Abstract
Howard J. Jacob, Ph.D., Founding Director of the Personalized Medicine Program and Human and Molecular Genetics Center and Professor in Physiology and Pediatrics at the Medical College of Wisconsin and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. In 2010 Dr. Jacob led a team of researchers at the Medical College who for the first time ever were able to use the human genome to diagnose and treat a young boy, Nicholas Volker whose life threatening disease had baffled his doctors. Nik is now leading a fully and healthy life. Dr. Jacob completed his Ph.D. at the University of Iowa followed by fellowships at MIT, Harvard and Stanford. He has published over 230 papers. He is an entrepreneur and serves on several scientific advisory boards.
