Virtual

Peng Jiang, Ph.D.

Dr. Peng Jiang of NCI’s Center for Cancer Research will discuss CytoSig, a software-based platform that provides both a database of target genes modulated by cytokines and a predictive model of cytokine signaling cascades from transcriptomic profiles. NCI is seeking parties interested in licensing and/or co-developing the platform.

Hongkai Ji, Ph.D., M.A., M.E. and Carsten Krieg, Ph.D.

Johns Hopkins University’s Dr. Ji will present, “Identifying and Preventing Artifacts in High Dimensional Data: Computational Science in Immuno-Oncology.” This is the third of nine seminars in the SITC-NCI Computational Immuno-Oncology Webinar Series, a series designed for data scientists interested in the latest data science technologies and immunotherapy research.

Svitlana Volkova
June 01, 2022 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. ET
Virtual

Svitlana Volkova, Ph.D.

Dr. Svitlana Volkova will discuss a suite of augmented intelligence solutions powered by Artificial Intelligence models. She’ll show how these models can be used to detect, anticipate, and reason with technical expertise and capability development to analyze and extract knowledge from large amounts of unstructured scientific literature data.

Dr. Mirabela Rusu
June 06, 2022 01:00 p.m. - 02:00 p.m. ET
Webinar

Mirabela Rusu, Ph.D.

At the June NCI Imaging and Informatics Community Webinar, Stanford University’s Dr. Mirabela Rusu will discuss the improvement of prostate MRI interpretation by developing deep learning models that automatically localize indolent and aggressive prostate cancers on MRI scans.

Obi Griffith
June 15, 2022 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. ET
Virtual

Obi L. Griffith, Ph.D.

Dr. Obi L. Griffith will discuss CIViC, an open access, open source, community-driven web resource for clinical interpretation of variants in cancer. The goal of this resource is to enable precision medicine by providing an educational forum for dissemination of knowledge and active discussion of the clinical significance of cancer genome alterations.
