The Icahn Institute at Mount Sinai and Nature Reviews Genetics are pleased to announce the launch of a new seminar series, Genomics, Big Data and Medicine (GBM).
Our seminars will be dedicated to the critical intersection of GBM, delving into 'bleeding edge' technology & approaches that will deeply shape the future. The seminar format will be an hour lecture followed by 30 minutes of moderated Q&A. We seek to foster lively and thought-provoking dialogue to hash out the best ways to make the application of genomics technologies and analysis of big data transformative in personal medical care.
