GBM Seminar Series

The Icahn Institute at Mount Sinai and Nature Reviews Genetics have launched a new seminar series, Genomics, Big Data and Medicine (GBM).

Our seminars are dedicated to the critical intersection of GBM, delving into “bleeding edge” technology and approaches that will deeply shape the future. The seminar format will be an hour lecture followed by 30 minutes of moderated Q&A. We seek to foster lively and thought-provoking dialogue to hash out the best ways to make the application of genomics technologies and analysis of big data transformative in personal medical care.

Past speakers include Dr. Eric Green, Director of the National Human Genome Research Institute, Dr. George Church, Director of, and Dr. Eric Topol, Director of the Scripps Translational Science Institute


Speaker: Dr. Trey Ideker, Professor of Bioengineering and Medicine at the University of California, San Diego 

Date: Friday, May 20, 2016

Time: 1:00pm - 3:00pm EST

Location: Hatch Auditorium, 1468 Madison Ave at 100th street, 2nd Floor

Dr. Trey Ideker’s current research focuses on developing the right experimentation and analysis to automatically assemble maps of pathways. Dr. Ideker founded influential bioinformatic tools including Cytoscape, a popular network analysis platform and, in 2006, was named one of the Top 10 Innovators by Technology Review Magazine.
