TransMed 2021: Translational Medical Informatics Meeting @ISMB/ECCB 2021, July 2021, virtual

In the TransMed COSI meeting, the current status of computational biology approaches within the field of translational medicine will be explored.

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 data curation and harmonization challenges, new computational methods are required to identify molecular signatures that suggest disease subtypes. These signatures may be predictive of outcome or progression and impact on disease management by suggesting personalized therapeutic strategies for patients. Such approaches will further the development of a new taxonomy of disease.
