Dr. Kellogg’s experience with complex illness led him to pioneer technology for molecular profiling using self-collected blood microsamples as a scientist at Stanford University. This allows for a better understanding of health fluctuations and the impacts of health interventions. When combined with wearable sensors and symptom tracking, this technology allows for real-time health monitoring and pattern discovery with unprecedented resolution.
Dr. Snyder is the head of Stanford’s Healthcare Innovation Lab, co-founder of multiple companies, and a pioneer in the use of wearable devices and app-collected data to understand, detect, and even predict changes in general health and disease.
