Stanford Feature Interview: Dr. Plavi Mittal, Founder & CEO, In-Depth Genomics
Dr. Plavi Mittal earned her Ph.D. in Biology from Brandeis University, and did her postdoctoral research in molecular oncology at Harvard Medical School. She was also a management consultant at a global consulting firm, where she worked with leading pharmaceutical companies.
After a family member was diagnosed with a rare muscular dystrophy, LGMD2B/Miyoshi, Dr. Mittal helped create the Jain Foundation. Over the last 12 years, she has led the JF team as President & CEO, and together, they partnered with dysferlinopathy researchers to realize gene therapy clinical trials and the hope for a cure. Repeatedly, Dr. Mittal has seen patients with rare disease struggle to reach a diagnosis and find a treatment best for them, despite the scientific breakthroughs advancing therapies for their condition.
