OSSD 2023: Using “Big Data” to Examine Sex Differences in Cancer
If you’re attending the 2023 Organization for the Study of Sex Differences (OSSD) annual meeting from May 7-11, you’ll have the opportunity to hear about big data and cancer from NCI’s Dr. Jill Barnholtz-Sloan. The registration process requires creating an account, which is different than becoming a member. This event is open to non-members.
In her talk, Using “Big Data” to Examine Sex Differences in Cancer: Glioma as an Exemplar, Jill will focus on using available data sets to examine the role that sex differences play in cancer. She will use brain tumors as an example. She will also highlight some of the work done in her research group.
Dr. Barnholtz-Sloan is the associate director of the informatics and data science program. She leads efforts at CBIIT to shape informatics and data science strategies and foster collaboration across the cancer research community. She is pursuing a research agenda in descriptive epidemiology and etiology of brain tumors as a senior intramural investigator in NCI’s Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics Trans-Divisional Research Program. As both an active researcher and administrator, she has insight into how to translate data into real-world solutions to help diagnose, prevent, and treat cancer.
