Tudor Groza is a Computer Scientist with 15 years experience in representing, extracting and processing structured knowledge in the biomedical domain, clinical genomics and precision medicine. His work spans across various dimensions of the research – clinical care continuum, from devising algorithms to support clinical decision-making in the rare disorders field, to standardisation of clinical terminology (in the context of the Undiagnosed Diseases Network – International, Australian Genomics or Global Alliance for Genomics and Health) and integration with national public and private health systems.
A particular area of interest is computational phenotyping in rare disorders – where Tudor’s work aims to improve the diagnostic odyssey of rare disorder patients. He has developed algorithms to gain a deeper understanding of the triumvirate phenotype – gene – disease and applied them to disease exploration and creation of personalised phenotype-driven gene panels. In addition, he is the main developer of several innovative platforms for clinical deep phenotyping and knowledge curation, currently used in production around the world.
His current focus – as a co-founder of Pryzm Health – is on empowering patients to contribute to the management and enrichment of their phenotype data.
