Tim Sweeny, MD/PhD is the co-founder and CEO of Inflammatix. Tim completed his MD/PhD at Duke University, and then spent time training in the general surgery residency program at Stanford University. While training as a surgeon, he became frustrated with the current diagnostic tools for infection. During his residency research years, he completed a postdoc MS in biomedical informatics, during which he worked with Dr. Purvesh Khatri to identify a new way to diagnose infections based on “reading” the immune system. Their work designing custom informatics algorithms for sifting through large heterogeneous datasets led to the core technology on which Inflammatix is based.
