Dr. Vincent Plagnol

Head of Precision Health

I am leading a team of data scientists and statistical geneticists working on the translation of genetic and genomic technologies to improve health care, personalised medicine and public health.

I grew up in France and moved to the US for my postgraduate studies. I obtained my PhD in Applied Mathematics at the University of Southern California. After a postdoc in Cambridge I became an associate Professor at University College London in 2009. I started working in the private sector in 2012 when I joined Inivata, a cancer diagnostics company in the field of circulating tumour DNA. I joined Genomics plc in January 2019.
