1:45 PM Platform for Translational Medicine and other Biomedical Researchs
Biomedical research represents an increasingly complex and challenging type of scientific research, which requires the integration and synthesis of a range of data types from a diverse set of stakeholders in many different disciplines. This talk explores some ways in which the Microsoft Health tools can be leveraged to collect, integrate, analyze and present data from a range of sources in support of biomedical research efforts. In particular, we will explore how the research life cycle can be reflected and supported by the use of readily available infrastructure and how this can lead to more an effective, rapid and efficient traversal of the "innovation spiral." We will also cover some of the specific available resources, and discuss examples of how they have been used to support specific efforts.
