Supercomputing Wales co-hosts data-driven systems medicine event

Supercomputing Wales, with Dell EMC, Atos, Advanced Research Computing at Cardiff (ARCCA), and the Systems Immunity Research Institute, co-hosted a two-day data-driven systems medicine workshop at Cardiff University on 11 and 12 June 2019.

The event welcomed 15 expert speakers from across industry and academia, including Dr. Rob Orford, Chief Scientific Advisor for Health for Welsh Government; Dr. Ceire Costelloe, Senior Lecturer at Department of Primary Care and Public Health at Imperial College London and Director of Global Digital Health Unit; and Dr. Venkatesh Pilla Reddy, Associate Principal Scientist, Modelling and Simulation, DMPK, Oncology | IMED Biotech Unit, AstraZeneca.

The workshop explored the applicability of machine learning and computational methods in systems medicine, as a first step on the path to personalised medicine.

Around 70 attendees discussed the ways that Artificial Intelligence and Systems Modelling can be applied to issues relating to medicine and healthcare using best practice to detail the synergies and interfaces between the different scientific communities and IT industry.

Those with an interest in the issues discussed at the workshop are invited to join our online community to share knowledge, best practice, and explore opportunities for collaboration.
