Samik Ghosh PhD
The Systems Biology Institute, Tokyo
The ability to connect data with analytics is becoming increasingly mission critical for 21st century toxicology, with the availability of large-scale data on multiple dimensions. Computational platforms for data aggregation, analysis and visualization will play a pivotal role in extracting executable insights in toxicology across various disciplines. This session will feature talks/case studies/discussions on linking data and analytics in toxicology with the goal towards identifying challenges and opportunities in building next generation intelligent platforms to empower biomedical research.
