Lectures and seminars Opponent seminar Prof. Paul Boutros
”The origins of tumour aggressivity”.
Welcome to a seminar with Professor Paul Boutros, University of Los Angeles California
Title: ”The origins of tumour aggressivity”
Time: Thursday December 8th at 2pm.
Place: Eva & Georg Klein, Level 3, Biomedicum
Speaker: Paul Boutros, PhD, MBA, is a renowned data scientist and professor in the departments of human genetics and urology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.
The research in Boutros’ laboratory lies at the intersection of clinical, molecular, and imaging data. He focuses on how these diverse pieces of information can be linked to personalize therapy for cancer patients. By applying techniques from modern data science strategies, particularly machine-learning, he creates biomarkers to help ensure therapies are selected that maximize cure and minimize morbidities. His work sometimes centers on specific tumor types, particularly prostate and thyroid, but often includes others in conjunction to identify general and tumor-type specific features of cancer. Some of his recent studies focus on how cancers develop differently based on the sex, age, or ethnic features of the patient.
