COMSYS @ PerMediK Workshop

COMSYS researchers gave two presentations on medical privacy at the latest PerMediK action workshop.


In September, Johannes Lohmöller and Jan Pennekamp took part in the workshop held as part of the COST Action CA21165 PerMediK. The European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) is a funding agency for research and innovation networks, and through the funding of PerMedik, it supports the development of a path towards personalized medicine in chronic kidney disease (CKD), based on multidimensional -omics data (Big Data).

The workshop took place in Loutraki, Greece and involved participants from over 13 countries in Europe. For the training group, Johannes and Jan gave an hour-long presentation called "Guardians of the Health Galaxy: Navigating Medical Data Privacy", which primarily focused on privacy-preserving data publishing in the medical context. On the next day, they gave a 30-minute talk with the title "The Boon and Bane of Data Privacy" in front of the PerMediK working group. In addition to looking at various angles of this aspect, they also circled back to the learnings we had and developments we observed as part of contact-tracing technology during the COVID pandemic.

COMSYS is looking forward to continuing this fruitful interdisciplinary exchange between medicine and computer science in the future. We kindly thank the organizers for having us.
