Join researchers, practitioners and policymakers on September 21st to discuss priorities for applying Data Science to healthcare

Data Science has the potential to revolutionise healthcare, and respond to the increasing volume and complexity in biomedical data. From genomics to clinical records, from imaging to mobile health and personalised medicine, the data volume in biomedical research presents urgent challenges for mathematics, statistics and computer science.

On September 21st 2015, the Centre for Mathematical Sciences will host a summit inviting researchers, practitioners, policy makers and funders from the public and private sectors to discuss the needs, challenges and opportunities for Data Science in Health and to help inform the strategic priorities of the Alan Turing Institute in addressing them.

About us

The Cambridge Big Data Strategic Research Initiative brings together researchers from across the University to address challenges presented by our access to unprecedented volumes of data. Our research spans all six Schools of the University, from the underlying fundamentals in mathematics and computer science, to applications ranging from astronomy and bioinformatics, to medicine, social science and the humanities

In parallel, our research addresses important issues around law, ethics and economics, in order to apply Big Data to solve challenging problems for society.

Cambridge Big Data supports collaboration and knowledge transfer in this growing field.
