Exploring Inherent Connections: Dr. Alexander Jarasch, German Center for Diabetes Research

09 Aug, 2019



Diabetes is one of the most prevalent diseases worldwide. The German Center for Diabetes Research (DZD) seeks to investigate the causes of the disease and, through new scientific findings, to develop effective prevention and treatment measures. This involves combining research data sources from genetics, epigenetics and metabolic pathways with data from clinical studies. In this week’s five-minute interview (conducted at GraphConnect 2018 in NYC), we spoke with Dr. Alexander Jarasch about how DZD uses Neo4j to connect myriad sources of heterogeneous data into a knowledge graph. #KnowledgeGraph #ConnectedData #MedicalResearch
