Casey Overby Taylor Promoted to Associate Professor
The Institute for Computational Medicine is pleased to announce that the Johns Hopkins University has promoted core faculty member Casey Overby Taylor to Associate Professor of Medicine. Dr. Taylor holds a joint appointment with the Department of Biomedical Engineering. She is also a member of the Hopkins Population Center and the Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare.
Dr. Taylor holds a Master’s degree in biotechnology from the University of Pennsylvania and a PhD in biomedical informatics from the University of Washington. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship in informatics at Columbia University, funded by the National Library of Medicine, before joining Johns Hopkins University in 2016.
Dr. Taylor’s research draws from biomedical informatics and biomedical data science to address the challenge of incorporating digital health tools into clinical research and healthcare practices. In 2019, she received a Microsoft Investigator Fellowship. In 2020, she received a Genomic Innovator Award from the National Human Genome Research Institute, an early-career award that provides recipients with flexibility to pursue innovative research within a broad scientific area. This funding allows Dr. Taylor to develop and evaluate methods to incorporate genomic results in clinical decision support.
2020 also marked the year that Dr. Taylor joined the Institute for Computational Medicine. Dr. Taylor’s inquisitive, reflective style has been a welcome addition to the institute.
