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.
RIT Croatia began a collaborative partnership with the Red Hat Academy (https://www.redhat.com/en/services/training/red-hat-academy), an open-source, web-deployed and web-managed education program designed to provide academic institutions, faculty, and students with courseware, training and learning materials, and other resources, related mostly to cloud computing, enterprise software development technologies, and Linux operating system.
Dr. Patekar’s life started out interesting from the very first moment; he was born in New Delhi, India, an exotic place of birth that often surprises his fellow Croatians. Coincidentally, his last name, which comes from the north of Croatia, is also a popular Indian last name (you might want to google Nana Patekar, for example).
Dr. Domagoj Tolić, who is currently teaching WMC/IT courses at RIT Croatia, was granted an ERASMUS+ KA107 project aimed at modeling and analysis of three-dimensional movements of fluid flows, in collaboration with Clarkson University, Potsdam, NY, USA.
Luxury experiences is one of the hottest segments of the tourism industry today, and experts predict that the luxury tourism shows the greatest potential for growth of any segment in the travel industry. RIT Croatia recognized this opportunity by enabling students to prepare themselves for careers in this niche specialty by choosing our program concentration called Designing Luxury Experiences.
