TransMed 2016: Translational Medicine Informatics and Applications Meeting, July 2016, USA

The TransMed 2016 meeting will take place on July 8 2016, during the Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB) 2016 in Orlando, USA

The current status of computational biology approaches within the field of translational medicine will be explored during the TransMed 2016 meeting.

Knowledge-based translational medicine is a rapidly growing discipline in biomedical research and aims to expedite the discovery of new diagnostic tools and treatments by using a multi-disciplinary, highly collaborative, “bench-to-bedside” approach. Large amounts of multi-omics, imaging (medical and molecular) and clinical data can now be captured for given patient populations. In addition to the challenges of data curation and harmonisation, new computational methods are required to identify molecular signatures that suggest disease subtype. These signatures may be predictive of outcome or progression, and impact on disease management by suggesting personalised therapeutic strategies for patients. Such approaches will further the development of a new taxonomy of disease.
