Annual Biomedical Informatics Symposium

The Innovation Center for Biomedical Informatics hosts an annual scientific symposium at Georgetown University. The 4th annual event was held on Friday, October 16, 2015, at the Georgetown University Hotel and Conference Center. Isaac Kohane, MD, PhD from Harvard University delivered the keynote address at this year’s symposium, which showcased exciting advances in the areas of molecular medicine, health data analytics, and related state-of-the-art technologies. The free, one-day event included talks by academic, industry, and government leaders in clinical and translational sciences who highlighted applications of informatics science and tools to advance precision medicine. The symposium brought together a dynamic community of innovators, research scientists, clinicians, program managers, educators, and students to exchange ideas and learn new methodologies. This event also provided an opportunity to network and socialize with colleagues during the evening reception and poster session. To see highlights from this year's event read more...
