The Association for Pathology Informatics (API) and Sunquest Information Systems will present tomorrow the second webinar in its current series entitled: Computational Pathology: IT Support for Basic Research in Pathology. Date and time are Wednesday, October 15, 2014, at 1 PM EDT/10 AM PDT. The lecture will be delivered by Michael J. Becich, MD, PhD, Chairman and Professor of Biomedical Informatics and Pathology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
This webinar will focus on how and why computational pathology is integral to the future of pathology. Dr. Becich will discuss the role of pathology in biomedical research and it's increasing value in the evolution of personalized medicine and big data. Whether it be genomic data from sequencing in the clinical and research labs, whole slide imaging, quantitative image analysis or bioinformatics, the value of pathology data and IT to support research is critical for a department's academic success. Key learning objectives for Dr. Becich's presentation include:
- Define computation pathology
- Define the various components for Pathology research IT support and their relationship to computational pathology
- Present the approach the University of Pittsburgh has taken over the years to develop a robust research IT infrastructure in Pathology to support biomedical research
