We are happy to announce and to invite you on our next Science and Research Seminar that will be held by our Alumni Mateo Sokač on the topic "The path from Big Data to Precision Medicine”.
Seminar will be held on Wednesday, April 17, 16:30-18.00 at VC room in Zagreb and Room 15 in Dubrovnik.
Abstract: Personal medicine or also known as precision medicine is crucial for medical staff, providing information how and when to intervene. With the recent advancements in high-throughput profiling technologies, collections of large study cohorts, and the developments of data mining algorithms, big data in biomedicine (bioinformatics) is expected to provide novel insights into health and disease states, which can be translated into personalized disease prevention and treatment plans. However, the human body contains the amount of data that is measured in petabytes, which makes it complicated to store, analyze or interpret. Working with human genome is intertwined with many fields of science making this process extremely difficult but also interesting to be part of.
Most students who join RIT Croatia say that writing essays in high school was boring, unimportant or even traumatic. In this informal talk, Rebecca will share her experience helping students engage and enjoy their own writing while freeing them from some of the obstacles that have held them back in the past. She explains her "logic and magic" approach to writing, developed over nearly 20 years of teaching at RIT Croatia.
On behalf of Research and Scholarship Committee we are happy to invite you to join our next seminar delivered by Peter Schmidt on the topic of "Does a Tax Exemption of Retained Profits Provide Investment Incentives? - Evidence from Croatia 2013-2016"
This talk familiarizes the audience with nonlinear and networked control systems starting off with real-life examples.
