Marianne Slight leads evidence generation products at Verily, Alphabet’s healthcare and life sciences company that is focused on bringing the promise of precision health to everyone, every day.
Prior to Verily, she led products for healthcare analytics at Google Cloud, healthcare AI at Nuance, clinical quality and population health at Optum, and perioperative and critical care at Picis. She spent 10 years at Oracle, initially as a technical consultant and then leading multidimensional analytic solutions.
Understanding that healthcare data is naturally messy, siloed, and complex, she has concentrated on bringing scalable technologies for data and analytics from other industries into healthcare and life sciences. Her goal is to enable the richness of information to be unlocked from the raw data, so it becomes useful for both research and care, while safeguarding the consent of the patient. She holds a Physics degree from the University of Glasgow, and is a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland.
