Biomedical Data Science – Leveraging Big Data in the Understanding and Treatment of Disease

Data science is transforming many industries, in applications ranging from movie recommendations to self-driving cars. Health care, in contrast, has been relatively slow to reap benefits from big data. However, the promise of its impact on medicine is driving us to work with data at new scales and with new emphasis on collaboration across disciplines. With the encouragement of the President’s Precision Medicine Initiative and the Vice President’s National Cancer Moonshot, we are sprinting to develop new capabilities for working with complex and nontraditional data in research and clinical settings.
