September 30 - October 1, 2015
Keynote Speakers: Ian Ferguson (ARM), Christian Stammel (Wearable Technologies AG)
Continuous health monitoring using wearable sensors, mobile devices, and apps is becoming a powerful tool for assessing critical physiological parameters. The vast accumulation of real-time biometric data obtained from these technologies may hold invaluable clues for treating some of the most devastating human diseases.

Blaser (New York University Langone Medical Center), Ilana Brito (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Jane Carlton (New York University Center for Genomics and Systems Biology), Rumi Chunara (New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering), Laurie Garrett (Council on Foreign Relations), Jack Gilbert (Argonne National Laboratory), Jo Handelsman (White House Office of Science and Technology Policy), Curtis Huttenhower (Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health), W. Ian Lipkin (Center for Infection and Immunity, Columbia University), Juan Maestre (The University of Texas at Austin), Christopher Mason (Institute for Computational Biomedicine, Weill Cornell Medical College), Paula Olsiewski (Alfred P. Sloan Foundation), Rachel Poretsky (University of Illinois at Chicago), Coby Schal (North Carolina State University Department of Entomology)
Efforts to map all of the genetic information of microbial communities that make up the urban genome—from kiosks and subways, to soil and sewage—seek to improve the health and productivity of the built environments in which we live.
Organizers: Michael Foley (Tri-Institutional Therapeutics Discovery Institute), Ralph Garippa (Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center), David Mark (F. Hoffmann-La Roche), Lorenz Mayr (Astra Zeneca), John Moffat (Genentech), Marco Prunotto (F. Hoffmann-La Roche), and Sonya Dougal (The New York Academy of Sciences)
This eBriefing considers the merits of phenotypic drug discovery, which is experiencing a renaissance of interest. The method aims to find therapeutically useful compounds by screening thousands of substances for functional cellular outputs.
Organizers: Mercedes Beyna (Pfizer), John Hambor (Boehringer Ingelheim), Nilufer Seth (Pfizer), Erick Young (Boehringer Ingelheim), and Sonya Dougal (The New York Academy of Sciences)
Keynote Speaker: Stanislav Dusko Ehrlich (French National Institute for Agricultural Research; King's College London)
This eBriefing focuses on the causal relationships between gut microbiota and intestinal health and disease.
Organizers: Glen de Vries (Medidata Solutions), John J. Mastrototaro (Medtronic), Bernard Munos (FasterCures), Fiorenzo Omenetto (Tufts University), Leonard Sacks (U.S. Food and Drug Administration), Melanie Brickman Stynes (The New York Academy of Sciences), Brooke Grindlinger (The New York Academy of Sciences), and Daniel Radiloff (The New York Academy of Sciences)
This eBriefing considers the use of data from wearable sensors and mobile devices in medical care and clinical trials and looks at security and regulatory issues for health data.
Keynote Speaker: Frank Hu (Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health)
This eBriefing explores research on metabolic health from several disciplines and looks at how different types of data combine to explain physiology and disease.
