Jan Baumbach

Professor and scientific coordinator, Technical University Munich - Feature Cloud

Jan Baumbach studied computer science at Bielefeld University in Germany. His research career started at Rothamsted Research in Harpenden (UK) where he worked on computational methods for the integration of molecular biology data. He returned to the Center for Biotechnology in Bielefeld for his PhD studies where he developed CoryneRegNet. Afterwards, at the University of California at Berkeley, he worked in the Algorithms group of Richard Karp on Transitivity Clustering, a novel clustering framework for large-scale biomedical data sets. From March 2010, Jan was head of the Computational Systems Biology group at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics in Saarbr├╝cken, Germany. In October 2012, he moved to the University of Southern Denmark as head of the Computational BioMedicine group. His research concentrated on systems and network biomedicine. He was study program coordinator of the Computational BioMedicine program from 2015 to 2017. In January 2018 he moved to the Technical University of Munich as chair of the Experimental Bioinformatics. In Munich, he develops computational methods for systems medicine and novel federated AI approaches ensuring privacy by design.

Description

When innovation learns from the best data available, health outcomes for patients improve. This is why, in the age of artificial intelligence, digitized data has become the key driver for innovation in healthcare. Furthermore, availability of health data across European countries accelerates the scale and scope of innovation. However, while there are huge amounts of data across hospitals, insurances and practices, there is lack of integration. As a result combining and exchanging data from various sources to develop innovative applications is a challenge. Moreover, legal and technical prerequisites for privacy-preserving data sharing are not implemented sufficiently in most European countries.

The focus of EBDVF health track is on European health dataspaces, healthcare applications as well as post-COVID healthcare systems. It will bring together representatives from the most important European health data initiatives to discuss lessons learned from previous projects, joint positions and possible roadmaps for European health data infrastructures and applications.
