Topic :

A 10-year data science view of the complexity of cancer

Abstract :

What is cancer? Very simply, it is a cell with a faulty "off" switch. With more than 30 trillion cells in the human body, this process can be wide and varied. Sanjay will summarize four concepts that drive data in Healthcare and Life Sciences in the study of cancer: a. Sample Size (and how to get it) b. Infrastructure (and how to scale it) c. Workflows (and how to identify them) d. Complexity (and how to handle it). An anthology of data from the past 10 years that illustrate the complexity of cancer will be presented.
