Northern Data Debates 4: A Healthy Trust in Data?
The fourth in a series of five hybrid Northern Data Debates igniting spirited conversations with world-leading experts ### About this event <br> Health is one the most exciting and challenging application areas for data science and artificial intelligence. Data-driven healthcare represents a paradigm shift for medicine, with huge potential for personalised, preventive healthcare and for early interventions. This is enabled by the progressive integration of digital health records with multi-omics data and medical imagery, as well as with self-monitoring data coming from personal wellness wearables—and all alongside advances in our capacity to manage, analyse and extract insights from the data at scale. However, these technologies also bring new and old challenges to the fore, around privacy, ethics, and ownership of personal information. In this Northern Data Debate, our panel of experts unpacks the latest developments, and debates the myriad promises and challenges that surround innovations in healthcare and data Sponsored by the Alan Turing Institute, the National Innovation Centre for Data and Newcastle Data. Our compere for the evening will be Herb Kim, CEO Thinking Digital.

Conference: Synthetic Biology UK 2022
Synthetic biology and engineering biology are radically altering the way we do science and how new technologies and products will shape and change the societies we live in. The UK synthetic biology community has been shaping the field since its early inception, growing from strength to strength with loci of excellence to be found across the length and width of the nation. __SBUK, the UK's premier synthetic biology and engineering biology conference will bring us all together at Newcastle to share our best science.__ The SBUK 2022 scientific programme will explore the state-of-the-art in the field, new and emerging opportunities across a range of scientific disciplines and application areas as well as provide opportunities for the scientific community - especially early career scientists - to engage with bio and nanotech companies and start-ups. The conference will be a fantastic opportunity to discover what's new in: - bioprocess engineering - microbial communities - mammalian synthetic biology - cell free synthetic biology - responsible innovation - microbial-plant interactions - computational and automation approaches to engineering biology - the interface of biotechnology and nanotechnology - applications of engineering biology to sustainable and smart materials, buildings and societies. Oral communication slots are available at this meeting. All attendees, particularly researchers in the early stages of their career, are invited to submit a poster abstract for consideration as an oral communication.
