Paul DePodesta, one of the men who brought “Moneyball” to Major League Baseball, just joined Scripps Translational Science Institute, where he will use his data-analyzing prowess to help drive transformation in medicine.
“Paul brings a valuable outsider’s perspective to medicine that will help make the field more precise and more predictive through the analysis of the vast amounts of individualized data now being collected through genetic testing, wireless sensors and other technologies,” said Eric Topol, MD, director of STSI, in a statement. “We are excited to have him work with our informatics data scientists to jumpstart the ‘Moneyball’ of medicine.”
