SESSION 77 – ASHG Distinguished Speakers Invited
Symposium: Medical Systems Genomics
Hall B2, Level 0 (Lower Level), Convention Center
Moderators
:
Jeff Murray, Univ. of Iowa; Andrew G.
Clark, Cornell Univ.
This symposium will provide the ASHG community
with an update from a trio of trailblazing experts on the
state of the art of systems biology and its applications
to medical genetics. Aviv Regev, Marc Vidal, and Garry
Nolan will provide varying perspectives on the use of
omics data to build predictive models of physiological
states of the cell and the organism, including diseased
states. These integrative approaches can provide a
particularly informative picture of changes in cellular
function mediated by cancer, pathogen response,
and other stresses. They will challenge us with
what the prospects are for methods like these to
deliver improved insights regarding disease risk and
therapeutic interventions. The speakers will conclude
by gazing into the future, providing a vision of where
systems medicine will be going in the next decade.
