TransMed 2016: Translational Medicine Informatics & Applications
July 8, 2016 │ Orlando │ USA

We are happy to announce the TransMed 2016: Translational Medicine Informatics & Applications meeting, to be held during the ISMB 2016, (Orlando, USA), on July 8, 2016.

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.

Conference objective

In the TransMed SIG meeting, we will explore the current status of computational biology approaches within the field of translational medicine. Authors are invited to submit abstracts (1 page) for presentations and posters by April 15, 2016. Details of submission process are available on the TransMed2016 SIG website.
