                        Invited Talk: Computational Approaches for Bridging

                                               Genomics  and Health

                                                        Aidong Zhang 


                   Progress in biomedical research has reached a level that it is now
                   critical to merge the activities of computer scientist, mathematicians,
                   statisticians, and biomedical scientists for the purpose of addressing
                   grand challenges in medical research. In this talk, I will discuss 
                   research issues in biomedical computing which will contribute to
                   mid- and long-term research, development, and experimental

                   deployment of applications supporting the integration and analysis of

                   genomic, proteomic, and clinical data for diseases and treatment effects.
                   I will focus on the currect research trends in genomics and proteomics.
                   These research components and their correlations will help to
                   establish robust links between genomics/proteomics and human health

                   of a sort which can contribute to our knowledge of both diseases and
                   treatment of diseases.
