Seminar speaker: Wilbert van Panhuis, MD, PhD, Senior Scientific Officer and Director, NIAID Office of Data Science and Emerging Technologies at the National Institutes of Health.
Infectious and immune-mediated diseases continue to pose a major threat to human health, as illustrated by the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the continued burden of long-term diseases such as HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, Malaria, and many others. Data science has already disrupted many segments of society and hold the promise to transform the biomedical landscape as well, e.g., through precision medicine and AI-supported decision making. The impact of data science will depend on the data infrastructure, governance, and culture that our community will develop over the next decades. In this seminar Dr. Van Panhuis will highlight the vision at the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for data science in the global fight against infectious and immune-mediated diseases.
