3rd Brown Bag Lunch

Last week’s Brown Bag Lunch was hosted by the Medical Informatics Group of University of Zurich. Prof. Krauthammer provided an overview of our group’s overall aim and projects we are currently working on to our colleagues from the Research Data Service Center (RDSC) at UniSpital Zürich (USZ) . We are glad about the good collaboration with the team of the RDSC, which enables great research by providing us with high quality data.

Secure Data Exchange Using Distributed Ledger Technologies

Secure data exchange and integration is essential in medical informatics as it enables and accelerates evidence based medicine. Therefore we are very interested in related topics. Last October we invited Lucas Antelo as an external speaker. During his talk he presented the outcome of his bachelor thesis “Secure Data Exchange Using Distributed Ledger Technologies”. Lucas studied medicine at University Hospital Zurich followed by a computer science degree at Freie Universität Berlin.

2nd Brown Bag Lunch

Last week, the Research Data Service Center (RDSC) of UniSpital Zürich (USZ) hosted the 2nd event of our jointly conducted series of Brown Bag Lunches. Patrick Hirschi, Data Engineer at the RDSC, gave a presentation about the teams Data Platform development. He explained the current status of the Data Warehouse, which hosts existing and newly generated clinical data into a state-of-the-art database system. This enables us and our colleagues to work on the latest datasets, in the near future even in real-time, thus accelerating research in personalized medicine.
