TranSYS Kickoff Meetings & Mini-Symposium

Post-meeting slides and recordings

  • Introduction to TranSYS [slides, recording]
  •  

  • Dr Synder’s talk covered ground-breaking work on the way he and his co-workers combine different Big Data “omics” technologies for individual profiling in a dynamic way. They were the first to use “dynamic integrative personal omics profiling” iPOP to estimate disease risk or to monitor changing disease states, all of which are crucial in bringing Precision Medicine closer to the beneficiaries [recording with discussion].
  •  

  • Dr Coenye discussed precision medicine in the context of microbiology. In particular, he showed case studies of personalizing antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory treatments in patients [slides].
  •  

  • Dr Cvijovic’s talk on single cell / whole population models of yeast replicative aging, complemented the talk of Dr Coenye on treating microbial infections and of Dr Snyder on Big Data & Health, in understanding the merits and limitations of model organisms in understanding healthy aging [slides, recording with discussion, preceded by views on career development as former Marie Curie ESR].
