Justin Aronson, Founder, VariantExplorer.org

Justin Aronson is a 9th grade high school student and the founder of variantexplorer.org. This website assists laboratories in determining whether their genetic variant classifications conflict with the assessments of other laboratories.  The project takes data that was opened to the public by ClinVar, and presents it in a streamlined manner.  As someone who benefitted from data made publicly available by ClinVar, Justin has become interested in ways to promote and leverage data democratization.
