Power Profiles: Madhuri Hegde

sponsored by Revvity

Madhuri Hegde is Senior Vice President and Chief Scientific Officer at Revvity, serving as the internal and external face of Revvity’s scientific strategy. Hegde is also a board-certified diplomate in clinical molecular genetics and the Head of Revvity Omics – a network of laboratories offering services across the globe. In this latter role, she guides her team to provide families and healthcare partners with access to innovative multiomic-derived diagnostic technologies in over 155 countries.

Hegde is a recognized and highly respected leader in the field of clinical genomics. She has presented over 100 keynote presentations at national and international conferences, and is credited as author or co-author on more than 150 peer-reviewed publications and eight book chapters. For more than two decades, Hegde’s research in neuromuscular disorders has contributed to a number of pharmaceutical drug discovery programs, such as The Lantern Project – in which Revvity Omics is an active partner. Her work and experience follows a larger movement reflecting the rise of precision medicine – a drive towards more omics-based testing, and even beyond.

Hegde’s interest in genomics was sparked at an early age, and it was a video on DNA extraction during a sixth-grade science class that proved to be the seed that would grow into a flourishing career. Hegde is grateful to her family for nurturing her initial curiosity, as well as to have had many fantastic mentors – many of whom are leaders in their fields. Having benefited from the support shown to her by her own mentors, Hegde is a real believer of “paying it forward” – always making time for her colleagues, direct-reports, and other scientists-in-training who look to her. As a woman in science, she feels strongly about supporting other women in her field, whether that’s through one-to-one mentorship or by contributing to Revvity’s Women’s Employee Resource Group.

Hegde is inspired by the spirit of humans to keep exploring. She is passionate and perpetually curious; a leader who is energized by uniting people to harness science to positively impact human health. It comes as little surprise that this passion extends to her hobbies, as her fiery support for Indian cricket and keen sense of competition are well known to her family and colleagues alike.
