ESHG Workshop 2016
Workshop at the European Human Genetics Conference 2016 (ESHG 2016)

- Room 112
Personalized Medicine has received increasing interest over the last years, not only from the scientific community but also from governments and the general public. Its aim is to combine genetic, clinical, and environmental data to improve medical diagnosis and disease treatment, tailored to each individual. In this workshop we give an overview of the main challenges in this field, e.g., how to deal with patient heterogeneity in a highly dimensional space, how to obtain easy-to-interpret models for highly complex biological scenarios, and how to generalize/validate discoveries and guarantee their replicability. The audience is invited to join us in a brainstorming exercise to overcome some of these challenges. Cutting-edge seed idea solutions are provided from a Machine Learning and Statistical Genetics points of view.
The workshop is organised by the Intitial Training Network "Machine Learning for Personalized Medicine"
