Mount Sinai and the Atlantic Host Working Summit on Big Data in New York City
Date:10/29/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) October 29, 2013

Vast amounts of data from genomic sequencing and electronic health records (EHRs) have the potential to radically improve the health of individual patients, but first, institutions must learn how to manage the data, and adopt uniform standards in usability that will enable them to share vital information.

This discussion was center stage at a Working Summit on Big Data hosted by The Atlantic in partnership with the Mount Sinai Health System on October 23 in New York City, at which 24 policy makers, entrepreneurs, and health care leaders shared their thoughts and experiences in harnessing petabytes of data for use in improving human health.

"Big data analytics influence how we deal with individual patients. We now sequence the genetics of a single tumor, model that tumor in an animal model, test drugs on that animal model and take those findings back to the patient. We can't do that without a tremendous amount of data," said Dennis S. Charney, MD, Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Dean, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and President for Academic Affairs at the Mount Sinai Health System. Speaking at a roundtable discussion moderated by Corby Kummer, Senior Editor of The Atlantic Dr. Charney added, "We're responsible for the health of millions of people. We have to determine what works and what doesn't in large numbers of patients with a lot of different diseases, and that has required us to make a significant investment in a high-performance computing system."

Few academic research institutions have on-site computing capabilities comparable to Mount Sinai's, which allow researchers to integrate and analyze different dimensions of biological data from large populations of people, and perform predictive modeling. At the center of this infrastructure is Minerva, a powerful supercomputer named after the Roman goddess of wisdom and medicin
