Informatics Research Seminar: Data Integration Framework for the Identification of Complex Disease Subtypes

November 2 @ 4:00 – 5:00 pm


Speaker: ClarLynda Williams-DeVane
Presented from NCCU

Broadcast Link: Seminar

 

Abstract

The focus of this seminar is on the use of computational systems and analytics in research, specifically how research can impact and change health care and knowledge of disease. The journey from data science research to applied health sciences can be complex. Methods to capture data in the laboratory setting for future data integration and how multiple domains of data (algorithm development, modification, and application) concerning health are aggregated will be discussed.
