Keynote Speakers: Rayid Ghani (University of Chicago), Brian Kingsbury (IBM), Jorge Nocedal (Northwestern University)
Chief Data Scientist for the 'Obama for America' 2012 re-election campaign, and other experts, explore the latest innovations in harnessing the power of big data through machine learning.
Thursday, March 20, 2014 | 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Speaker: Sean F. Brady (The Rockefeller University), Steven Edgar (MIT), Justin Nodwell (University of Toronto), Kang Zhou (MIT)
Secondary metabolites or idiolites play many roles in biological systems, including communication, defense and signaling. This symposium takes a systems biology approach to explore their biological effects and potential benefits for human health.
Monday, November 4, 2013 | 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM
Speakers: Anirban Banerjee (National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, NIH), Carole A. Bewley (National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, NIH), Pierre Escoubas (VenomeTech), Bryan Fry (The University of Queensland, Australia), Mandë Holford (Hunter College, CUNY / American Museum of Natural History), Inés Ibañez-Tallon (The Rockefeller University), Baldomero M. Olivera (University of Utah), Mark E. Siddall (American Museum of Natural History), Beatrix Ueberheide (NYU Langone Medical Center)
Panelists: Yvonne M. Angell (Ipsen), Les P. Miranda (Amgen), Hazel H. Szeto (Stealth Peptides Inc.)
Spiders, snakes, scorpions, sea snails and leeches produce over 10 million compounds offering great potential for venom-based drug discovery. This symposium investigates genomic, proteomic, and transcriptomic approaches to harness venom compounds.
Monday, October 21, 2013 | 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM
Speakers: Sean Hennessy (University of Pennsylvania), Philip Lazarus (Washington State University College of Pharmacy), A. David Rodrigues (Bristol-Myers Squibb), Robert A. Roth (Michigan State University), Andrea Gaedigk (Children's Mercy Hospital), Jack Uetrecht (University of Toronto), R. Scott Obach (Pfizer), Joseph A. Ware (Genentech), Ida S. Owens (National Institute of Child and Human Development, NIH)
Drug discovery involves assays to predict potential drug-drug interactions, and predicting clinical toxicity is complicated. This symposium examines in vivo, in vitro, and in silico approaches and explores their integration for evaluating human risk.
Organizers: Mandë Holford (Hunter College, CUNY; American Museum of Natural History), Steven Gross (Weill Cornell Medical College), and Jennifer Henry (The New York Academy of Sciences)
Keynote Speaker: Baldomero M. Olivera (University of Utah)
Venomous animals, including spiders, snakes, scorpions, sea snails, leeches, and others, produce millions of bioactive compounds, offering enormous potential for venom-based drug discovery.
Organizers: Myrtle Davis (National Cancer Institute, NIH), Raymond A. Kemper (Merck), Marla Weetall (PTC Therapeutics), and Jennifer Henry (The New York Academy of Sciences)
This eBriefing explores approaches to predict potential drug–drug interactions before clinical trials in humans.
Organizers: Johanne Morne (New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute), Sonja Noring (New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute), Cheryl Smith (New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute), AIDS Institute Social Media Workgroup (New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute), Brooke Grindlinger (The New York Academy of Sciences), and Kerstin Hofmeyer (The New York Academy of Sciences)
This eBriefing looks at the impact of digital technologies on clinical care, especially for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections, exploring eHealth strategies for patient-centered care and clinical decision support.
Speakers: Eric Lai (Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center), Allison Abbott (Marquette University), Victor Ambros (University of Massachusetts Medical School), Gregory J. Hannon (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories, Howard Hughes Medical Institute), Oliver Hobert (Columbia University Medical Center), and Gary Ruvkun (Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School)
This eBriefing features Victor Ambros and Gary Ruvkun, recipients of the 2012 Dr. Paul Janssen Award for Biomedical Research for their role in the discovery of microRNA. Recent research on microRNA is also described.
Translational Medicine Initiative
The Translational Medicine Initiative represents a three-year partnership between the New York Academy of Sciences and the Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation to support the translation of basic science research into clinical applications.
