Jill Barnholtz-Sloan, Ph.D.

During the SNO/NCI joint event, “Introduction to Career Pathways in Neuro-Oncology,” CBIIT’s Dr. Jill Barnholtz-Sloan will present “#DataMatters in neuro-oncology” to share the importance and impact of data science on central nervous system neoplasm research.

Aya Abdelsalam Ismail
December 15, 2021 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. ET

Mrs. Aya Abdelsalam Ismail

In this talk, Mrs. Aya Abdelsalam Ismail will give an overview on interpreting Deep Neural Networks (DNNs), focusing on the use of DNNs to track and predict changes over time.

Martina Mancini, Ph.D. and Nikesha Gilmore, Ph.D.

In this webinar, Drs. Mancini and Gilmore will describe how different types of biomarkers (including those retrieved by a patient wearable) can be used to examine the effects of cancer and cancer treatment on trajectories related to aging. Examples include digital biomarkers related to gait and balance, as well as a biological biomarker reflecting epigenetic age.

Martin Yaffe, C.M., Ph.D., FRSC

Join the December NCI Imaging and Informatics Community webinar to learn how Dr. Martin Yaffe’s team is developing imaging tools and a multi-platform approach to improve breast cancer detection and diagnosis.

Elham Azizi, Ph.D.
December 03, 2021 12:00 p.m. - 01:00 p.m. ET

Elham Azizi, Ph.D.

Hear from Columbia University’s Dr. Elham Azizi as she presents a set of machine learning methods developed to address problems such as handling sparsity and noise, distinguishing technical variation from biological heterogeneity, inferring underlying circuitry, and inferring temporal dynamics of immune cell states in clinical cohorts. Dr. Azizi will also present novel biological insights obtained from applying these methods to cancer systems.

Dr. James Lacey
December 01, 2021 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. ET

James Lacey, Ph.D., M.P.H.

In this talk, Dr. James Lacey will describe the choices the cancer research community should consider and the questions they need to ask when transitioning their research projects to a cloud-based ecosystem.
