Matt Might

Professor, University of Alabama at Birmingham
Invited Speaker

Matt Might has been the Director of the Hugh Kaul Precision Medicine Institute at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) since 2017. At UAB, Matt has grown research-based consultation service for individualized care into a precision care clinical program serving the needs of patients for the most challenging cases in medicine. To serve this patient population, the Institute has developed mediKanren — a biomedical artificial intelligence agent primarily intended for individualized drug repurposing, but also useful for challenging diagnostic odysseys and other applications. Over the past three years, deploying this agent with front-line clinicians has significantly guided the design, the interface and the engineering of this agent and its use in practice.

From 2016 to 2018, Matt was a Strategist in the Executive Office of the President in The White House. In 2015, Matt joined the faculty of the Department of Biomedical Informatics at the Harvard Medical School, first as Visiting Professor and since 2017 as Senior Lecturer.
