Professor and Chair, Department of Biomedical Informatics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine
Lang Li is currently the Chair of the Department of Biomedical Informatics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. Dr. Li was previously the T.K. Li Endowed Chair in Medical Research at Indiana University School of Medicine, where he served as director of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics and associate director of the Indiana Institute of Personalized Medicine.
Dr. Li has developed an international reputation for the use of biomedical informatics and systems pharmacology to evaluate drug efficacies and adverse drug events. Taking advantage of various large-scale biomedical data sources, he and his team successfully discovered and validated epidemiological and pharmacological data for drug interactions, including loratadine/simvastatin-induced myopathy. His translational research has been extensively funded by awards from the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation, and he is author of more than 175 manuscripts. He currently serves as investigator, co-investigator or mentor on 12 research awards totaling greater than $2 million a year in funding.
Gordon S. Marshall Professor of Engineering Technology at the University of Southern California.
Roger Ghanem has a BE form American University, a MS and a PhD from Rice University. His research is on probabilistic modeling and computational stochastic mechanics; quantitative models for the propagation of uncertainty in physical systems; structural dynamics and earthquake engineering; identification and control of dynamical systems; probabilistic multli-scale modeling.
Professor and Director at Stony Brook University, Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics and the Institute for Advanced Computational Science
Robert Harrison is a distinguished expert in high-performance computing. Through a joint appointment with Brookhaven National Laboratory, Professor Harrison has also been named Director of the Computational Science Center at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Prior to Stony Brook, Dr. Harrison was at the University of Tennessee Knoxville and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where he was Director of the Joint Institute of Computational Sciences, Professor of Chemistry and Corporate Fellow. He has a prolific career in high-performance computing with over one hundred publications on the subject, as well as extensive service on national advisory committees.
Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin.
Shi Jin has a BS in Computational Math from Peking University and a PhD in Applied Math from University of Arizona. He is interested in the general area of numerical computation and applied analysis of physical problems. He has conducted research in numerical and applied analysis of hyperbolic conservation laws, kinetic theory, Hamilton-Jacobi equations and front propagations, computational fluid dynamics, quantum dynamics, high frequency waves, and uncertainty quantification.
