New computational opportunities and challenges have emerged within the cancer research and clinical application areas as the size, number, variety, and complexity of cancer datasets have grown in recent years. Simultaneously, advances in computational capabilities, with exceptional growth in deep learning, are expected to continue to reach unprecedented scales. This seminar brings together interested individuals ranging from clinicians, mathematicians, data scientists, computational scientists, engineers, developers, leaders and others with an interest in advancing the use of computation at all levels to better understand, diagnose, treat and prevent cancer.

Eric Stahlberg, Ph.D.
Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research

Dr. Stahlberg was named director of Biomedical Informatics and Data Science (BIDS) at the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research in September 2018. He has been instrumental in establishing the Frederick National Laboratory's high-performance computing initiative and in assembling scientific teams across multiple, complex organizations to advance predictive oncology. Stahlberg has played a leadership role in many key partnerships, including a major collaboration between the NCI and the Department of Energy (DOE). Under the Joint Design of Advanced Computing Systems for Cancer (JDACS4C), NCI and DOE are accelerating progress in precision oncology and computing. The collaboration is rooted in three major national initiatives; the Precision Medicine Initiative, the National Strategic Computing Initiative, and the Cancer Moonshot. Stahlberg has spearheaded the Frederick National Laboratory's contributions to a number of JDACS4C projects, including ATOM and CANDLE. Dr. Stahlberg holds a Ph.D. in computational chemistry from The Ohio State University.
