It gives us great pleasure to announce that Dr. Ashraf Mina will be joining the Pathology Horizons 2017 speaker panel in Cairns this August.
Dr Mina’s presentation entitled:
“Big Data Provides Opportunities, Challenges and a Better Future in Health and Research”
will look at how “Big Data” promises big opportunities but also raises huge challenges in health and research. Dr Mina will explore how health professionals can become masters of the digital revolution and avoid being enslaved by it.
According to Dr. Mina, deriving useful information from “Big Data” requires the development of increasingly sophisticated methods of mathematical and statistical analysis and the design of efficient algorithms.
The role of “Big Data” in medicine is one where we can build better health profiles and better predictive models around individual patients so that we can better diagnose and treat disease.
Dr. Mina, Principal Scientist at Pathology West has has more than thirty years’ experience in clinical laboratories, research and management in public and private sectors.
