Ahead of the Curve: New Frontiers in Biomedical Data Science

A Princeton Industry Engagement Day

 

Missed the event? Video of the day's presentations can be watched here.

 

Wednesday, October 25, 2017  8:00am-6:30pm
Friend Center, Convocation Room
65 Olden Street, Princeton, NJ 
Princeton University Campus

By invitation only.

The cutting edge of biomedical research is at the nexus of life science and data science—a research intersection that by its nature thrives on interdisciplinary collaboration. What more can be done in the NJ/PA/NY corridor to accelerate this collaboration for the benefit of all participants?

This invitation-only Industry Engagement Day invites biopharma R&D leaders to the Princeton University campus to explore cutting edge research in biomedical data science and to stimulate new collaborative structures and relationships.

A central goal of the day will be to explore building a regional identity for biomedical data science involving universities, foundations and industry in the NJ/PA/NYC corridor.

If you have any questions about the event, please contact Spencer Reynolds in Princeton University Corporate Engagement (spencerr@princeton.edu; 609-258-5617)

Please acknowledge your invitation and attendance by registering. Thank you!
