The symposium, of which Dr. Kohane’s lecture is a part, will discuss the impact of Dr. Lindberg's leadership on the advancement of science through research training with emphasis on medical informatics, and the evolution of the library as a research partner, focusing on the evolution and expansion of access to knowledge, data, and research tools.
