"Big Data in Molecular Medicine” – one theme, many angles

[BC]2 will feature five plenary sessions, each composed of an opening lecture by an invited keynote speaker followed by short presentations based on submitted abstracts. While we are still waiting for abstract submissions for these sessions, we are happy to introduce our keynote speakers:

  •  Peter Kharchenko, Harvard Medical School, USA
    “Joint analysis of heterogeneous single-cell dataset collections”
  • Roy Kishony, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, ISR
    “Predicting Antibiotic Resistance”
  • Danielle Posthuma, VU Amsterdam, NEL
  • Thomas Kepler, Boston University School of Medicine, USA
    “Cellular and Clonal Dynamics in Humoral Immunity”
  • Yves Moreau, KU Leuven, BEL
    “Bayesian matrix factorization and deep learning data fusion for drug-target interaction prediction”

A special highlight will be the [BC]2 keynote lecture given by Susan Holmes (Stanford School of Medicine, USA), who will share her work on Statistical Modelling and Computational Biology with the audience.
