On October 25, representatives from industry, the Simons Foundation, BioNJ, Rutgers and Princeton University—all stakeholders in the advancement of biomedical data science--will gather on campus to explore common research interests and consider formation of a regional biomedical data science community.  

The Princeton University Biomedical Data Science Industry Engagement Day will start with remarks by SEAS Dean Emily Carter; Robert Hugin, Executive Chairman of Celgene; Computer Science Chair Jen Rexford; Leslie Greengard of the Flatiron Institute/Simons Foundation; and Nicolo Fusi of Microsoft. During the day, seven Princeton faculty researchers will present their work to provide a common base of knowledge on the breadth of the field. The day will conclude with an extended discussion considering next steps to advance regional collaboration. The panel leading this discussion will include the morning’s speakers, as well as Debbie Hart, BioNJ President and CEO; William J. Welsh, Associate Director, Division of Cheminformatics at the Rutgers-Cancer Institute of New Jersey (RCINJ); Elizabeth Bruce, University Lead, Microsoft Research; and Prakash Balan, Program Director of the IUCRC at the National Science Foundation. 

This invitation-only event will be held in the Convocation Room at the Friend Center. The Office of Corporate Engagement and Foundation Relations is organizing this day on behalf of the School of Engineering and Applied Science. If you would like to attend, please contact Spencer Reynolds (; 258-5617).
