By making authoritative information more accessible, assisting the broader scientific community, and leveraging Google’s powerful technologies, we can help people live healthier lives.

Google Health has made major advances in healthcare research, such as detecting eye disease more quickly and accurately than experts, planning cancer radiotherapy treatment in seconds rather than hours, and working to detect patient deterioration before it happens with electronic records.
Fundamental research is at the core of Google Health – the multidisciplinary team collaborates with partners to publish novel research in renowned scientific journals. They then work to apply this research into the medical field through clinical hardware and products developed in Google. Working alongside colleagues across Google, you’ll help make this vision a reality.
Use expertise in health equity, public health, and social determinants of health to advise teams across Google in identifying opportunities to mitigate health disparities and immediate and long-term actions to execute in product and research plans, and support teams in tracking progress through quantitative and qualitative metrics.
