Georgetown University Systems Medicine Program was designed to help students learn about the role of Information Technologies and data in biomedical research and clinical practice. Organized by Dr. Sona Vasudevan, this is a unique program at the Georgetown Medical Center that offers a unique perspective into the world of molecular medicine, biomarker discovery and the role of technology in the improvement of clinical care. The program covers such important topics like bioinformatics and machine learning in application to biomedical challenges and research.
A large part of the program is dedicated to bioinformatics – both the traditional application of various information technologies to biological data and the application of machine learning and AI to this field. Given the diverse nature of the program participants and the intense pace at which students are learning a variety of topics, addressing such topics can be challenging. Dr. Sona Vasudevan, the director of Systems Medicine program, attracted top quality contacts from her network to help solve this challenge.
After exploring the machine learning courses offered by Pine Biotech, a small-scale pilot was initiated:
“The Machine Learning course run by Pine Biotech was very well received by our students and I am very glad we were able to include the course as part of our Systems Medicine Program. This was a great and a needed addition to our curriculum”
- Dr. Sona Vasudevan, Director of the Georgetown University Systems Medicine Program.
As a part of this collaboration, Pine Biotech CEO, Elia Brodsky will be presenting the multi-omics integration capabilities of the platform at the workshop during The First International Conference in Systems and Network Medicine hosted by Georgetown University Medical Center.
