The need to keep patient data private and the historically insular nature of academic research have combined to leave biomedical research behind the times when it comes to Big Data. Fred Hutch's new CIO Matthew Trunnell hopes to change that.
Dr. Philip Bradley and Colleen Delaney from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center are among 31 scientists identified in Genome Technology magazine for making an impact early in their careers. The magazine's second annual young investigators special issue gives readers a chance to see large-scale biomedical research through the eyes of some of the best and brightest people around the world who are poised to make serious contributions to their areas of interest.
