Drs. Christof Koch and Emery Brown will describe the computational or experimental challenges associated with Big Data in their respective domains of neuroscience. From the basic to applied realms, science is being transformed by the collection of data on increasingly finer resolutions, both spatially and temporally. Storing, accessing, and analyzing these data create numerous challenges as well as opportunities.

Trans-NIH GeroScience Interest Group

The Trans-NIH GeroScience Interest Group (GSIG) cordially invites you to its summer seminar, featuring Dr. Nir Barzilai. Dr. Nir Barzilai is the director of the Institute for Aging Research at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and the Director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biology of Human Aging Research and of the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) Nathan Shock Centers of Excellence in the Basic Biology of Aging. He is the Ingeborg and Ira Leon Rennert Chair of Aging Research, professor in the Departments of Medicine and Genetics, and member of the Diabetes Research Center and of the Divisions of Endocrinology & Diabetes and Geriatrics.

Dr. Barzilai’s research interests focus on several key mechanisms involved in the biology of aging, including the effects of the environment (mainly nutrients) on extending life and the genetic determinants of lifespan. He discovered the first “longevity gene” in humans and is further characterizing the phenotype and genotype of humans with exceptional longevity through a NIH-supported Program Project. He has received numerous grants from several funding agencies, including the National Institute on Aging (NIA), American Federation for Aging Research, and the Ellison Medical Foundation. He has published over 200 peer-reviewed papers, reviews, and textbook chapters. He is an advisor to the NIH on several projects, initiatives, and study sections. He serves on several editorial boards and is a reviewer for numerous scientific journals. Dr. Barzilai has been the recipient of prestigious awards for his research, including the Beeson Fellow for Aging Research, the Ellison Medical Foundation Senior Scholar in Aging Award, the Paul F. Glenn Foundation Award, the NIA Nathan Shock Award, and the 2010 Irving S. Wright Award of Distinction in Aging Research.

The GeroScience Interest Group (GSIG) was formed to enhance opportunities for discussion of the intersection between the biology of aging and the biology of disease and conditions that are of interest across ICs. It is focused on basic biology, but with a longer view towards translation.

Please send your questions related to the seminar to kohanskir@mail.nih.gov.

ACHDNC provides expert advice and recommendations to the Secretary about the development of newborn screening activities, technologies, policies, guidelines, and programs for effectively reducing morbidity and mortality in newborns and children having, or at risk for, heritable disorders. In addition, the Committee’s recommendations regarding additional conditions/heritable disorders for screening that have been adopted by the Secretary are included in the Recommended Uniform Screening Panel (RUSP) and constitute part of the comprehensive guidelines supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration. The committee is composed of 15 voting members.

The August 2015 meeting will include
• A final evidence review report on the Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) condition nomination for inclusion in the RUSP o The Committee is expected to vote on whether or not to recommend to the Secretary the addition of ALD to the RUSP
• A presentation by the Newborn Screening Technical assistance and Evaluation Program (NewSTEPs) on their activities and the NewSTEPs data repository, a centralized and secure database designed for state newborn screening programs to explore data to meet program needs,
• Updates on the implementation of screening for Severe Combined Immunodeficiency, Critical Congenital Heart Disease, and Pompe Disease
• Updates from workgroups focused on cost analysis in newborn screening, newborn screening timeliness, and pilot studies for evidence-based reviews of conditions.

Time is allotted on both days for public comments.
