About ISMB

The Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB) conference brings together computational biology researchers of every career stage from around the world. Hosted by the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB), ISMB has grown over 22 years to become the world's largest bioinformatics/computational biology conference.

ISMB

ISMB attracts top international scientists in the life sciences and offers a strong scientific program and the broadest scope of any international bioinformatics/computational biology. Topics of interest include sequence analysis, evolution and phylogeny, comparative genomics, protein structure, molecular and supramolecular dynamics, molecular evolution, gene regulation and transcriptomics, RNA biology, proteomics, systems biology, ontologies, databases and data integration, text mining and information extraction, and human health.

In addition, join us prior to ISMB on July 11 & 12 to participate in the Special Interest Group Meetings, Satellite Meetings,Student Council Symposium and Tutorials.

Attend ISMB July 13-15, 2014 to present your research, learn about the latest developments in the field, network with colleagues, and help shape the future of computational biology and bioinformatics!

Biography

Isaac (Zak) Kohane is the director of the Children's Hospital Informatics Program and is the Henderson Professor of Pediatrics and Health Sciences and Technology at Harvard Medical School (HMS). He is also the co-Director of the HMS Center for Biomedical Informatics and Director of the HMS Countway Library of Medicine. Dr. Kohane leads multiple collaborations at Harvard Medical School and its hospital affiliates in the use of genomics and computer science to study diseases (particularly cancer and autism) through the perspective of biological development. He also has developed several computer systems to allow multiple hospital systems to be used as "living laboratories" to study the genetic basis of disease while preserving patient privacy. Among these, the i2b2 (Informatics for Integrating Biology and the Bedside) National Computing Center has been deployed at over 52 academic health centers internationally.

Dr. Kohane has published over 200 papers in the medical literature and authored a widely used book on Microarrays for an Integrative Genomics. He has been elected to multiple honor societies including the American Society for Clinical Investigation, the American College of Medical Informatics, and the Institute of Medicine. He leads a doctoral program in genomics and bioinformatics at the Division of Health Sciences and Technology at Harvard and MIT. He is also a practicing pediatric endocrinologist and father of three energetic children.
