CKYC Master’s Tea with Prof. Jessica Mar: “Understanding Human Disease through Big Data Analysis” / 蔡繼有書院院長茶聚:與Jessica Mar教授探討“通過大數據分析瞭解人類疾病的成因!”

“Understanding Human Disease through Big Data Analysis!” This was the topic of the last CKYC Master’s Tea, April 18, 2017, Held in our usual haunt, G024, the College Fellows Salon. What a nice introduction to computational biology given to us by the youthful Professor Jessica Mar, who holds appointments in both the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City and the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology at the University of Queensland, DownUnder. Genes, she tells us, determines who or what we are. Understanding them can lead to better personalized medicine, and yet, by collecting data from large amounts of samples will lead to better overall treatment. The topic obviously has broad appeal as a record audience of 56 packed the room! Thank you, Prof. Mar for taking the time from your hectic travels to stop by at humble CKYC!

 

“通過大數據分析瞭解人類疾病的成因!”這是這學期最後一次蔡繼有書院院長茶聚的主題。於2017年4月18日,在我們的G024學人廳室舉辦。年輕的Jessica Mar教授在紐約市的阿爾伯特愛因斯坦醫學院和紐約州昆士蘭大學的澳大利亞生物工程與納米技術研究所任職,她向我們介紹了計算生物學,並告訴了我們基因決定了我們是誰。 瞭解他們可以幫助我們更好地提高個體化用藥,而且通過收集大量樣品的數據我們可以更好地提高整體治療水準。這個話題顯然具有廣泛的吸引力,創下了56名學生參加的記錄!
