Angel Belgard, MS, MD
Chief Medical Officer
Angel joined the team as Chief Medical Officer in 2020 after a gratifying career as an attending physician in the United States Air Force. She received her M.D. from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences and completed the integrated civilian/military pediatric residency at Wright State University School of Medicine. Following her medical training, she practiced outpatient, inpatient, and newborn medicine and was heavily involved in undergraduate and graduate medical education. She was an associate professor of pediatrics at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. Angel holds a Master’s of Science in Physiology and Biophysics from Georgetown University, with her undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia. Outside of work she has a heart for children and enjoys staying connected with friends and family, tangential learning, and instilling a love of learning in her 2 children.
Márton Münz, PhD
Senior Scientist, Computational Biology
Márton has worked as a senior bioinformatics and software development consultant at the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) in London. Prior to that he was a postdoctoral research associate at the Wellcome Trust Centre of Human Genetics, University of Oxford. With a total of 11 years of experience in the field of clinical bioinformatics, computational biology and software development, he has worked on various exciting projects involving high-throughput sequencing including clinical targeted and whole exome sequencing, immune repertoire sequencing and gene expression microarray analysis. He participated in the Mainstreaming Cancer Genetics (MCG) and the Transforming Genetic Medicine Initiative (TGMI) research programmes and was recipient of the Marie Curie COFUND Fellowship. The software tools he developed at the ICR have been applied at multiple research centres and clinics including the Royal Marsden Hospital, London where they were routinely used for testing cancer predisposition genes in breast and ovarian cancer patients.
Márton has a PhD (DPhil) in bioinformatics from the University of Oxford (with his doctoral thesis in structural bioinformatics and molecular dynamics) and an MSc in physics. He was born in Budapest, Hungary and worked as a science and culture journalist before embarking on a scientific career.
Daniel received the PhD in bioinformatics from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in 2013, then stayed at CU-Anschutz as a postdoctoral and ORISE fellow at the Altitude Research Center, and the bioinformatics lead for the Pulmonary Translational Core. Previously, he has served as a USAF medic, and received the MS in computer science from the University of Colorado and the MS in biostatistics from the University of Minnesota. Methodological research interests include regulation of gene expression, causal inference in regulatory networks, and clinical decision support. Applied research has focused on COPD, asthma, and adaptation to acute hypoxia. He is pleased to offer a wide range of bioinformatics and biostatistics services through The Bioinformatics CRO.
Daniel and his fiancee Rebecca Lee live in Denver, Colorado, where they enjoy hiking, amateur paleontology, and rescuing the stray cats who keep turning up in their yard.
