There’s an urgency about Stephen Kingsmore. Which is not to say he’s in a rush.
He’s the CEO of the Rady’s Children’s Genomics Institute. He and his team have two world records to their name for the incredible speed of diagnosing a rare disease using whole genome sequencing. The latest is 19.5 hours.
Dr. Kingsmore feels they can even shave time off that. They’re shooting for a new record of somewhere around 12 hours.
