Frontiers in Biomedical Research Symposium Takes Place May 23
The third annual Frontiers in Biomedical Research Symposium, titled The Impact of Informatics on the Understanding and Treatment of Human Disease: Visions of the Future, will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday, May 23, at the UW Health Sciences Center.
The Department of Genome Sciences and the Department of Medical Education and Biomedical Informatics are co-organizing the event.
The symposium is free and open to the public.
The symposium will address the explosion of data on the human genome, gene expression, and protein interactions, and how biomedical researchers are working with computer scientists and informatics experts on new ways to organize and think about biological data.
The morning keynote speakers will be Russ Altman, professor of genetics, bioengineering and medicine at Stanford University; and Gary Stormo, professor of genetics and director of the computational biology program at Washington University Medical School in St. Louis.
Several UW faculty members will lead discussions in various rooms in the Plaza Cafe from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. The symposium will reconvene in Hogness Auditorium at 3:30 p.m. for a panel presentation and audience participation.
The symposium closes with a reception in Health Sciences Lobby and a faculty and student research poster session.
