2013 Biomedical Informatics Symposium Poster Winners

Dr. Robert Clarke, Dean of Research at the Lombardi Cancer Center presented the best poster awards during the reception for the 2nd annual biomedical informatics symposium held October 11, 2013. The first place prize went to ICBI’s own Difei Wang (see below). The top poster winners were chosen through crowdsourcing by conference attendees, with first place receiving an iPAD mini. Dr. Wang, who was quite grateful to be selected, was also very surprised and humbly said to a small group of us, “I didn’t even vote for myself!”

Second place was a tie between two groups: one group at George Washington University on data mining of gene expression and microarray data, and the other group from Georgetown University Medical Center on the impact of pager delays on trauma teams (see below). 

The third place winner went to ICBI’s Michael Harris and team on pharmacogenomics.
