Brendan Frey is a Professor at the University of Toronto and a cofounder of Deep Genomics. He has made fundamental contributions in the areas of machine learning and genome biology, most recently on using machine learning models of splicing to understand how genetic variation leads to disease (Science, January 2015) and on the DeepBind method for predicting DNA- and RNA-protein binding (Nature Biotechnology, August 2015). Dr. Frey has received numerous distinctions and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and a John C. Polanyi Fellow. He recently co-founded a University of Toronto spinoff, Deep Genomics, which is addressing the trillion dollar "genotype-phenotype gap". Dr. Frey has consulted for several industrial research and development laboratories in Canada, the United States and England, and has served on the Technical Advisory Board of Microsoft Research. His former students and postdoctoral fellows include professors, industrial researchers and developers at universities and industrial laboratories from across the United States, Canada and Europe.
