RARECast: Harnessing Big Data to Work for Rare Disease Patients

September 2, 2016


The improved ability to generate and capture data is providing researchers with the potential for new insights into diseases, but the growing volume and complexity of the data has made it difficult to translate all of this into actionable information. We spoke to Spyros Mousses, founder and president of Systems Imagination, about the what the emerging world of Big Data means for rare disease patients, how it requires new ways of approaching scientific problems, and why innovative collaborations are becoming more important than ever to develop new therapies.

RARECast is a weekly series by Daniel S. Levine. Levine is an award-winning business journalist who has reported on the life sciences, economic development, and business policy issues throughout his 25-year career. He founded Levine Media Group in 2013, which produces The Bio Report and RARECast podcasts.
