The Bio-IT World Conference and Expo kicks off tomorrow in Boston. Microsoft is a platinum sponsor of this event. The research and product development being done in the life sciences and healthcare industries are having a tremendous impact. Many of these efforts require a large volume of computation. Bio-IT World is where thought leaders at the forefront of this work come together to share knowledge and help advance the state of the science.
Representatives from our genomics team will be on hand in booth #446 to showcase Microsoft’s solutions for secure and scalable genomics work. Our Azure Specialized Compute team will demo how Azure’s high performance computing offerings can help researchers get simple, managed access to the compute resources they need, whatever that need may be. In addition, our partners at DNAnexus will be presenting a demo in the Microsoft booth from 3:30 to 4:00pm on Wednesday.
Jason Stowe, Principal Group Program Manager in the Azure Specialized Compute team will be an instructor for the Bootstrapping your life science startup workshop on Tuesday afternoon. On Wednesday morning, he will introduce the plenary keynote. In this session, a panel of experts will discuss data science issues in life sciences.
Jason will also give a talk titled Solving practical challenges for futuristic workloads in the cloud track at noon on Wednesday. This talk shares lessons from over a decade of helping customers adopt cloud for traditional HPC workloads as well as new *omics and AI workloads. Jason presents lessons from cloud adopters including how to achieve the governance you need to accelerate life sciences innovation.
If you’re at Bio-IT World, we look forward to seeing you in booth #446.
