Co-director of i2b2, A National Center for Biomedical Computing

Biomedical discovery science is increasingly hungry for large numbers  
of well phenotyped patients paired to corresponding biomaterials. Dr.  
Kohane will describe how the informational by-products of healthcare  
delivery can be harnessed to deliver phenotypes and biospecimens with  
the same volume and cost efficiency achieved by genomics measurement  
technologies. These solutions are now available as free and open  
source toolkits but require a highly engaged and competent group of  
information technologists.
