Andy Conrad, PhD, oversees a number of "moonshot" projects at Google[x] and provides overall guidance on various scientific and hardware products and research. Previously, he was Chief Scientific Officer of Laboratory Corporation of America (LapCorp).
Dr. Conrad also co-founded the National Genetics Institute, where he served as Chief Scientific Officer, And the California Health and Longevity Institute (CHLI). In addition, he serves as the Chief Scientific Advisor of the North Carolina Research Campus (NCRC), an academic collaboration between Duke University, University of North Carolina and North Carolina State University.

"We look forward to exploring how smart software could help give surgeons the information they need at just the right time during an operation," said Andy Conrad, head of the life sciences team at Google.

The particles would remain in the blood and report back continuously on what they find over time, said Andrew Conrad, head of life sciences at Google X, while a wearable sensor could track the particles by following their magnetic fields and collecting data on their movement through the body.
The goal is to get a fuller picture of the patient's health than the snapshot that's obtained when a doctor draws a single sample of blood for tests that aren't comprehensive enough to spot the early stages of many forms of cancer.
"We want to make it simple and automatic and not invasive," Conrad added. Like Google is doing in the contact lens project, the company is here looking for ways to proactively monitor health and prevent disease, rather than wait to diagnose problems, he said.
Data from the sensor could be uploaded or stored on the Internet until it can be interpreted by a doctor, he said. That could raise questions about privacy or the security of patient data. But when asked if Google could use the information for commercial purposes, Conrad said, "We have no interest in that."
Conrad described the project during an appearance at a tech industry conference organized by the Wall Street Journal. He said the team working on the nanoparticle project includes a cancer specialist and other doctors, as well as electrical and mechanical engineers and an astrophysicist who has been advising on how to track the particles through the body.
Google is looking for partners who would license the technology and bring products to market. "Our partners would take care of all that stuff. We're the inventors and creators of the technology," Conrad said.

Andrew Conrad, head of Google Life Sciences division, said it would be to the body what an oil change is to a car.
"Can you imagine changing your oil when the engine is broken? said Conrad, who made the announcement at the Wall Street Journal Digital conference.
Conrad said it's time for healthcare to become more proactive than reactive.
Google is working on a wearable device that would detect changes by monitoring nanoparticles in a person's body. That way, they could detect minor swings in tumor cells and other diseases before it becomes a problem, Conrad said.
