Charlotte Nelson received her PhD from the University of California, San Francisco in Biological and Medical Informatics under the mentorship of Dr. Sergio Baranzini and Dr. Atul Butte. Here she envisioned the use of SPOKE, a heterogeneous knowledge graph, not solely as a graph for users to go from one node to another, but as a stage for biomedical innovation. This vision saw her embed the data from millions of patients onto SPOKE. Her research has showcased multiple clinical and pharmaceutical applications of SPOKE enhanced with real world data. Additionally, in collaboration with NASA, she showed that SPOKE’s capabilities could be expanded to basic science (non-medical) research to gain multi-domain insights of input datasets. In 2021, Mate Bioservices was launched, in partnership with UCSF, to harness the power of SPOKE with platforms and services to advance academic, clinical, and pharmaceutical research.
Beyond Data: A Knowledge Platform for Biomedical Research
Today’s most pressing biomedical problems will only be solved through multidisciplinary exchanges of data and knowledge. Mate Bioservices’ human-centric platforms and services leverage our powerful knowledge graph to enable this interchange. Now academic, pharmaceutical, and clinical researchers can accelerate innovation by investigating their private data through a multidisciplinary and multi-omics lens.
The value of data in healthcare is undeniable and realized when raw information is successfully converted into knowledge that changes clinical practice. To drive value improvements and ensure that the right patient receives the right care requires the right data in combination with the right data analytics. This session will cover various aspects and challenges of data science in hospitals and health systems that drive healthcare with better outcomes.
