An Introduction to the BDI (Big Data Institute) with Professor Cecilia Lindgren

Join us for a live webinar on the 18th March at 6pm where Professor Cecilia Lindgren will be discussing the research, role and history behind the Big Data Institute at Oxford and her relationship with St Anne’s as a Research Fellow.

Discover how and why the BDI uses data sets for research into the causes and consequences, prevention and treatment of disease.

Hear from Professor Lindgren about how Oxford researchers at the BDI are developing, evaluating and deploying efficient methods for acquiring and analysing information for large clinical research studies to identify the associations between lifestyle exposures, genetic variants, infections and health outcomes around the globe.

Cecilia Lindgren has a PhD in Molecular Genetics with a specialisation in endocrinology from the University of Lund, completed in sponsorship by the Witehead Institute at MIT, Cambridge, USA. She was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Lund and at the Karolinska Institutet, and a Scholar in Residence at the Broad Institute in Cambridge, USA, before joining the University of Oxford. She is a Wellcome Trust Investigator and co-founder/co-chair of the International Common Disease Alliance. She has been a Senior Research Fellow at St Anne’s since 2016, when she joined the steering group of the Centre for Personalised Medicine (at St Anne’s).

Her talk will be followed by a Q&A with the audience.
