Soumya Raychaudhuri, MD, PhD
Dr. Soumya Raychaudhuri is an Associate Professor at Harvard Medical School and at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He is also appointed as an Associate Member at the Broad Institute and a Visiting Professor in Genetics at the University of Manchester. He matriculated into the Stanford University NIH funded MST program in 1997 after completing degrees in mathematics and biophysics at the University at Buffalo. In 2004, he completed both his medical training and his doctoral training in biomedical informatics. After completing his clinical training in Internal Medicine, he joined the rheumatology fellowship training program in 2006, and concurrently completed his postdoctoral fellowship training under Mark Daly at the Broad Institute. Since starting his own group in 2010 at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, his lab has focused on finding and fine-mapping disease alleles and understanding their significance in immune-mediated diseases. He has focused on multiple diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, type I diabetes, and tuberculosis infection. He has worked on fine-mapping HLA loci, devising integrative statistical genetics strategies to identify causal variation by taking advantage of largescale epigenetic data, and integrating genetic data with functional genomics and data on human immunological phenotypes.
