EOSC Future grant: Isabelle Perseil – Scientific computing for life science


The focus of the ambassadorship is raising awareness for the opening of data in the personalised medicine domain, and to help this large community to take the necessary steps forward, with the multiple barriers that are particularly present in France, due to a very strict and complex legislation concerning personal and sensitive data. We have a triptych of actors involved: the RDA and its domain-related Working Groups and Communities of Practice, EOSC and its services dedicated to communities, and the community for Machine Learning for Personalized Medicine.

Though there are many personalized medicine projects in Europe, most of the data are far from being open and shared. Proposed activities are the following:

  1. To propose lines of development around personalized medicine to the RDA health an AI RDA working/interest groups (a liaison exists already)
  2. To interact with IHI (formerly IMI) and EOSC, as a “liaison” so that the EOSC Life Science could also provide a portfolio of services around personalized medicine
  3. To provide an input to the European communities of data scientists for personalized medicine such as guidelines.

Persons and Organisations

Dr. Perseil manages a group of experts which provides the best practices in software engineering, Data Management, Big data, deep learning, HPC, Grids, Cloud Computing, parallel computing to 300 research units (1200 research teams). The Computational Science Coordination is working with 13 regional administrations and 23 regional Mesocenters to pool the computational resources (grids and HPC) and train more than 1000 engineers and researchers to HPC (OpenMP, MPI and now ORWL) and Big data (MapReduce, Hadoop, Spark, Flink, Storm). Isabelle Perseil has taught UML at Ecole Centrale de Paris for 15 years and supervised Daniel Salas thesis (defended in sept,2019). Dr Isabelle Perseil is a member of the EUDAT Sensitive data working group Dr Perseil is involved in the GOFAIR initiative (creation of the Bioinformatics IN). Furthermore, Isabelle Perseil is involved in many European research projects, among them: EOSC-LIfe, an INFRAEOSC-04 accepted European project headed by ELIXIR, in which Isabelle Perseil is co-leading WP6:FAIRification and provenance services.
