Clinician Coders Workshop: Network Medicine

18 September 2017

12:00 – 17:00, followed by a drinks reception. Lunch will also be provided.

 

ParoXysmic and the UCL Academic Careers Office are delighted to announce a Clinician Coders workshop on Network Medicine for UCL clinical academic trainees on 18 September 2017.

Building on UCL’s track record in health informatics teaching, the Clinician Coders programme will enable clinical academics to effectively use data science to complement their existing research. The programme combines e-learning in basic programming and informatics with face-to-face problem solving sessions to cement learning and foster multidisciplinary working. We aim to inspire and excite students by using real data and solving real problems.

This workshop is a pilot for the face-to-face component of Clinician Coders and will appeal to clinical academic trainees who have an interest in the use of databases and programming.

At the centre of the workshop will be a hands-on and collaborative problem-solving session around network medicine in a supportive and fun environment. Working with research data on protein-protein interactions, we will use databases (no programming skills required) and programming to set up networks and solve network problems. There will be tutors on hand to help if you get stuck at any point.

Coding will use either MATLAB or Python, both of which are pre-installed on the cluster room computers. Participants can also bring and use their own laptop.

Clinician Coders is a development of the successful SysMIC online course in maths, computing and statistics for life scientists.

 

Details:

Venue: Room 105 - Public Cluster, 25 Gordon Street, UCL London, WC1H 0AY

Time: 13:00 – 17:00, followed by a drinks reception. Lunch will also be provided.
