I love Ted Talks. We watch them around here fairly often.
In March, Stephen Friend of Sage Bionetworks spoke on the need to find individuals who have all the genetic risk for a disease but don't develop the disease.
Last week, Sage Bionetworks announced a challenge to "rapidly identify accurate predictive AD biomarkers...that can be used to improve AD diagnosis and treatment." This is a big data project and teams will be making use of existing data sets.
Best of luck to the teams!
