Life-Saving Genome Sequencing

Show notes

In this episode, Sneha Goenka talks about her work on the ultra-rapid genome team at Stanford University, which ultimately led to their development of the world’s fastest genome diagnosis technique, a crucial tool in helping rapid identification and diagnosis of genetic diseases. We also learn how that breakthrough led to her nomination as one of the 2023 Forbes 30 Under 30 honorees in the Science category. Finally, we hear from her about her expectations for the upcoming 10th HLF.

The Heidelberg Laureate Forum has a single purpose: To provide some of the brightest minds in mathematics and computer science with the space and time to make connections and find inspiration. The HLFF Spotlight series shines a light on some of the brilliant young researchers attending the event.
