Pandemic Preparedness and Systems Genetics: Preview Hot Topics in Kidney Health From Distinguished Speakers at WCN’23

Hear from renowned plenary speakers at our global kidney care gathering, the ISN World Congress of Nephrology 2023, in Bangkok, Thailand, from March 30-April 2.

Dr. Barney Graham on “Rapid COVID-19 Vaccine Development and the Future of Pandemic Preparedness.”

Dr. Olga Troyanskaya on “Systems Genetics, Precision Medicine and the Kidney.”

Dr. Barney Graham is the former Deputy Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Vaccine Research Center, USA. He has developed novel vaccines and monoclonal antibodies for several viral diseases, including the COVID-19 mRNA vaccine, for which he has been widely recognized.

He is currently a senior advisor for Global Health Equity and a professor of Medicine and Microbiology, Biochemistry, and Immunology at Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, USA.

Dr. Olga Troyanskaya is a professor at the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics and the Department of Computer Science at Princeton University. She is deputy director of genomics at the Center for Computational Biology at the Flatiron Institute of the Simons Foundation.

Her lab employs machine learning and modeling techniques to decode genomes and understand cellular specificity, genotype-phenotype relationships, and cellular networks.
