Early Notice: Research Data and Technology Fair

You are invited to the UVa Health Sciences Library’s Research Data and Technology Fair on Friday October 25th in Jordan Hall Conference Center.

Two nationally known speakers will explore Big Data and its impact on biomedical research.  The half-day event will also include exhibitors from UVa research and data service providers, innovative initiatives at UVa, and free lunch!  See our full agenda.

The Fair’s events include:

Keynote speakers Atul Butte, MD, PhD, Stanford University, and Michael Huerta, PhD, NIH’s Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K):

“Translating a trillion points of data into therapies, diagnostics, and new insights into disease”

Dr. Butte, a bioinformatician and pediatric endocrinologist, will highlight his lab’s work on using publicly-available molecular measurements to find new uses for drugs including drug repositioning for inflammatory bowel disease, discovering new treatable inflammatory mechanisms of disease in type 2 diabetes, and the evaluation of patients presenting with whole genomes sequenced.

“Exa, Zetta, Yotta: More Data – More Progress”

Dr. Huerta will provide an overview and status report of the NIH Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) initiative, including: findings from a series of recently held workshops, synopses of funding opportunities and a vision of the manner in which BD2K will affect the scientific landscape in biomedicine.

Refreshments with UVa research and data support services:  Discover what is available to you as a researcher by visiting with our UVa exhibitors.  Find out about statistical consulting services, technology-enabled learning spaces, data visualization, bioinformatics resources, and new tools and services to help you navigate the research landscape on Grounds.

Innovations Panel:  Hear from UVa faculty about how innovations in technology and collaboration are impacting biomedical research at UVa.
