Event description

Description

Thank you for your interest in Health Data Research UK's inaugural Summer School, hosted by the University of St Andrews during the week of 19 to 23 August 2019.

It aims to train participants in core data science skills and on how to apply these to different data sets, from genomic to population level.

The first four days will include a mix of plenary lectures, short courses and discussion meetings based on topics suggested by participants. These will be run as a sequence of parallel sessions, allowing each participant to pick their own programme to match their interests and requirements. The fifth day will be a schools engagement event with senior pupils from two local secondary schools.

Plenary speakers include:

  • Professor Mark Lawler (HDR UK and Queen’s University Belfast). Mark is Dean of Education and Professor in the Centre for Cancer research and Cell Biology
  • Dr Madeleine Thomson (Columbia University, New York). Madeleine leads the Health and Climate programme at Columbia’s International Research Institute for Climate and Society
  • Professor Cathie Sudlow (HDR UK and University of Edinburgh). Cathie heads the Centre for Medical Informatics and holds a personal chair in Neurology and Clinical Epidemiology

Parallel session topics will include Leadership, Patient and Public Involvement in Research, Core and Applied Data Science Skills and Machine Learning.

Capacity for the Summer School is limited to 80 participants. We welcome registrations from HDR UK UKRI and Rutherford and Fellows, NIHR/HDR UK Incubator in Health Data Science Fellows, and other early-career researchers and technology specialists in Health Data Science.
