What an exceptional showing for tranSMART at the Bio-IT World 2015 Conference in Boston! We came away with the Best in Show Award and the Michael J. Fox Foundation won a Best Practice Award for its use of the tranSMART platform.  Plus, scientists at the Hyve and CTMM won an award for their poster.   <BioIT 2015>

We also had our board meeting and the 3C Committees each met to plan out their activities for the rest of the year. And, we had another wonderful turnout for a Community Meeting on Wednesday evening, graciously hosted by ConvergeHEALTH by Deloitte in their Boston office. It was a nice evening and all of the presentations and a full recording are already posted.  <BioIT 2015>

Our social media team was out in full force during the conference and thanks to so many of you who are re-tweeting our posts and getting the word out.

Most interesting, was a demonstration in the IBM booth of Watson connected to the tranSMART platform. This is a research project underway in Yike Guo's (the Foundation's CTO) lab at the Imperial College.

Our sights are now turned to the Datathon. We are working hard to make this event a success with the best data sources and tools available to the participants. We are getting close to picking a date which will most likely be in late June or early July.

Congratulations to the entire tranSMART Community for an incredible show in Boston! It is the cooperation of all of us that is making tranSMART a great success!

Best regards,
