I-HDS/TCI Seminar Series

I-HDS in collaboration with TCI invites you to join its weekly Seminar Series held on Mondays at 10:00am in the Levy Library. Our featured guest will be Umut Özbek, PhD,  Assistant Professor, Icahn School of Medicine.


Ovarian cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer death. It’s estimated that there will be 22,440 new cases and 14,080 deaths of ovarian cancer in the US in 2017. To improve the treatment of ovarian cancer patients, it is of great importance to accurately identify the patients with relatively low survival. In this study, our goal is to use network analysis to derive genomic signatures useful to predict the overall survival in ovarian cancer patients.


Dr. Özbek received her PhD from the University of Pittsburgh. Her primary focus is on statistical genetics and genetic epidemiology. Her other interests include cancer clinical trials, longitudinal multivariate modelling, penalized regression methods, high-dimensional data analysis, and pharmacogenomics. Dr. Özbek has an extensive consulting experience in designing and analyzing clinical and experimental trials.
