Soumya Raychaudhuri is a Professor of Medicine and Biomedical Informatics at Harvard Medical School, and an Institute Member at Broad Institute. He is the JS Coblyn and MB Brenner Distinguished Chair in Rheumatology/Immunology and a practicing rheumatologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Dr. Raychaudhuri is the Director for the Center for Data Sciences at Brigham and Harvard. In addition, he serves as a Visiting Professor in Genetics at the University of Manchester.
Dr. Raychaudhuri has been at the forefront of combining computational and statistical methods, high-throughput genomic technologies, and systems biology to elucidate the genetic mechanisms of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases and their functional implications.
Soumya completed his MD/PhD at Stanford University, pursued clinical training in internal medicine, and then went on to pursue subspecialty training in rheumatology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He concurrently completed postdoctoral training in human genetics at the Broad Institute with Dr. Mark Daly, before starting his own laboratory in 2010. Since then, his group has developed novel computational genomics methods, defined key cell-types in tissue inflammation, identified disease alleles inside and outside of the HLA driving disease risk, and have defined the landscape of gene regulation in immune cells.
