Plenary Speaker I

Prof. Satoru Miyano
The University of Tokyo, Japan

Satoru Miyano, PhD, is the Director of Human Genome Center, the Institute of Medical Science, the University of Tokyo. He received the B.S. (1977), M.S. (1979) and PhD (1984), all in Mathematics from Kyushu University, Japan. He is an ISCB Fellow. His research mission is to develop "Computational Medical Systems Biology towards Genomic Personalized Medicine, in particular, cancer research and clinical sequence informatics. He has been involved as PI with the International Cancer Genome Consortium, the Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Innovative Areas (MEXT) "Systems Cancer Research in Neo-dimension", and MEXT Priority Issues on Post-K computer "Integrated Computational Life Science to Support Personalized and Preventive Medicine". By massive data analysis and simulation with the supercomputers, his group is developing computational methods to link differences in our genomes to diseases, drugs, and environmental factors with systems understanding.

Speech Title: "Arrival of Oncologists Armed with AI-Powered Exoskeletons"

Abstract: We have been running cancer clinical sequence based on whole genome, whole exome, panels, RNA sequencing and epigenetic analysis at our institute. When focused on hematology/oncology, it takes five days for a patient from signing informed consent (IC) to receiving diagnosis. This five-day process consists of IC, specimen collection, whole exome sequencing, whole exome sequence data analysis, interpretation/translation of mutations by oncologists, determining the diagnosis combined with all pathological data and returning the result (therapy if any) to the patient. Therapies are not only drugs but also hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. A pipeline Genomon for analyzing cancer genomes and RNA sequences by next-generation sequencers plays one of the key roles. It is running on the supercomputer system SHIROKANE at our Human Genome Center. The bottleneck of interpretation/translation was drastically resolved by employing IBM Watson for Genomics in harmony with our in-house human curation pipeline. We report how our system works as a conglomerate of oncologists, cancer biologists, bioinformaticians augmented with Watson and Genomon.

Plenary Speaker II

Assoc. Prof. Jamaluddin Mahmud
Universiti Teknologi MARA, Malaysia

Assoc Prof Ir Dr Jamaluddin Mahmud obtained his PhD degree in (Biomechanical) Engineering from Cardiff University UK; MSc (Manufacturing) Engineering degree from International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM); and B.Eng. (Hons.) Mechanical Engineering degree from Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM). He joined the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering UiTM as a lecturer in 2001 and currently he is an Associate Professor. He has served UiTM Management Team at various levels such as a Deputy Dean, Head of Academic Programmes and the Head of Industry Linkage at the Chancellery’s Office of Industry, Community and alumni Network (ICAN). He has more than two years of industrial experience, working as a service executive at UMW Equipment Sdn. Bhd. His competency in mechanical engineering supported by his past experience in industry and current involvement with industries has enabled him to register as a Professional Engineer (Ir) with the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM). Assoc Prof Ir Dr J Mahmud has been lecturing on Biomechanics, Composite Materials, Finite Element Method and Engineering Design, which happens to be his areas of research interest and has published more than 100 technical papers in journals and conference proceedings locally and internationally. Due to his expertise and experience, he has been appointed as a judge in design competitions, external examiner, keynote speaker, panel evaluator, visiting researcher and a member in various technical committees at national and international level.
