Dr. Jon Duke of Georgia Tech Research Institute and Georgia Tech College of Computing

Topic:

Health Analytics: Translating Global Data Into Precision Medicine

Precision medicine involves optimizing the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease through more precise definition of the genetic, clinical, behavioral, and environmental factors that contribute to an individual’s health.  While the idea of more personalized healthcare delivery has been around for several decades, we are only now beginning to converge the necessary data, computational power and methods, and interoperability mechanisms to turn precision medicine into a reality.  In this seminar, Dr. Duke will trace recent advances in global clinical research networks and interoperable health platforms that are ushering in this new era.
