Computational methods are permeating all aspects of medicine—from understanding the basic nature of disease, to developing more effective therapeutics, to precisely diagnosing and treating individual patients. Focusing on precision medicine, systems pharmacology, and clinical decision support, this one-day conference highlights advances in computational medicine within Pittsburgh and across the nation.
The Computational Medicine Conference is free to attend; however, space is limited. We ask that you register for the conference by Friday, October 25, 2019.REGISTRATION
Attendees will have an opportunity to display posters from relevant research fields during the lunch session.
