Professor Jack Li of the College of Medical Science and Technology (CoMST) at Taipei Medical University is currently visiting the Translational Cancer Research Network (TCRN) to help shape a new translational Cancer Bioinformatics course which is currently being developed by TCRN and UNSW.. His seminar will examine the availability of tools and data sets that can facilitate this transformation and will present examples and evidence of how this transformation will change the way we look at biomedical research forever.        
Professor Li has been a strong proponent and innovator in the creation of interoperable electronic health records, and his development of a national health information exchange for Taiwan led to his receiving a National Health Contribution Award, Taiwan’s highest honour for contributions to the nation’s health. 
"The exponential accumulation of genomic and clinical data is now at a juncture of critical transformation that will lead to an era where results of basic research can be aggregated and translated into clinical practice at an accelerated pace” - Professor Jack Li.
