Omar Metwally, MD

Principal Investigator

I’m an Internal Medicine physician who loves to create, build, and solve problems. My mission is to help as many people as possible live longer, healthier, and happier lives.

Maize and Blue run in my blood. I completed my undergraduate and medical education at the University of Michigan and am a board certified internist. I’ve been programming and building electronics since my childhood, when my grandfather sparked my love for technology and taught me the joy of inventing solutions to daily problems.

Analog Labs is a space to prototype software & hardware and study how it can be applied to benefit others. It’s my perspective on how creative, interdisciplinary work can be applied to innovate the medical profession, where people of all backgrounds are welcome to pursue the How and Why of applied research.

I hope this sparks your imagination, and I welcome all opportunities to learn from you and support your work wherever there’s opportunity for synergistic collaboration.
