VSC Industry Road Tour: HPC meets Health - a collaboration between uHasselt Data Science Institute, BioVille and Van Havermaet Medici.

Over dit evenement

*Due to the current COVID situation, this event has been canceled. A new dated will be scheduled later. For questions, please reach out to tim.jaenen@fwo.be.

The Flemish Supercomputer Center (VSC - Vlaams Supercomputer Centrum) organises, as part of their VSC Industry Road Tour, and in collaboration with the uHasselt Data Science Institute, BioVille and Van Havermaet Medici, on December 13 a live networking session, themed around health.

As the volume of data available to the health industry grows, so do the opportunities to make ground-breaking medical discoveries and introduce transformational value for patients. High Performance Computing (HPC) has already demonstrated its added value, across the health spectrum from prevention to early diagnosis to finding the best tailored treatment options and restoring health.

In this session, two specialists will introduce diverse use cases where high performance computing will play an increasingly important role in order to accomplish this digital transformation in the healthcare industry.

Bio Tine Lewi:

Tine is Scientific Director within Janssen R&D / Clinical Innovation. She has led strategic data science projects for the passed 15 years and currently leads initiatives in the area of augmented RWD, digital health and non-conventional trial models. Tine has a background in medical informatics and applied economics. She completed a PhD degree developing novel risk-based communication approaches for disease interception.

Bio Liesbet Peeters:

Liesbet dreams of a world where one day every single person gets the treatment they deserve in a timely manner. She is convinced that we have to supercharge our healthcare system with insights gained from Big Data. Her research focuses on developing big data sharing procedures and artificial intelligence algorithms with a specific focus on real-world evidence. She is assistant professor (tenure) at the Biomedical Research Institute and Data Science Institute of Hasselt University. In 2013, she finished her PhD in Bio-Engineering Sciences at the KULeuven in Belgium. She is a member of the ELIXIR community focussing on constructing a sustainable infrastructure for the sharing of biological information throughout Europe. She heavily invests in increased community engagement and communication between stakeholders. For example, she is the chair of the MS Data Alliance initiative. Through the MS Data Alliance Academy activities, she aims for increased awareness about the value of real-world data, community building and promoting trustworthy and transparent practices. Next to this, as a core group member of the “Data Saves Lives” initiative, she is involved in setting up a large-scale multi-stakeholder awareness raising campaign on health data in Europe.
