The Institute for Informatics and the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine are pleased to announce our inaugural Symposium for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (SAIM) seminar series. This symposium is designed to be a forum for the discussion of revolutionary healthcare technologies and the ongoing development of innovative healthcare technologies across our campuses, with the goal of uniting people with similar interests and fostering collaboration and growth. We welcome clinicians and trainees from all backgrounds and at all levels who are interested in learning more about translational artificial intelligence, machine learning and healthcare information technology. This year, our first seminar will be delivered by Philip R.O. Payne, PhD, FACMI, FAMIA, on September 22, 2020.

Dr. Payne is the Janet and Bernard Becker Professor of Medicine, Founding Director of the Institute for Informatics, Associate Dean for Health Information and Data Science, and Chief Data Scientist at Washington University in St. Louis. He also holds appointments as a Professor of Medicine in the Division of General Medical Sciences within the School of Medicine, and as a Professor of Computer Science and Engineering in the McKelvey School of Engineering and Applied Science.

Dr. Payne is an elected fellow of the American College of Medical Informatics (ACMI) and the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) and also holds leadership appointments on numerous national steering, editorial, and advisory committees, including efforts associated AMIA, Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Library of Medicine (NLM), and the National Center for Advancing Translational Science (NCATS).

His research portfolio broadly focuses upon the areas of translational bioinformatics, clinical research informatics, and applied clinical informatics.
