Summer School: “Big Data For Precision Medicine”
1 April 2016

 Pavia, Italy, 12 – 15 September 2016



Early Bird registration deadline: 31 July 2016

Max. attendance: 40 people.

Admission: in order of submission


During this School PhD students and post-docs will be trained on novel methodological and technological approaches that enable the analysis and integration of a high variety of large volume data, with specific focus on genomics and environmental ones, for the benefit of precision medicine and clinical decision-making. Gathered in a friendly and interactive atmosphere, the students will attend theoretical and practical sessions.

The school will have the following distinguishing features:

• It will deal with a hot and crucial topic of current research and education: how to merge precision medicine needs and big data technologies.

• It will provide a novel view of the topic, offering, together with the “-omics” perspective, the human-environment interaction aspects. 

• The courses will be delivered by renowned experts in the field: both academics from national and international research centers, and representatives from IBM, one of the most important companies working on Big Data; and will include both theoretical and practical aspects.

• Participants will have the opportunity to attend 4th European I2B2 meeting. 

The School is open to Ph.D. students and post-doctoral researchers.
