As a part of Sg2’s Intelligence team, Justin leads the medicine service lines and the rapidly evolving area of precision medicine. He works closely with Jay Prystowsky, MD, on the surgery service lines and regularly collaborates with Henry Soch on Sg2’s technology team. Justin develops/delivers presentations, publications, webinars, analytic projects, podcasts and online posts to help clients navigate new care models and drive value by strategically managing margins.
Justin’s future-focused, broad research scope includes clinical, payment, policy, technological, economic and workforce trends related to clinical genetics, transplant, bariatrics, infectious disease, endocrinology, obesity, general surgery, dermatology, rheumatology, gastroenterology, urology, pulmonology, nephrology and precision medicine—areas where he also serves as a subject matter expert to assist analytics and consulting team colleagues drive value for Sg2 members.
Justin has more than a decade of experience as an academic research scientist conducting biomedical research in emerging fields of inquiry that include genomics, biochemistry, data science, systems biology, statistical genetics, RNA interference (RNAi), microRNAs and CRISPR. He has managed teams of scientists and collaborations to publish and present cutting-edge research that increased the predictive power of personalized genomics.
Prior to joining Sg2, Justin earned a PhD in molecular biology from Northwestern University, where he also served as a postdoctoral fellow. He has also worked at UC Berkeley and MIT’s Whitehead Institute. Justin earned his AB in biological sciences from the University of Chicago.
While at Northwestern, Justin earned the Rappaport Award for Research Excellence and was selected to serve as a Malkin Scholar for Cancer Research in the Cellular and Molecular Basis of Disease Training Program and as a Chicago Biomedical Consortium Scholar. In addition, Justin holds certificates in data science from the McCormick School of Engineering and from the Management for Scientists and Engineers “mini-MBA” program at Kellogg. His findings have been published in top-tier scientific journals, and he has presented and won awards at conferences organized by the National Centers for Systems Biology and the Genetics Society of America.
