Speaker information

Natasa Przulj, Professor of Biomedical Data Science, UCL, Natasa Przulj is a Professor of Biomedical Data Science at UCL Computer Science Department. She was previously a Reader (2012-2016) and Lecturer (2009-2012) in the Department of Computing at Imperial College London and an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science Department at University of California Irvine (2005-2009). She obtained a PhD in Computer Science from University of Toronto in 2005. Professor Przulj is a Fellow of the British Computer Society. In 2014, she was awarded the British Computer Society Roger Needham Award for a distinguished research contribution in computer science by a UK based researcher within ten years of their PhD. In 2013, she was elected into the Young Academy of Europe. She received a prestigious European

We are faced with a flood of molecular and clinical data. Various biomolecules interact in a cell to perform biological function, forming large, complex systems. Large amounts of patient-specific datasets are available, providing complementary information on the same disease type. The challenge is how to mine these complex data systems to answer fundamental questions, gain new insight into diseases and improve therapeutics. Just as computational approaches for analysing genetic sequence data have revolutionized biological understanding, the expectation is that analyses of networked “omics” and clinical data will have similar ground-breaking impacts.
