An increasing volume of data is becoming available in biomedicine and healthcare, from genomic data, to electronic patient records and data collected by wearable devices. Recent advances in data science allow us to harness the power of such data, leading to precision medicine, AI diagnostics, data-driven drug discovery and disease understanding, among others.

But what is data science and how can it be applied to different areas of biomedicine and healthcare? Is your organisation data-ready? And what are the opportunities and challenges brought by big data in health?

Sponsored by the Data Science, Technology and Innovation online learning programme and the Bayes Centre this workshop will explore these topics while getting a practical, hands-on taster of data science in health. The workshop is designed for healthcare and biomedicine professionals working in academia, industry, the public sector or the third sector, who have very little or no background in data science or computing.
