Saurabh Gombar, M.D., Ph.D.
Clinical Instructor and Board Certified Pathologist at Stanford Health Care
While obtaining my MD/PhD I mined the genomic material of centenarians to discover what genetic traits allow them to live a long life free of chronic diseases. My research gave me unique insight in understanding and utilizing large data sets to direct clinical research. During my training as a medical doctor I was astounded to see how much medical data goes underutilized. Believing that every patient encounter can extend the community's understanding of disease I joined the Pathology program at Stanford. My goal is to extend medical informatics, integrate all available electronic medical data, and utilize it to promote beneficial patient outcomes.
My passion is sports and my drive is to make athletes the very best that they can be. Food is fuel and I'm helping people become the most efficient running machine they can be.
