Michael Reich, Director of Cancer Informatics Development, Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard
Michael Reich has led the Cancer Informatics development team at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard (formerly Whitehead Institute’s Center for Genome Research) for the last ten years. His group’s software, which includes GenePattern, Integrative Genomics Viewer, GSEA, Molecular Signatures Database (MSigDB), Connectivity Map, and GeneCruiser, provides analysis and visualization of gene expression, SNP copy number, proteomic, epigenetic, small-molecule screen, and other types of genomic data for thousands of users worldwide. These developments are done in collaboration with the Institute’s computational biologists and research scientists as well as national initiatives such as The Cancer Genome Atlas, 1000 Genomes Project, the NIH Roadmap Centers for Biomedical Computing, and the Cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid.
Jim Robinson, Ph.D., Senior Software Engineer, Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT
James Robinson has been responsible for the design and development of genomics visualization tools for the Broad Institute’s Cancer Program for the past five years, including the Integative Genomics Viewer (IGV). James' work prior to the Broad includes the design and development of a wide variety of bioinformatics applications, including a gene expression data visualizer, clinical trials management systems, and compound library workflow systems, as well as technical leadership in the transcriptional profiling informatics group for Millennium Pharmaceuticals.
Helga Thorvaldsdottir, Senior Engineering Project Manager, Cancer Informatics, Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT
Helga Thorvaldsdottir has been responsible for project management of software initiatives in the Cancer Program of the Broad Institute for the past four years. Helga has held software engineering and management positions in bioinformatics and computer graphics, including projects developing scientific visualization software and graphics programming libraries. Prior to joining the Broad, Helga was on the senior management team of Iceland Genomics Corporation, where she managed the development of laboratory information systems and clinical data repositories.
This digital course provides special footage of all Bio-IT Keynote Sessions. The Tuesday and Wednesday Keynote presentations offered vivid examples of the current and future impact of technology in data for research and drug discovery opportunities. Also included as part of the Wednesday Keynote material is The Benjamin Franklin Award presentation. The Benjamin Franklin Award is given to an individual who has, in his or her practice, promoted free and open access to the materials and methods used in the life sciences. The Thursday Keynote panel featured a series of succinct, forward looking presentations. Special guest speakers shared their unique perspective on the future challenges facing the research, pharma, and medical communities.

About the Conference:
Bio-IT World Conference & Expo
Enabling Technology. Leveraging Data. Transforming Medicine.
Since its debut in 2002, the annual Bio-IT World Conference & Expo (www.bio-itworldexpo.com) has established itself as a premier event showcasing the myriad applications of IT and informatics to biomedical research and the drug discovery enterprise. The Conference attracts a highly influential audience consisting of senior level scientists, IT professionals and Executives from organizations across the life sciences industry including Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Health Systems, Academia, Government and National Laboratories. In 2011, over 2,000 delegates gathered from 29 countries to share information and discuss enabling technologies that are driving the drug discovery process and transforming medicine. The event features concurrent tracks with 160+ technology and scientific presentations.
