Health Data to Knowledge,
Where’s the Action?

January 16, 2020, 8:00 am — 9:00 am

Clopton Auditorium
Wohl Clinic
Washington University School of Medicine
4950 Children’s Place, St. Louis, MO 63110

This talk, part of the Institute for Informatics (I2) Special Speaker Seminar Series, joint with Department of Medicine’s Medicine Grand Rounds (CME), will feature Dr. Neil Sarkar, Founding Director of the Brown Center for Biomedical Informatics, Associate Professor of Medical Science, and Associate Professor of Health Services, Policy & Practice at Brown University Warren Alpert Medical School. He also serves as the Interim President and Chief Executive Officer for the Rhode Island Quality Institute. The underlying hypothesis in Dr. Sarkar’s research is that the integration of unlinked data leads to new information that can be used to inform knowledge about underpinning phenomena in biology and health. His current research includes harnessing data for supporting comparative genomic and phenomic studies of complex disease, including the development of models to predict trajectories of complex conditions, such as pregnancy and its complications.
