Computational precision health programme welcomes new faculty, invites PhD applicants aiming to transform health care
Adam Yala, MIT Jameel Clinic alumni, is announced as one of three assistant professors to join the UCSF-UC Berkeley Joint Programme in Computational Precision Health (CPH) in its 2023 PhD cohort. Adam speaks about this experience gathering patient datasets and mammogram images to predict breast cancer risk. "In many cases, we could have significantly reduced patient suffering if only we caught the disease earlier. By building better technologies, we have the opportunity to systemically change outcomes," he says.
