Associate Professor of Medicine, Stanford Center for Biomedical Informatics Research, Stanford University
In the quest to translate the results biomedical research into effective clinical applications, many are now trying to make sense of the large and rapidly growing amount of public biomedical data. However, substantial challenges exist in traversing the currently fragmented data landscape. In this talk, I will discuss our efforts to use Semantic Web technologies to facilitate biomedical research through the formulation, publication, integration, and exploration of facts, expert knowledge, and web services.
Trainees are invited to meet with the VanBUG speaker for open discussion of both science and career paths. This takes place 4:30-5:30pm in either the Boardroom or Lunchroom on the ground floor of the BCCRC
