Dr. Sabine Österle is currently the Team Lead for the Data Interoperability subteam and interim co-lead of the BioMedIT team at the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB). She oversees and manages the Personalised Informatics Group (PHI) portfolio and related activities towards achieving the interoperability goals/FAIR data in the Swiss Personalised Health Network (SPHN).  The PHI runs the Data coordination centre of the SPHN and BioMedIT. 

The SPHN is an initiative of the Swiss Federal Government, namely the State Secretariat for Education, Research, and Innovation (SERI) and the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH). We will discuss how SPHN builds a dynamic scalable decentralized infrastructure based on a network with existing players in Switzerland. And how it aims to make health (e.g. clinical routine data) and health-related (e.g. cohorts, genomics, proteomics) data FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable and usable).
