Spotlight on Big Data

The WTCHG Internal Affairs committee are pleased to introduce a new seminar series : The WTCHG SPOTLIGHT 2016 series.

Our inaugural lecture will be chaired by Professor Gil McVean, who will present “Making sense of biomedical big data”, followed by talks from Dr Catherine Moyes “Using novel data sources for disease surveillance” and Dr Christoffer Nellaker “Rare diseases phenotypes from photographs”.

This seminar series aims to highlight the fantastic science being done across the centre, in order to increase intra-mural communication and collaboration. The committee is aware that, because of the breadth of research topics covered in this centre, we are not as individuals always good at connecting with colleagues within the building outside of our direct scientific niche. We hope that this series will showcase the work being done here, at a level that will be informative and interesting to all in the centre.
