Biomedical data continues to grow at exponential rates and is beginning to surpass the rate of technological advancements (e.g., Moore’s Law). In addition to biomedical literature (as indexed by MEDLINE) and molecular sequence data (as available from the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration), recent legislation in the United States is also leading to increased amounts of electronic health record data.

This presentation will provide an overview of the significant infrastructure available for organizing and navigating such types of biomedical data. The discussion will then shift to exploring the challenges that will likely be faced for the future of data management, with particular emphasis on development and use of knowledge representation formalisms (e.g., ontologies). The presentation will conclude with a summary of opportunities, both from a research as well as a pragmatic perspective, for the next generation of scientific data management.

INDRA NEIL SARKAR, PHD. MLIS


Director of Biomedical Informatics, Assistant Professor of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, & Assistant Professor of Computer Science, University of Vermont

Dr. Sarkar is the Director of Biomedical Informatics and Assistant Professor in the Center for Clinical and Translational Science, Assistant Professor of Microbiology & Molecular Genetics, and Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the University of Vermont. His work is dedicated to furthering biomedical informatics research agenda across the entire spectrum of biomedicine, from molecules to populations. Ultimately, his research aims to enable the creation of testable models of disease and provide a framework to enable the assessment of comparative hypotheses across the spectrum of biomedicine and health care. Dr. Sarkar is a graduate of Michigan State University, received his PhD in Biomedical Informatics from Columbia University, and an MLIS from Syracuse University with a Certificate in Advanced Studies in Digital Libraries.
