SOCR News & Events: Annual NIDA-NIAAA Frontiers in Addiction Research Mini-Convention at SfN

Logistics

Outline

The Mini-Convention presents cutting-edge topics in addiction research. The agenda will include the 2018 Jacob P. Waletzky Memorial Award Lecture and the following sessions: Data Science Approaches for Addiction Research, Effects of Early Life Adversity on Substance Use-Related Circuity, and Novel Opioid Receptor Signaling. It will additionally showcase research by premier early career investigators. Hosted by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA).

Dr. Dinov's Talk

  • Title: Open Data Science and Predictive Health Analytics
  • Abstract: This talk will provide a brief overview of data science and its relation to addiction, mental health, and aging. We will present examples of advanced analytical techniques and protocols for representation, modeling, interrogation, and visualization of complex, heterogeneous, multisource, incomplete, multiscale, and time-varying data. Applications to biomedical and healthcare case-studies will be demonstrated using national and international open-access data archives.
