Year in Review

Translational Bioinformatics and Data Science

Tuesday, March 22, 8:30 a.m.-10:00 a.m.

The 2021 Translational Bioinformatics and Data Science Year-in-Review will highlight some of the best and most exciting research published over the last year in the field of bioinformatics, biomedical informatics, translational informatics, and biomedical data science.

Nicholas Tatonetti, PhD, FACMI
Associate Professor, Biomedical Informatics
Columbia University

Dr. Nicholas Tatonetti is associate professor of biomedical informatics in the departments of Biomedical Informatics, Systems Biology, and Medicine and is Director of Clinical Informatics at the Institute for Genomic Medicine at Columbia University. He received his PhD from Stanford University where he focused on the development of novel statistical and computational methods for observational data mining. He applied these methods to drug safety surveillance and the discovery of dangerous drug-drug interactions. His lab at Columbia is focused on expanding upon his previous work in detecting, explaining, and validating drug effects and drug interactions from large-scale observational data.

Widely published in both clinical and bioinformatics, Dr. Tatonetti is passionate about the integration of hospital data (stored in the electronic health records) and high-dimensional biological data (captured using next-generation sequencing, high-throughput screening, and other "omics" technologies). Dr. Tatonetti has been featured by the New York Times, Genome Web, and Science Careers. His work has been picked up by the mainstream and scientific media and generated thousands of news articles.
