Imran was the first chief scientific officer at Freenome, where he built and led an R&D team spanning molecular biology, computational biology, and machine learning to develop non-invasive blood-based screening protocols for early cancer detection. He also served for over five years in roles of increasing responsibility at Counsyl (now Myriad Women's Health).
He earned bachelor's degrees in electrical engineering and computer science from UC Berkeley and a Ph.D. in computer science from Stanford University, where his research on large-scale machine learning systems for drug discovery was co-advised by Vijay Pande and Daphne Koller. In his spare time, Imran builds fast computers, drives fast cars and skis and bikes at a much more reasonable pace than he did in his blithe youth.
