Research Professor, Computational Biology and Genetics
Dr. Joseph Grzymski serves as the Director of the Renown Institute for Health Innovation; the Chief Scientific Officer for Renown Health; and a Research Professor in Computational Biology and Genetics at the Desert Research Institute
Dr. Grzymski conceived and is the Principal Investigator of Healthy Nevada Project the largest community sponsored population health program in the U.S. He is responsible for developing new applied research initiatives at DRI and has helped expand DRIs expertise and presence in data analysis, statistics, bioinformatics, molecular biology, public health, business development and visualization through more than $7m in funding. He works closely with the Nevada Governors Office of Economic Development. cares deeply about improving health, wellness and social capital in Nevada. His academic research over more than 20 years spans biophysics, informatics and molecular biology. He received his B.A. in Philosophy and Biology at Bowdoin College, his Ph.D. from Rutgers University and was a Fulbright Scholar studying mathematical ecology.
As the CSO of Renown Health, Dr. Grzymski helped launch the largest liver disease genetics study in the United States in partnership with the pharmaceutical company, Gilead Sciences.
