  • Sauber Lecture: Translating a Trillion Points of Data into Therapies, Diagnostics, and New Insights into Disease Download Sauber Lecture: Translating a Trillion Points of Data into Therapies, Diagnostics, and New Insights into Disease to my desktop calendar

    May 23, 2015 9:00 AM - 9:45 AM Atul Butte, PhD ’91 MMS’95 MD’95, Director, Institute for Computational Health Sciences and Professor of Pediatrics at the University of California, San Francisco There is an urgent need to translate genome-era discoveries into clinical utility, but the difficulties in making bench-to-bedside translations have been well-described. The nascent field of translational bioinformatics may help. Dr. Butte's lab builds and applies tools that convert trillions of points of molecular, clinical, and epidemiological data—measured by researchers and clinicians over the past decade and now commonly termed “big data”—into diagnostics, therapeutics, and new insights into disease. Dr. Butte, a bioinformatician and pediatric endocrinologist, will highlight how publicly available molecular measurements can be applied to find new uses for drugs and how the next generation of biotech companies might even start in your garage. http://www.brown.edu/academics/medical/gateway/alumni/reunion/schedule2015 Smith-Buonanno, Room 106 Medical School, Open to the Public, Audience, Cross-campus academic topics, Biology and Medicine, Lectures, Conferences, and Meetings, Brown250, Lectures

Scientists are calling this powerful new technology for editing genes the “holy grail” of genetic engineering and a breakthrough in the fight against genetic disease. Dr. Doudna has been proclaimed a “rock star in the science world” by NPR, and her work has been honored with numerous awards—most recently the 2014 Lurie Prize in Biomedical Sciences from the National Institutes of Health and the 2014 Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences. Learn about this groundbreaking discovery and the wide-ranging implications for the future of biology and medicine. http://www.brown.edu/academics/medical/gateway/alumni/reunion/schedule2015 Building for Environmental Research and Teaching (BERT), Carmichael Auditorium Medical School, Open to the Public, Audience, Cross-campus academic topics, Biology and Medicine, Lectures, Conferences, and Meetings, Brown250, Lectures
