Dr. Callahan, a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at Columbia University Irving Medical Center, will present "Learning Deep Translational Patient Representations for Rare Disease Classification and Subphenotyping."
Dr. Callahan received her Ph.D. in Computational Biology from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in 2021 and is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Dr. Callahan’s Ph.D. thesis leveraged graph representation learning and neural-symbolic reasoning of large-scale biological knowledge graphs in order to develop realistic estimates of human disease mechanisms. She is currently applying these methods to improve the detection, prediction, and understanding of complex phenomena like phenotyping of pediatric rare diseases and adverse event detection.

We continue the CIRSS speaker series in Spring 2023 with a focus on “Knowledge Graphs and Semantic Computing”. We will meet on Fridays, 9-10am Central Time, on Zoom. To join a session, go to the current week’s session and click the “access” link, which will lead you to a calendar entry. There, click the “PARTICIPATE online” button to join a session. Recordings of past talks can be found next to "access" if available. The event is open to the public, and everyone is welcome to attend! This series is hosted by the Center for Informatics Research in Science and Scholarship (CIRSS). If you have any questions, please contact Jana Diesner and Halil Kilicoglu.
