Final HEXAnord meeting Copenhagen 12-14 Sept 2012

Our Nordforsk funded researcher network HEXAnord had its final meeting in Copenhagen at Panum Institute where our host CBS (Center for Biological Sequence Analysis) that belongs partly to DTU and to University of Copenhagen partly is situated. 27 members of the network participated in the 7th HEXAnord meeting and we had two invited speakers; Konstantinos Pantazos from IT University of Copenhagen, that talked about visualization of lab-processes in a health care domain and Lars Juhl Jensen that talked about the Reflex Text mining tool for molecules in scientific journals. Moreover three of our hosts Peter Jensen, Lars Juhl Jensen and Søren Brunak had a review article in Nature (May 2012) with the title Mining electronic health records: towards better research applications and clinical care. That shows the potential of our research area, therefore we were inspired to extend our network to an European COST-network that we are applying for now. We finalized our meeting with a visit at Copenhagen Tivoli.
