CDAC Data & Technology Outlook: Data-Driven Medicine & Precision Oncology
Eric Lefkofsky, Tempus, and Dr. Olufunmilayo I. Olopade, University of Chicago Medicine
Moderated by Samantha Riesenfeld, Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering
Join us for a fireside chat with Eric Lefkofsky, founder and CEO at Tempus, and Dr. Olufunmilayo I. Olopade, the Walter L. Palmer Distinguished Service Professor of Medicine and Human Genetics at the University of Chicago, as they discuss some of the most talked-about issues at the intersection of technology, big data, and medicine. They will focus on the potential for big data in the prediction, prevention and early detection of cancer, the promising field of precision therapeutics, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hear about the state of the field both in academia and industry and where these experts see opportunities for innovation. The discussion will also include practical advice for industry leaders, researchers, founders, and students navigating the expanding field of precision medicine.
The conversation will be moderated by Samantha Riesenfeld, Assistant Professor of Molecular Engineering and Genetic Medicine at the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering.
Part of the CDAC 2021 Data & Technology Outlook Series
Many of the data science and computational tools that revolutionized the modern business landscape resulted from close collaborations between industry and academia. Tomorrow’s innovations are under construction today in R&D departments and university laboratories, where researchers develop solutions to the most pressing data challenges across fields.
This year, the Center for Data and Computing (CDAC) at the University of Chicago presents a series of critical conversations between industry leaders and researchers pushing the frontiers of data science forward, presenting and discussing new tools in artificial intelligence, data analysis and discovery, security and privacy, that will define the next decade of data technology in science and industry. The Outlook series will provide a balanced understanding of the trends reshaping business and tech with the goal of translating hype into realistic predictions.
