Woman in Tech of the Week (12/28/16)
Mary Stenzel-Poore, Senior Associate Dean for Research, Oregon Health and Sciences University
Big data and analytics are taking a personal approach in the battle against cancer. The Collaborative Cancer Cloud is an initiative for Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU) and Intel. By using the open Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution combined with precision medicine, the partners are seeking to elevate an institution’s ability to analyze vast amounts of patient DNA to treat cancer.
Mary Stenzel-Poore, senior associate dean for research at Oregon Health and Sciences University, was the recipient of one of the “Top 10 Women in Cloud” Innovation Awards for her contribution to the project. (CloudNOW is a non-profit organization of prominent women involved in cloud computing and converging technologies, which supports women within the community.)
Lisa Martin (@Luccazara), host of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s mobile live streaming studio, was on the ground during the CloudNOW 5th Annual “Top 10 Women in Cloud” Innovation Awards in Mountain View, CA, and had the opportunity to speak to Stenzel-Poore about the collaboration and her role in the project.
This week, theCUBE spotlights Mary Stenzel-Poore in our Women in Tech feature.
