Mr Chris Wigley

Chief Executive Officer, Genomics England

Speaker's biography

Chris Wigley is the CEO of Genomics England, which exists to push insights from cutting edge genomics data analytics into routine medical care. As the national steward of 40 petabytes of human genome data from 100,000 volunteers, and a unique partnership with the NHS, Genomics England’s goal is to improve patient outcomes while lowering the cost of healthcare provision. Through the COVID crisis Chris was seconded as Senior Responsible Officer for Data to NHSX, and Genomics England launched a major research programme into the genomic drivers of severity of response to COVID. Chris was previously COO at QuantumBlack, a bespoke Machine Learning and AI technology company, and a Partner at McKinsey working on technology strategy topics. He is a trustee of the New Entrepreneurs Foundation, and on the Advisory Board of deep-tech VC Entrepreneur First. He previously worked for the UK Foreign Office, establishing and leading analytical work at the Counter Terrorism Policy Department to counter chemical, biological and nuclear terror threats. Chris lives in London with his wife Tara and their three children.

Professor Pearse Keane

Professor of Artificial Medical Intelligence, University College London Institute of Ophthalmology and Consultant Ophthalmologist, Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Speaker's biography

Pearse Keane is Professor of Artificial Medical Intelligence at UCL Institute of Ophthalmology, and a consultant ophthalmologist at Moorfields Eye Hospital, London. He is originally from Ireland and received his medical degree from University College Dublin (UCD), graduating in 2002. In 2016, he initiated a formal collaboration between Moorfields Eye Hospital and Google DeepMind, with the aim of developing artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms for the earlier detection and treatment of retinal disease. In August 2018, the first results of this collaboration were published in the journal, Nature Medicine. In May 2020, he jointly led work, again published in Nature Medicine, to develop an early warning system for agerelated macular degeneration (AMD), by far the commonest cause of blindness in many countries. In October 2019, he was included on the Evening Standard Progress1000 list of most influential Londoners (https://www.standard.co.uk/news/the1000) and in June 2020, he was profiled in The Economist (https://www.economist.com/technology11950302.1 quarterly/2020/06/11/the-potential-and-thepitfalls-of-medical-ai). In 2020, he was listed on the “The Power List” by The Ophthalmologist magazine, a ranking of the Top 100 most influential people in the world of ophthalmology (https://theophthalmologist.com/powerlist/2020).
