Ontologies, Deep Phenotyping, and AI for Computational Precision Medicine

A goal of precision medicine is to stratify patients in order to improve diagnosis and medical treatment. Translational investigators are bringing to bear ever greater amounts of heterogeneous clinical data and scientific information to create classification strategies that enable the matching of intervention to underlying mechanisms of disease in subgroups of patients. Ontologies are systematic representations of knowledge that can be used to inte-grate and analyze large amounts of heterogeneous data, allowing precise classification of a patient. In this talk, I will review our work in using HPO and other resources for computational precision medicine in rare and common disease and will present my plans for new research at BIH.

About the Speaker

Peter N. Robinson studied Mathematics, Computer Science and Medicine at Columbia University in New York City and the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. After a year of Internal Medicine (internship) at Yale University, he did a residency (Facharztweiterbildung) in pediatrics at the Charite. He was at the Institute of Medical Genetics of the Charite from 2000-2016 and did a Habilitation in Human Genetics. From 2016 to 2023, he was Professor (endowed chair) of Computational Biology at The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) for Genomic Medicine,USA. Peter N. Robinson is returning to the Charite at BIH with an Alexander von Humboldt Professorship in AI.
