Date: May 9, 2023, 19:30h-21:00h
Where: Crew Hassan

Abstract: This work will allow the discovery of new applications of drugs to diseases, the identification of relationships between proteins and genes, or the prediction of disease progression taking into account the symptoms of many patients, based on identifying relationships between real clinical cases and entities of a biomedical nature present in scientific articles.
Bio: Diana is doing her PhD at LASIGE, the research center in computer science and engineering at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon. Investigates machine learning in the clinical and biomedical domain and natural language processing.

PubhD (from pub + PhD) is a free monthly event where PhD students explain their research in the informal atmosphere of a bar.
