Dr. Warren A. Kibbe is Acting Deputy Director of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the director of the Center for Biomedical Informatics and Information Technology (CBIIT) at the NCI, visited Duke University Medical Physics Graduate Program on April 07, 2017. In his lecture, he discussed cancer moonshot, data sharing, and the genomic data commons. After the seminar, Medical Physics Graduate Program students meet with Dr. Kibbe for Q&A session, where students had an opportunity to discuss the ability to manage and analyze diverse, and often extremely large, collections of data — whether high-throughput genomics data, clinical data, or annotated medical images, asked career advice, gain information about his background. NCI created CBIIT to lead the coordination, development, and deployment of enterprise-wide digital capabilities (including biomedical informatics, scientific-management information systems, and computing resources) in support of the Institute’s initiatives. Through CBIIT, NCI is helping to speed scientific discovery and facilitate translational research by using IT, informatics and Data Science to address complex research challenges. InformationWeek named Dr. Kibbe a Top 25 Innovative Healthcare CIO for 2012.
