Jyotishman Pathak

Jyotishman Pathak, Ph.D., is the Frances and John L. Loeb Professor of Medical Informatics and Chief of Division of Health Informatics, Department of Healthcare Policy & Research, at Weill Cornell Medicine. Prior to joining Weill Cornell in October 2015, I was the Professor of Biomedical Informatics at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. I joined Mayo as a Postdoctoral Fellow in 2007 with several years of research experience in biomedical knowledge representation and semantic information integration, and has been a key contributor in two major NIH/HHS funded initiatives—the Electronic Medical Records and Genomics (eMERGE) and Strategic Health IT Research Project (SHARP) projects— which have pioneered techniques for high-throughput phenotyping from the electronic medical record.

My research interest and expertise lies in developing and applying informatics methods for data mining and phenotype extraction from electronic health records (EHRs), and their applications in pharmacogenomics, comparative effectiveness research, and population health research, particularly focusing on major depressive disorders.
