Dr. Berghout received her PhD in Biochemistry from McGill University in Montreal, QC where she researched the genetics of complex traits and susceptibility to infectious disease in humans and mouse models. Following that, she spent three years as the Outreach Coordinator for the Mouse Genome Informatics (MGI) database in Bar Harbor, ME. There, she trained researchers in genetics, genomics, data structures and data mining to answer biological questions, and worked closely with other members of the MGI group to develop and optimize the MGI resource. Now her research interests include genetics of all kinds, personalized medicine, big data, and scientific communication. She is currently pursuing projects in precision medicine for analysis of transcriptome data from patients with rare lung diseases (Sarcoidosis, Coccidiomycosis), and integrative network analysis of complex traits including Alzheimer's Disease. She is currently appointed at the University of Arizona's Center for Biomedical Informatics and Biostatistics (CB2) and The Center for Genetics and Genomic Medicine (TCG2M) in Tucson, AZ.

Gary has research interests primarily focussed on statistical (and reporting) aspects in developing and validating multivariable prediction models. He has published over 100 papers on clinical trials, observational studies, systematic reviews, quality of life, propensity scores and prediction models.
Gary is a statistical editor ("hanging committee") for the BMJ.
Gary also led the development of the TRIPOD Statement for reporting clinical prediction models - www.tripod-statement.org.

Dr Martin Daumer: Director of the SLCMSR e.v. - The Human Motion Institute in Munich and managing director of the IT company, Trium Analysis Online GmbH. He is also visiting lecturer for Telemedicine and Clinical Applications of Computational Medicine at the Technical University Munich.
Dr Daumer received a diploma in Physics in 1990 and a Ph.D. in mathematics from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich in 1995, after having worked at CERN, Switzerland, and Rutgers University, USA.
Dr José Derraik was born in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), but moved to New Zealand in 1995. José has a very broad academic background, with a BSc and MSc in Ecology from the University of Otago (New Zealand), and a PhD in Public Health (University of Otago). His MSc examined invertebrate biodiversity in human-modified habitats. His PhD focused on vector ecology, more precisely on mosquitoes in New Zealand and how the threat of a mosquito-borne disease outbreak has been affected by ongoing anthropogenic environmental change. José then worked as a Senior Advisor for MAF Biosecurity NZ, where he provided expert advice to the NZ government on biosecurity threats to human health.
In 2008, José joined the Liggins Institute (University of Auckland) where he has been working on paediatric research, as well as on a number of clinical trials in adolescents and adults at risk of metabolic disease. His research focuses primarily on the long-term effects of early life events (such as preterm or post-term birth) in childhood. However, José has recently been appointed as an honorary research associate at Uppsala University in Sweden, where alongside his Swedish colleagues he has been examining also the long-term effects of early life events in adulthood.
Lastly, José is currently involved in a large multi-institutional project (A Better Start) in New Zealand, with a leading role in a number of studies aiming to predict, prevent, and mitigate childhood obesity in the country.
Professor of Toxicology (Chair for Evidence-based Toxicology), Pharmacology, Molecular Microbiology and Immunology at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Baltimore, and University of Konstanz, Germany; Director of their Centers for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT). Former Head of the European Center for the Validation of Alternative Methods (ECVAM), Ispra, Italy.
My research has covered a range of topics, including human-computer interaction, information visualization, bioinformatics, universal usability, security, privacy, and public policy implications of computing systems. I am currently working on a variety of NIH-funded projects, including areas such as bioinformatics research portals, visualization for review of chart records, and tools for aiding the discovery of animal models of human diseases.
