About this Event

Big data is transforming healthcare and shaping its future delivery. Global healthcare systems are increasingly being challenged by complex conditions, where diagnosis and treatment can involve multiple specialists. New insights provided by the analysis of complicated health data have the potential to significantly improve diagnosis and treatments.

Big data provides opportunities to personalise treatments, design preventative care and predict population trends. Our researchers will share lessons learnt so far from the unique data health research environment in Scotland and reflect on the ethical and practical barriers to using huge sets of data in health research.

Host: Dee Davison, IGMM Public Engagement Manager

Presenters:

• Dr Andy Sims, Senior Research Fellow, CRUK Edinburgh Centre

• Dr Jeanette Baran-Gale, Research Fellow, Chris Ponting RG, MRC HGU

• Dr Charlie Lees, Consultant Gastroenterologist, CGEM, MRC IGMM & NHS
