Centre for bioinformatics and biostatistics presents a seminar within bioinformatics.

About the speaker

Timo Lassmann completed his PhD in functional genomics at the Karolinska Institute Sweden, then moved to Japan where he worked on the Functional annotation of the mammalian genome (FANTOM) and ENCODE projects and is currently leading leading the precision health program and computational biology team at the Telethon Kids Institute. His current focus is on employing and developing modern machine learning/AI techniques to utilize the wealth of public omics data in clinical and translational contexts.

About the seminar

Genomics is revolutionizing the treatment of many diseases and is increasingly used in the healthcare system. The promise of genomics is simple: by deeply profiling individuals using modern technologies we can detect the presence of undiagnosed conditions, find the cause of diseases and select the best treatment options quicker. Delivery of these precision health benefits is driven by tight integration of research into the health care system. The goal of Dr. Lassmann's research program is to accelerate the process of scientific discovery as well as pinpointing opportunities for rapid translation of research findings into the clinic. In this talk Dr. Lassmann will outline computational approaches to accelerate diagnosis of rare diseases. 

Please note that the seminar starts at 12:00. 

Before the seminar, a limited number of sandwiches and drinks will be served on a “First come – first served” basis starting 11:45. Show up early and network!

The seminar is held in English.
