Rethinking Pharmacogenomics in the Era of Biomedical Data Science

This talk, part of the Institute for Informatics (I2) Special Speaker Seminar Series, will feature Dr. Brian Athey, Michael A. Savageau Collegiate Professor and founding Chair of the Department of Computational Medicine & Bioinformatics in the University of Michigan Medical School. He also has appointments as a Professor of Psychiatry and of Internal Medicine; he was founder and Co-Director (2015-2018) of the Michigan Institute for Data Science (MIDAS). Dr. Athey’s recent research interests are in the creation and use of bioinformatics pipelines and machine learning methods to radically improve the efficacy of psychiatric pharmacogenomics — allowing patients to take the most effective drug for their illness and suffer the fewest side effects. He is also developing new high-throughput methods to analyze images of genes in the context of the cellular nucleus to better understand the machinery of bioinformatics in context.

AMIA 2019 Annual Symposium

This year, the American Medical Informatics Association’s annual symposium, the foremost symposium for the science and practice of biomedical informatics, revolves around the theme “Informatics: From Data to Knowledge to Action.” Topics of interest span the spectrum from deciphering the underpinning phenomena of disease, to managing information and communications for improving patient care, to tracking the health of populations. The event runs November 16 – 20, 2019.
