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 PersonalGenomes.org, and Dr. Eric Topol, Director of the Scripps Translational Science Institute
Speaker: Dr. Nancy Cox, Professor and Director, Vanderbilt Genetics Institute and and Division of Genetic Medicine
Date: Monday, June 12, 2017
Time: 1:00pm - 3:00pm EST
Location: Davis Auditorium, 1470 Madison Ave at 101st street, 2nd Floor
Dr. Cox is a quantitative human geneticist with a long-standing research program in identifying and characterizing the genetic component of common human diseases. Her current research is focused on large-scale integration of genomics with other “-omics” data, as well as biobank and electronic medical records data. Her work has also been funded to develop methods for the analysis of 1,000 Genomes Project data as well as GTEx Project data.
