Computational Medicine Center Director Rigoutsos Using Big Data to Understand Disease: HPC Wire

Getting the answers to what causes some people to develop diseases and not others is driving the groundbreaking medical research being conducted by the Computational Medicine Center at Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University, HPC Wire reported Feb. 14.

Center Director Isidore Rigoutsos, PhD, and his team are deepening the understanding of disease in individuals by analyzing “big data” – massive amounts of diverse biological datasets  – to guide development of new and more effective diagnostic techniques and therapies to benefit patients – with the data providing levels of personalization never seen before.

Stephen Klasko, MD, MBA, president of Thomas Jefferson University and CEO of Jefferson Health, and Mark Tykocinski, MD, University executive vice president for academic affairs and dean of the Sidney Kimmel Medical College, are also featured in the article.
