The GHGA Lecture Series "Advances in Data-Driven Biomedicine" is a monthly virtual event series of scientific talks, presenting the fascinating world of data-driven medicine and their ethical, legal and social implications. We aim also to provide a platform for interactive discussion, so we encourage all participants to actively participate in the Q&A section after the lectures.

Invited guest lecturers are outstanding international researchers from different disciplines across omics data sciences. Selected on excellent academic merit and significant contributions to their respective fields, they actively shape international research agendas.

We invite you to join us monthly on Wednesdays from 16:00 to 17:00 (CET) via Zoom. All lectures are held in English, each lecture is free and open to everyone. Past lectures can be found in our GHGA YouTube Channel.

You can register for the whole lecture series here and never miss #GHGAtalks again!

We are very happy to receive feedback or ideas for further GHGA Lectures. Feel free to contact us using the contact form on this page or on Twitter.
