The amount and complexity of biomedical data available for research and
healthcare are assuming dramatic proportions as a consequence of
advances in data acquisition techniques. Not only a vast amount and
variety of data can be acquired about living organisms, but also the
throughput and resolution (spatial, spectral, time, etc.) are ever
growing. Moreover, a wealth of information about life style, disease
history and clinical parameters is also available in hospital databases
and (electronic) patient files. This radical increase of biological and
clinical data creates completely new challenges and opportunities in
life sciences and transforms life science research in an information
science. A shift in the methodologies used for data analysis and
management is required to address the increasing challenges, where
information and communication technologies (ICT) play an essential role.
At the AMC we adopt Web and GRID technologies to enable and enhance
biomedical research, participating in the on-going global research
effort to develop what is termed "cyberinfrastructures" in the USA, and
"e-Science infrastructures" in Europe. In particular we collaborate with
the Dutch e-Science Grid (BiGGrid project) and the Biomedical virtual
research community established during EGEE projects. The e-Bioscience
group currently has activities covering data analysis in the areas of
medical imaging, next generation DNA sequencing and proteomics.
This talk will present an overview of the activities of this group with
the goal of identifying areas of possible collaboration with USP


Silvia D. Olabarriaga was born in Porto Alegre, Brazil. She graduated in
Informatics at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS,
Brazil) in 1982. After working two years in the Brazilian computer
industry (EDISA) as a software engineer, she went back to Informatics at
UFRGS to obtain a Master's degree Computer Graphics. Her dissertation
was about 3D computer animation (1987), which remained her main reseach
topic at INESC, Lisbon (1988-1989) and as a lecturer at the Informatics
Institute at UFRGS (1990-2002). From 1994 on, her interests moved into
Scientific Visualization and Image Processing, with focus on medical
applications. She obtained a PhD in Computer Science in 1999, at the at
the University of Amsterdam, NL, with the thesis Human-Computer
Interaction for the Segmentation of Medical Images. From April 2002
until February 2005 she worked as a research fellow at the Image
Sciences Institutes, UMC-Utrecht, NL, in medical image segmentation
(CT). In March 2005 she joined the Virtual Laboratory for e-Sciences
projectat the Informatics Institute of the University of Amsterdam. Her
main interests since then include the development, usage and evaluation
of grid technology for to enable and enhance advanced biomedical
(imaging) applications (e-Science).
In 2007 Silvia moved to the Academic Medical Center and became leader of
the Medical Diagnosis and Imaging subprogram (SP1.3) of the VL-e
project. In May 2008 she joined the Bioinformatics Laboratory as a post
doctoral fellow. Silvia is since Jan 2009 assistant professor at the
Bioinformatics Laboratory of the Department of Clinical Epidemiology,
Biostatistics and Bioinformatics (KEBB) of the AMC and leads the
e-Bioscience group.

Todos são bem-vindos.
