The paper published in the Lancet was the focus of over 300 news stories, became one of the most cited articles in clinical medicine that year, and was featured in the Genome Exhibition at the Smithsonian in DC. The team extended the approach in 2011 to a family of four and now routinely applies genome sequencing to the diagnosis of patients at Stanford hospital where Dr Ashley directs the Clinical Genome Service and the Center for Inherited Cardiovascular Disease. Dr Ashley was the first co-chair of the steering committee of the NIH Undiagnosed Diseases Network. He was a recipient of the National Innovation Award from the American Heart Association as well as the NIH Director’s New Innovator Award. He is Senior Associate Editor of Circulation Cardiovascular Genetics.Dr Ashley is Principal Investigator of the MyHeart Counts study, developed in collaboration with Apple Inc in 2015, and one of the fastest recruiting studies ever launched. In 2016, he was part of the winning team of the $75m One Brave Idea competition. He is co-founder of Personalis Inc, a genome scale genetic diagnostics company and advises many other biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. In 2013, Dr Ashley was recognized by the Obama White House for his contributions to Personalized Medicine.
