In 2014, Dr. Schneider founded and became the Director of the Indiana University Health Precision Genomics Program. This program uses cutting-edge next generation genomic sequencing of cancer patients’ tumors to uncover novel therapies for those without standard options. To date over 1000 patients across the U.S. have had their tumors sequenced in this program. This program was a Finalist for “Advancements in Health Care” by the Indianapolis Business Journal in 2016.  Based on his clinical advances and implementation in Precision Medicine, he is now a system-wide Vice President at IU Health.
