Special Seminar

 

You are invited to a Special Seminar on Tuesday, May 24th, given by Anil Jegga, DVM, MS, Associate Professor, Division of Biomedical Informatics, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Department of Pediatrics, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computing Systems, University of Cincinnati College of Engineering.

Dr. Anil Jegga will be presenting a seminar on Tuesday, May 24th, at 11:00 AM titled “The needles ARE in the haystack! Integrated omics data-driven approaches and translational medicine”

Abstract:

While translational medicine holds much promise for the healthcare industry, turning the available big data into actionable intelligence and testable hypotheses continue to be challenging. Translational medicine, an extension of evidence-based medicine, relies on the integration of many different data sources. A bonus for any of the data generation endeavors is when it can be combined with other data to generate novel hypotheses and enable new classes of questions to be explored. Additionally, reusing, recycling and repurposing existing biomedical and genomic research data could be cost-, resource-, and time-effective. It is especially valuable in rare disorders wherein by making data reusable, its value is increased many fold, and enables researchers to answer new questions crucial to health care. In this presentation, I will discuss how we are employing integrated omics data-driven strategies to support rare disease discovery research and enable the possibility of finding the “needles in the haystack”.
