Speakers: Wenbiao Gan (NYU Langone Medical Center), Bruce McEwen (Rockefeller University), Eric Nestler (Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai), Amy Robinson (MIT), Bernardo Sabatini (Harvard Medical School), David Sulzer (Columbia University Medical Center)
Mapping neuronal circuitry provides important insight into mammalian health and disease. This symposium will discuss emerging tools and novel findings that address this important goal.
Friday, March 4, 2016 | 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Keynote Speakers: Sébastien Bubeck (Microsoft Research), Alex Graves (Google Research), Alexander Rakhlin (University of Pennsylvania), Ambuj Tewari (University of Michigan)
This symposium features keynote speakers in applied and theoretical machine learning as well as "spotlight" talks selected from poster abstract submissions.
February 5 - 6, 2016
This is an event that will teach graduate students and postdocs basic computer programming techniques that will help them automate repetitive tasks and data analysis in the lab.
Tuesday, October 27, 2015 | 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Speakers: Andras J. Bauer (Boehringer Ingelheim USA), Myles Fennell (Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center), Michael R. Jackson (Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute), Jonathan A. Lee (Eli Lilly), Martin Main (AstraZeneca), Friedrich Metzger (F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd), Bruce A. Posner (University of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center), Yao Shen (Columbia University), Aravind Subramanian (Broad Institute), Giulio Superti-Furga (Austrian Academy of Sciences), Susanne Swalley (Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research), Jitao David Zhang (F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd.)
This symposium aims to deepen our understanding of phenotypic drug discovery and to foster the exchange of ideas between industry-based and academic research scientists.
Keynote Speakers: Jo Handelsman (White House Office of Science and Technology Policy), W. Ian Lipkin (Columbia University), Curtis Huttenhower (Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health), and Coby Schal (North Carolina State University)
This eBriefing reviews work to map the urban metagenome to probe the microbial communities in the buildings and subways, soil and sewers in our cities.
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.
