Speaker "Sanjay Joshi" Details Back



A 10-year data science view of the complexity of cancer


What is cancer? Very simply, it is a cell with a faulty "off" switch. With more than 30 trillion cells in the human body, this process can be wide and varied. Sanjay will summarize four concepts that drive data in Healthcare and Life Sciences in the study of cancer: a. Sample Size (and how to get it) b. Infrastructure (and how to scale it) c. Workflows (and how to identify them) d. Complexity (and how to handle it). An anthology of data from the past 10 years that illustrate the complexity of cancer will be presented.


Sanjay Joshi is Global CIO, Healthcare and Life Sciences at Tanium. Based in Seattle, he has
spanned the gamut of life-sciences from clinical and biotechnology research to healthcare informatics
to medical devices. A "skunkworks" engineer and informaticist, he defines himself as a "non -
reductionist" and “non-conformist”, with a "systems view of the real world.” Sanjay is currently focused
on data, policy and process approaches for security, trust and privacy using scalable systems, data
and cloud infrastructures for devices, genomics, proteomics, microbiomics, imaging, the phenotype
(EMR) and their interoperability, and trust along the customers' journey.
Recent experience has included corporate technology strategy, AI platforms, time-series data
analysis, data management for Electronic Medical Records; instruments and methods for Proteomics
and Flow Cytometry; FDA and HIPAA verification and validation; Lab Information Management
Systems (LIMS); Translational Genomics research and Imaging. Sanjay holds a patent in multidimensional flow cytometry analytics.
Sanjay was the recipient of a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Small Business Innovation Research
(SBIR) grant and has been a consultant or co-Principal-Investigator on several NIH grants. He is
actively involved in non-profit biotech and data networking organizations in the Seattle area and
beyond. Sanjay holds a Master of Biomedical Engineering from the University of New South Wales,
Sydney and a Bachelor of Instrumentation Technology from Bangalore University. He completed
several medical school and PhD level courses (in Sydney and Seattle).
