Last fall, we hosted our 6th Annual Big Data in Biomedicine Symposium at the Georgetown University Conference Center and Hotel. The one-day event included talks by academic, industry, and government leaders in clinical and translational sciences who will highlight technologies, applications of informatics science and tools to advance precision medicine. This symposium brought together a dynamic community of innovators, research scientists, clinicians, educators, and students to exchange ideas and learn new methodologies. Followed by an opportunity to network and socialize with colleagues during the evening reception and poster session. This symposium this year included sessions on cancer - networks, machine learning, artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies in healthcare and precision medicine as well as a panel discussion on current and future needs for education programs in biomedical informatics and data science. We were delighted to have Dr. Patricia Brennan, NLM Director as our keynote speaker.
We were also delighted to offer for the first time a pre-symposium workshop entitled "Bioinformatics for Immuno-Oncology and Translational Research" presented by Dr. Yuriy Gusev .
