Connecting at the Nexus of Data and Health

What do machine learning (AI), imaging, bio-storage, and identifying every bacteria, virus, parasite, and fungus have in common? They all require huge amounts of data storage and analysis.

Join us as four health and research experts discuss their use of data, how it is changing their fields, and how small companies can capitalize on it to build and sustain a business.

The health sector is undergoing a massive transition from precision medicine to bioinformatics and gene therapy, and the overall way in which patients and providers interact.

Wearable devices and “smart” technology are interfacing with traditional health, digital medicine is developing drugs that transmit data after they are taken, and treatments for cancer and other diseases are targeted to the genes of the individual patient. Research and development and the analysis and storage of biomaterial is highly technical and new tools and applications are being created constantly.

Data and analysis techniques will drive the next wave of health, and small business is key to this success. With the data and fiber infrastructure in Loudoun, this region is poised to be the future hub of health innovation technology.

Come find out why.
