D., from Case Western and received graduate with distinction honors. Following residency he then became a postdoctoral research fellow at the NIH/NCI Lab of Pathology, under the mentorship of Dr. Lance Liotta. He was twice selected for an AACR Scholar-in-Training Award for research work involving novel bioinformatics.
Dr. Fritz Sedlazeck
Associate Professor at the Human Genome Sequencing Center and an Adjunct Associate Professor at Rice University @Baylor College of Medicine
Dr. Fritz Sedlazeck is an Associate Professor at the Human Genome Sequencing Center at Baylor College of Medicine and an Adjunct Associate Professor at Rice University. His research focuses on algorithmic developments and high-performance computing for genomic and genetic applications. Specifically, he studies ways to improve the characterization of complex genomic alterations between individuals’ genomes based on large genomic sequencing data and as such improve our understanding of complex phenotypes such as human diseases.
