Dr George Busby – Implementing genomic precision medicine with polygenic risk scores
George is a statistical geneticist and science communicator. He has worked at the University of Oxford for more than 10 years and his scientific work has been published in Nature and Science, amongst other journals. He has always been fascinated by the potential of DNA to be used to reconstruct human evolutionary history by analysing large genomic datasets with advanced statistical modelling. He now leads Allelica’s scientific team, helping to bring polygenic risk scores to the market for the first time by showing their use in medical genetics.
