Come Chat With Leading Scientists in Biology & Science … Over a Pint

Wednesday, October 25, 2017 • 7 p.m. • Finley’s of Huntington

No cover • Cash bar • Happy Hour drink specials
Seating is limited and available on a first come, first served basis

Cocktails & Chromosomes, featuring physicist-turned-biologist Gurinder “Mickey” Atwal Ph.D., an associate professor at CSHL.

What do physics and math have to do with biology? They’re enabling Mickey and his colleagues to analyze cancer as never before; to analyze blood to provide a kind of living e-health record; and giving them the insights they need to build a vaccine against breast cancer. Powered by Big Data insights and multi-million-dollar super computers, quantitative biology is enabling scientists to make sense of the terabytes of data generated by genome science.

Dr. Mickey Atwal discusses how he develops and uses tools like AI and deep learning in his research, and why BIG DATA isn’t just for Facebook anymore.
