About the Webinar

In our series on The Yosemite Project, we explore RDF as a data standard for health data. In this presentation, our speaker Dr. Michel Dumontier will explore the use of Semantic Web technologies to reduce the overwhelming burden of integrating clinical data with public biomedical data, and enabling a new generation of translational research and their clinical application.



About the Speaker

Photo of Michel DumontierMichel Dumontier is an Associate Professor of Medicine at Stanford University in the Stanford Center for Biomedical Informatics Research. His research focuses on methods to integrate large, heterogeneous clinical and biomedical data for discovery. His research interests include (1) developing novel therapeutics for rare and complex diseases, (2) elucidating the mechanism of drug-induced side-effects, and (3) optimizing multi-drug therapies to minimize undesirable side effects.
