In 2004, the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard launched with a mission to improve human health. Since that time, biology and medicine have evolved in astonishing ways, and so have we. Our community now includes more than four thousand scientists, software engineers, and more, with collaborations in more than three dozen countries.
We think the amazing pace of scientific progress is a story worth sharing. In celebration of our 15th anniversary, in 2019 and 2020 we hosted a series of public talks that trace the evolution of key fields of science and medicine over our first 15 years, and look ahead to how these fields might continue to evolve in the future.
We invite you to experience the entire series of Broad@15 talks, and to share them with your family and friends.
Sequencing & data science
Genome sequencing technologies are getting faster while costing less, fueling a surge in the volume of data produced worldwide and sending engineers and data scientists scrambling to create the infrastructure that can store, share, and analyze it all at an unprecedented scale. Sequencing leader Stacey Gabriel, data strategist Danielle Ciofani, and machine learning scientist Puneet Batra will discuss the beginnings of this new era in biomedicine, one where sequencing and data sciences hold the potential to push our understanding of human disease in unforeseen directions.
