From molecules to health records: utility of omics at population scale
Application of different omic technologies is now feasible at population scale. This talk will present examples of how the integration of different omics in large patient and population studies can help to predict disease risk, understand mechanisms, and reveal shared connections between different diseases.
Short bio: Claudia Langenberg is Professor of Computational Medicine at the Berlin Institute of Health at Charité (BIH) and MRC Investigator and Programme Leader at the MRC Epidemiology Unit at the University of Cambridge. Her research is focused on the genetic basis of metabolic control, and her team studies its effects on health through integration of molecular with clinical data in large-scale patient and population-based studies.
