Thought leaders and innovators from academia, information technology companies, venture capital firms and public health institutions will gather tomorrow on the Stanford campus for the annual Big Data in Biomedicine conference.
The three-day event, which is cosponsored by Stanford and Oxford University, will explore ways to capitalize on the rapidly growing amount of biomedical data to improve the practice of medicine and human health. Keynote speakers include Todd Park, chief technology officer of the United States; Philip Bourne, PhD, associate director for data science at the National Institutes of Health; David Glazer, director of engineering at Google; Taha Kass-Hout, MD, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s first chief health informatics officer; and Vinod Khosla, MBA, founder of Khosla Ventures and a co-founder of Sun Microsystems.
Those unable to attend in person can tune in to the live webcast via the conference website. Additionally, we’ll be live tweeting the keynote talks, as well as other proceedings from the conference; you can follow the coverage on the @SUMedicine feed or by using the hashtag #bigdatamed.
