Speaker Series: What Big Data Means to Your Healthtech Startup with Atul Butte MD PhD (March 17th)

Atul is a world-renowned expert in medical technology, Big Data guru and an entrepreneur. He will talk about how publicly available biomedical research data can be the basis for your startup. There’s an urgent need to translate genome-era discoveries into clinical usefulness but the difficulties in making bench-to-bedside translations have been well described. The emerging field of translational bioinformatics may help. Atul’s Institute builds and applies computational tools to convert hundreds of trillions of points of molecular, clinical and epidemiological data collected by researchers and clinicians worldwide over the past decade into new diagnostics, therapeutics and insights into diseases both rare and common.
