Masur Auditorium, NIH Clinical Center (Bldg 10)
Eric Schadt, Ph.D., Director of the Icahn Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York, will present The Annual Florence Mahoney Lecture, “A multiscale biology approach for dissecting the complex processes underlying aging and aging related phenotypes" next in the Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series (WALS).
about the speaker: Schadt is an expert on the generation and integration of very large-scale sequence variation, molecular profiling and clinical data in disease populations for constructing molecular networks that define disease states and link molecular biology to physiology. He is known for calling for a shift in molecular biology toward a network-oriented view of living systems to complement the reductionist, single-gene approaches that currently dominate biology in order to more accurately model the complexity of biological systems. He has published more than 200 peer-reviewed papers in leading scientific journals, and contributed to a number of discoveries relating to the genetic basis of common human diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Come join your colleagues, DDIR Michael Gottesman and NIH Director Francis Collins at these top-notch lectures, even if you think they are outside of your area of interest. The next next WALS is October 8: the Annual George Khoury Lecture by Paul Bieniasz of The Rockefeller University. The 2014–2015 WALS schedule is posted at http://wals.od.nih.gov.
