Biochemist; Founder & CEO of Impossible Foods

Notable accomplishments of Pat's research group at Stanford included discovering the biochemical mechanism by which HIV inserts its genes into human cells, developing tools that for the first time enabled the expression patterns of whole genomes to be detected and profiled, and pioneering the use of gene expression patterns to improve classification, diagnosis and individualized treatment of human cancers.
