Join us for Edinburgh Neuroscience's 2019 annual Christmas Public Lecture and find out how the big data revolution is affecting the way we do health research.
Increasingly complex data are being collected in very large health research studies and are arising each day from millions of patient contacts in the health service. Prof Sudlow will explain how linking these big health datasets together and analysing them with increasingly powerful computers and advanced methods can bring new insights into how and why diseases such as strokes, heart attacks, cancer and dementia develop, and new knowledge about the best ways to prevent and treat them.
Professor Catherine Sudlow is one of Edinburgh's Principal Investigator for population health, stroke and dementia research. She directs the newly established Scottish substantive site of Health Data Research UK and was elected as a fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 2018.
Venue: Anatomy Lecture Theatre, Old Medical School, Teviot Place, University of Edinburgh, EH8 9AG
There will be a reception in the Anatomical Museum after the lecture.
