Abstract

Network science, together with machine learning and computational modeling, lays out a roadmap for the further development of bioinformatics towards a more efficient exploitation of single-level as well as multi-omics. Network-based inference and integration provide great opportunities to develop innovative methodologies that lead to new insights into candidate biomarkers, repurposed drugs, and disease-related mechanisms, supporting and enhancing the vision of Network Medicine.

Network-based methods and tools for mechanism understanding, drug repurposing and biomarker discovery, developed by the Bioinformatics Department at CING will be presented.

 

About the Speaker

george spyrouProf. George M. Spyrou is the Bioinformatics European Research Area Chair Holder and the Head of the Bioinformatics Department (C-BIG) at the Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics (CING). He is the Bioinformatics Course Coordinator at the Postgraduate School of CING where he has been elected as full Professor.
He is a Senior IEEE Member and he serves as member of the Editorial Board in well-known bioinformatics-related journals.
 
His work is focusing on the design and development of computational methods for the discovery of complex patterns of biomarkers, the understanding of underlying molecular mechanisms and drug repurposing though network-based analytics and systems bioinformatics.

 


 

 
About the EuroCC-2 project

EuroCC 2 will work to identify and address the skills gaps in the European High Performance Computing (HPC) ecosystem and coordinate cooperation across Europe to ensure a consistent skills base.

The role of EuroCC 2 is to establish and run a network of more than 30 NCCs across the EuroHPC Participating States. The NCCs act as single points of access in each country between stakeholders and national and EuroHPC systems. They operate on a regional and national level to liaise with local communities, in particular SMEs, map HPC competencies and facilitate access to European HPC resources for users from the private and public sector.

EuroCC 2 delivers training, interacts with industry, develops competence mapping and communication materials and activities, and supports the adoption of HPC services in other related fields, such as quantum computing, artificial intelligence (AI), high performance data analytics (HPDA) to expand the HPC user base.

 


 

This project has received funding from the European High-Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (JU) under grant agreement No 101101903. The JU receives support from the European Union’s programme Digital Europe and Germany, Bulgaria, Austria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, France, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg , Slovakia, Norway, Switzerland, Turkey, the Republic of North Macedonia, Iceland, Montenegro and Serbia.
