From treatment to prevention: challenges in data management and analysis
Biomedical research has traditionally focused on disease diagnosis and treatment. With the recent surge of data from healthy citizens or from patients in the post-treatment phase, the new horizon in healthcare lies in better detecting signs of disease onset or in avoiding long-term relapses with the ultimate goal of preventing both.
[BC]2 will host a one-day ELIXIR Innovation and SME Forum entitled “Building the learning ecosystem of health: from data tracking to preventive medicine” on 13 September. The aim of the day is to foster knowledge sharing and collaborations between academia and industry around the technologies, data science and learnings’ implementation associated with preventive medicine and treatment follow-up.
The Programme Committee has put together a diverse schedule with talks from high-profile speakers, interactive panel discussions, and selected talks from across the biomedical research and healthcare ecosystem. The aim of the day will be to explore solutions to better understand the different components of the learning ecosystem of health and preventive medicine, from technologies to track data and data management, to data integration, analysis and translation into preventive guidelines and healthcare measures.
