CCMB Seminar Series – sponsored by DCMB
by Dr. Eleanor Howe (Founder and CEO of Diamond Age Data Science)

Abstract

She’ll be describing the technologies and datasets her team uses to study human disease and develop new and improved treatments for their clients.  She’ll cover the applications of traditional transcriptional profiling and sequence analysis as well as datasets and tools developed specifically for therapeutics development including CMap, Project Achilles, PRISM, functional CRISPR screening and others.  She’ll also touch on topics like biomarker development, patient selection/stratification and gene therapy development.  Along the way, she’ll describe what it’s like to work as a consultant, and how it differs from academic work or direct employment in the pharmaceutical industry.
