  • CANCELLED: Board Meeting

    January 23, 2018  6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

    Jess will be unexpectedly out of town on the date of our schedule January board meeting, and others have also indicated that they have conflicts. With no specific topics on the agenda, we have decided to cancel the meeting.

    Please note that this makes it even more important to submit reports covering your committee's activities since our last meeting in November, for others to stay up to date. You can upload them now to the January folder on the google drive. I will read through them all and send out a summary at the end of January, so please indicate if there's any actions or feedback being requested from the rest of the for me to call out.

Big Data is becoming one of the most significant advancements of the last decade. With data showing the ability to contribute to everything from election predictions to transportation services, extracting useful information from extremely large datasets is transforming multiple scientific fields, and the biological sciences are no different. Billions of data points on genes, proteins and other molecules, as well as large volumes of patient data, can give us precious insights to better predict and treat disease. Over the next decade, discoveries through the use of computational models will allow us to leverage that data into meaningful information, contributing to the improvement of healthcare globally.
