Taunton Paine, M.A., Julia Slutsman, Ph.D., and Cindy Danielson, Ph.D.

In the second part of this two-part webinar series, join NIH’s Office of Science Policy and Office of Extramural Research to learn more about the 2023 NIH DMS Policy, including privacy protections for data and justifiable limitations on sharing data.

DMS Webinar Part 1
August 11, 2022 1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. ET

Taunton Paine, M.A., Julia Slutsman, Ph.D., and Cindy Danielson, Ph.D.

Learn from NIH science policy and extramural research experts about the 2023 DMS policy and how it’s anticipated to affect the preservation and sharing of scientific data generated from NIH-funded or conducted research.

Dr. Eytan Ruppin
June 29, 2022 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. ET

Eytan Ruppin M.D., Ph.D.

The NCI Center for Cancer Research’s Dr. Eytan Ruppin will present on “SELECT,” a computational approach that aims to identify clinically relevant synthetic lethal interactions and then harnesses them to predict patient response to cancer therapy from the bulk tumor transcriptome.

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

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.

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

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.

Clemens Grassberge
April 20, 2022 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. ET

Clemens Grassberger, Ph.D.

Dr. Grassberger will highlight the current computational and mathematical approaches for modeling the impact of radiotherapy on the immune system, as well as designing the next generation of combination trials.

Malachi Griffith
April 06, 2022 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. ET

Malachi Griffith, Ph.D.

Dr. Malachi Griffith will give an introduction to neoantigens, a promising area for cancer immunotherapy and precision medicine. Dr. Griffith will describe how immunogenomic and bioinformatic approaches are helping to identify neoantigens and therapeutic modalities to target these abnormal proteins. He also will offer insight into tools to support related clinical trial efforts.

Ben Raphael
March 23, 2022 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. ET

Ben Raphael, Ph.D.

Dr. Ben Raphael will describe how tumors are heterogeneous mixtures of normal and cancerous cells with distinct genetic and transcriptional profiles. He’ll also discuss computational approaches to quantify tumor heterogeneity and reconstruct tumor evolution using data from single-cell DNA and spatial RNA sequencing technologies.

Dr. Elana Fertig
March 09, 2022 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. ET

Elana J. Fertig, Ph.D.

Dr. Elana J. Fertig (whose lab also uses multiplatform genomics data, blended with mathematical modeling and artificial intelligence) will demonstrate how CoGAPS, an established method for identifying transcriptional signatures related to cell type and state, can be applied to single cell data to identify patterns underlying immunotherapy response and resistance. Combining CoGAPS with transfer learning approaches provides insight into the patterns found in preclinical models, which then can be applied to patient samples to find shared features across data sets from different species.

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.
