Medicine 2.0: Using Machine Learning to Transform Medical Practice and Discovery

In this talk, Mihaela will present her view of the transformation of medicine through the use of machine learning, and some of her own contributions. This transformation is already being felt in every aspect of medicine: from clinical support for personalized diagnosis and prognosis to the estimation of individualized treatment effects without the need for clinical trials to medical discovery to the entire path of patient care. The heart of this transformation is the intelligent use of existing data.

Because of the unique and complex characteristics of medical data and medical questions, many familiar methods are inadequate. Mihaela’s work develops novel machine learning methods and applies them to a wide variety of medical settings. This work achieves enormous improvements over current clinical practice and over existing machine learning methods.

This talk will explore some of Mihaela’s work and vision of how data science can transform medical discovery and care.

Joseph J. Kinyoun Memorial Lecture – Antibodies Against Ebola and Lassa: A Global Collaboration

Air date: Tuesday, December 5, 2017, 3:00:00 PM

Category: Joseph J. Kinyoun – Infection and Immunity

Runtime: 00:52:54

Description: Joseph J. Kinyoun Memorial Lecture 2017

Dr. Erica Ollmann Saphire, director of the Viral Hemorrhagic Fever Immunotherapeutic Consortium (VIC), will deliver the 2017 Joseph J. Kinyoun Memorial Lecture.

Her talk, “Antibodies Against Ebola and Lassa: A Global Collaboration,” will explore the features of antibodies that protect against these deadly viruses and the ongoing need for scientists to collaborate in this research to establish a complete knowledge base. During the past three years, VIC researchers from dozens of labs on five continents have studied these protective antibodies. The VIC aims to fill critical knowledge gaps and provide a foundation of research that can be used to improve existing vaccines and antivirals, and to evaluate the pipeline of candidate countermeasures.

Ollmann Saphire, who has served as VIC director since 2013, investigates the structural biology of both viruses and antibodies—how viruses like Ebola, Marburg and Lassa infect host cells, what the viruses’ weaknesses are, and which antibody combinations might defeat them. This work has led to surprising and substantial discoveries in virology: Her team recently discovered that some viral proteins can change their 3D structures to play several different roles, allowing more information and more function to be encoded in concise viral genomes.

Ollmann Saphire received her Ph.D. in Macromolecular and Cellular Structure and Chemistry from The Scripps Research Institute (SRI) in 2000. She has since held a number of positions at TSRI, where she is currently a professor of Immunology and Microbial Science. Her work has been recognized with a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund, and young investigator awards from The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, the American Society for Microbiology, and the International Society for Antiviral Research. She is a fellow of both the American Academy of Microbiology and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and serves on the Scientific Leadership Board of the Global Virus Network.

Since 1979, NIAID has hosted an annual public lecture in honor of Dr. Joseph J. Kinyoun. In 1887, Kinyoun founded the Laboratory of Hygiene—the forerunner of NIH—paving the way for more than a century of groundbreaking medical discoveries since then.
