Event Information

Join us for GW Biomedical Cross-disciplinary Seminar Series: Connecting Academic Research & Inquiry Across Disciplines—a series of seminars that explore a new cross-disciplinary topic each year. For the inaugural year, the focus is "Inflammation in Chronic Disease: Cause, Consequence, or Both?" and will address both the treatment and prevention of chronic inflammatory diseases.

This lecture is on “Using Machine Learning to investigate Intestinal Inflammation” with Sana Syed, MD, MS, assistant professor of Pediatrics, University of Virginia School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology & Nutrition, UVA School of Medicine, and UVA Child Health Research Center.

Dr. Syed is a global health scientist with a background in pediatrics, gastroenterology and nutrition, and global health/epidemiology. She is on faculty at the University of Virginia in the Center for Global Health with an adjunct faculty appointment at the Aga Khan University, Department of Pediatrics and Child Health, Karachi, Pakistan with the overarching goal to study small intestinal structure and function in children who experience growth and vaccine failure in low- and middle-income countries around the world.

The seminar series is supported by departmental funding and the generosity of Ellen J. LaBelle, MD `74, associate clinical professor of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, and John Pan, MD, clinical professor, Department of Clinical Research and Leadership, and founding medical director, Office of Integrative Medicine and Health.
