Session Summary

Wednesday, April 24, 2013, 10:00-11:00 AM

There is an urgent need to translate genome-era discoveries into clinical utility, but the difficulties in making bench-to-bedside translations have been well described. Large funding initiatives have led to the systematic measurements of many relevant aspects of biology, from transcription and translation to the workings of pharmacology. But very little of this data is actually ever used beyond the handful of papers that introduce these data to the world.

The nascent field of translational bioinformatics may bridge these opportunities. Dr. Butte’s lab at Stanford builds and applies tools that convert more than 300 billion points of molecular, clinical, and epidemiological data -- measured by researchers and clinicians over the past decade -- into diagnostics, therapeutics, and new insights into disease. Dr. Butte, a bioinformatician and pediatric endocrinologist, will highlight his lab’s work on using publicly-available molecular measurements to find new uses for drugs including drug repositioning for inflammatory bowel disease and discovering new treatable inflammatory mechanisms of disease in type 2 diabetes, and how patients presenting with whole genome sequences can be evaluated. As the new Principal Investigator of ImmPort, the long-term, sustainable data warehouse of immunological data generated by NIAID-funded investigators, Dr. Butte will highlight how molecular and clinical trials data can be shared and reused to drive scientific discovery.
