Cambridge Networks Day 2013 Poster

 

The beginning to 2013 has been extraordinarily hectic with new projects being rolled out, so it's quite fitting that my first post of the year nicely coincides with the network science conference organised at the University of Cambridge. As last year we were treated to an abundance of riches as speaker after speaker fired our synapses, and stimulated connections in our brain that possibly weren't there before!

It's always a privilege to have the opportunity to meet scientists who truly are at the frontiers of science, and meet the bright stars of the future. It was a particular honour to meet the legend Albert-Laszlo Barabasi, Cecilia Mascolo and Felix Reed-Tsochas. The impact of Barabasi's brilliance was further evident in the presentation given by Jorg Menche who works in Barabasi's lab. His presentation on 'Human Diseases within the Interactome' was one of those talks that just salivated the mind with a gourmet of ideas that makes one marvel at what could be possible in transforming how we treat disease.

I look forward to next year's feast.
