Program Overview

The Lorry I. Lokey Center for Life Sciences and Engineering (LS&E), Technion – Israel Institute of Technology is pleased to invite you to participate!

The first Biomedical Informatics symposium was successfully held on December 2017  and presented various interdisciplinary aspects of this area attracting international speakers and diverse audience. Please kindly see the program of this earlier conference here:

The second conference in this series, will focus on exciting developments in the field in terms of new experimental and data science methodologies, and in terms of real life applications. As medical research and healthcare become increasingly dependent on big data, biomedical informatics is promising to impact major biomedical questions and challenges from infectious diseases through genetic disorders to cancer.
Inherently though, progress in this field requires interdisciplinarity across basic research in Biology, Computer Science and Medicine intertwined with collaborations with healthcare providers, industry leaders, entrepreneurs and even governmental agencies. The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers from academia, health care and key innovators from the industry for two days of stimulating presentations on range of topics addressing this theme and hope that the meeting will thereby foster new initiatives and partnerships.

We expect that the conference will attract an interdisciplinary audience of students, postdocs and faculty from across the country and internationally.
