Exploiting Large Scale Human Genetics Data to Advance Pharmaceutical Research in Aging Related Diseases

Time: 5:30 pm
day: Day One


  • Through a public-private partnership, we have successfully generated whole genome sequence on all 500,000 samples from volunteers in the UK Biobank
  • Linked with rich phenotype data collected on these individuals, we have the capability to enable better understanding of the biology of aging related diseases
  • We will outline our efforts to develop and deploy computational infrastructure and data science capabilities to translate this massive data set into pharmacological insights
  • We encourage engagement with academic and industry partners to facilitate and advance our therapeutic strategy to discover and deliver safe and effective medicines in
