Precision & Network Medicine – Can ‘big data’ save your life?

The precision and network medicine approach is taking us beyond the age of traditional black and white clinical decision making to an era of precise disease prevention, prediction and treatment around specific individuals. This session is a panel discussion that will highlight how BWH is gearing up to become the world leader in precision and network medicine with examples of how this approach has transformed the care of BWH patients in recent times and what challenges lie ahead. We will be announcing our speakers soon, so check back!


Bioengineering – The Meeting of the Minds

The Bioengineering session – “Meeting of the Minds: Stories of Successful Collaborations in Bioengineering & Medicine” is a series of short overview talks by bioengineer-clinician pairs who have teamed up to apply their combined expertise to seek bioengineering solutions for old and new problems in healthcare. The speakers will highlight specific clinical problems and the development of corresponding bioengineering solutions for these problems. They will also spotlight the strengths of their collaborative approach to problem solving.
