She currently coordinates the NCI Informatics Technology for Cancer Research Program and is on the leadership team for the NCI Cancer Genomics Cloud Pilots. Dr. Klemm received her undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of Utah and her PhD in Biology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she performed structure-function studies of protein-DNA interactions though x-ray crystallography. She was subsequently a Jane Coffins Childs postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University, studying protein export from the nucleus during T-cell signal transduction. Prior to joining NCI in 1997, Dr. Klemm worked at Incyte Corporation where she was responsible for the management of genomic information products, and 3rd Millennium, where she served as the Head of Scientific Consulting.
Session Abstract – PMWC 2017 Silicon Valley
Session Synopsis: Data aggregation and data sharing efforts exist all over the world yet there is no platform or ecosystem that brings all of these efforts together. What are the challenges of creating a universal approach to data sharing (such as Cancer Moonshot) versus private and/or proprietary approaches that are trying to differentiate themselves? In this session you will hear from industry leaders who have direct experience in the world of data sharing and data aggregation. You will get a better understanding of the true challenges behind data sharing efforts and what it will take to create a universal movement that will benefit all stakeholders.
