Amar Das, MD, PhD

IBM Research
Director, Learning Health Systems
Cambridge, Massachusetts
Amar Das joined IBM in 2016 as a Director in IBM's Healthcare and Life Sciences research organization.  Amar is advancing the healthcare research agenda at IBM by proposing, modeling, and executing clinical studies and clinical trials of IBM solutions within healthcare. The research focuses on new statistical, computational, and regulatory approaches to the assessment, deployment, and adoption of these solutions.  The overall goal is to develop a learning health system that engages providers, patients, researchers and other stakeholders in continually evaluating the effectiveness of interventions, improving health outcomes, and delivering high value care.

Prior to joining IBM Research, Amar was a faculty member at Stanford University Medical School and the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth.  At Dartmouth, he also served as Director of Biomedical Informatics within the Department of Biomedical Data Science, which he cofounded, and Director of the Biomedical Informatics Core within the SYNERGY Clinical and Translational Science Institute.  He also initiated and led the Informatics Collaboratory at Dartmouth, which engaged end users and stakeholders in an agile process for designing and hardening research informatics software.  His labs at Dartmouth and Stanford have primarily pursued new computational methods for managing, mining and visualizing longitudinal clinical data.  His work also includes decision support systems, knowledge management, machine learning, natural language processing, blockchain and health services research.  Amar has applied his research to HIV drug resistance, immune tolerance, autism spectrum disorders, and breast cancer care.  He has trained and mentored dozens of undergraduate, graduate and medical students as part of his lab, and developed new coursework based on his informatics research.

Amar obtained a BA with Distinction in Anthropology and the Honors Program in Mathematical Methods in the Social Sciences at Northwestern University.  He received his MD and PhD in Biomedical Informatics from Stanford University.  He completed a research track residency in Psychiatry and a postdoctoral fellowship in Clinical Epidemiology at Columbia University/New York State Psychiatric Institute.   Amar has received a number of teaching and research awards during his career in academic medicine.  He also serves on numerous US and international grant review panels.
