Bioinformatics Engineer

Center for Data Driven Discovery in Biomedicine

Miguel Brown is a Bioinformatics Engineer responsible for developing and maintaining analysis pipelines for projects within the D3b center relating to harmonizing sequencing data from multiple institutions across the world.  His overarching goal is to develop bioinformatics workflows and applications to accelerate the pediatric genomics studies and discoveries.

Before starting at CHOP in June of 2018, Miguel worked at the University of Chicago, where he was a part of the Chicago Pancreatic Cancer Initiative.  While there, he wrote analysis pipelines for large cohort prospective and retrospective studies, with the goal of sharing this data publicly when completed.  These pipelines aimed to increase the efficiency and efficacy of diagnosing and treating pancreatic cancer patients.

Miguel earned a BA in Biology from the University of Rochester before completing a MA in Biomedical Informatics from Columbia University. He is committed to continuing to contribute to groundbreaking research and putting his education and experience to use for the public good.
