Congratulations to Robert Patton on receiving a Trainee Grant from the Brotman Baty Institute for Precision Medicine.

Robert’s project will involve the study of prostate cancer phenotype classification using circulating tumor DNA. He proposes use machine learning techniques to develop predictive model to analyze genomic and nucleosome features from cell-free DNA fragmentation patterns. The outcome of his work will have important applications in tumor monitoring and diagnostics for men with advanced prostate cancer.
