About Syndromic

About Dr. Patel

Vishal Patel, MD PhD

My search for the patterns underlying human health began with my studies of bioinformatics, where I explored the molecular networks underlying glioblastoma (here) and colorectal cancer (here). I subsequently contributed evidence that our signs & symptoms could be agnostically mined to detect known syndromes from large datasets (here). At Syndromic, I hope to bring the power of informatics and network analysis to bear on each individual's health journey.

I earned my MD and my PhD (Genetics) from Case Western Reserve University and a certificate in Ayurveda from Gujarat Ayurved University. I am currently the Vice President of Wellness Science at Sensei. I live in Mill Valley, CA, with my wife, a medical anthropologist.
