To solve the most pressing scientific problems, scientists today often face enormous hurdles when it comes to gathering the data they need to embark on research. Enter Ramkumar Hariharan, a data scientist and computational biologist at Northeastern University in Seattle. A scientist and an engineer, Hariharan's current research is centered around an emerging scientific field called geroscience, or the "study of aging as it relates to age-related diseases." Hariharan has been trying to understand the reasons why some cancer patients respond better to certain kinds of immunotherapies. To do so requires lots of information about the patients themselves, the specific forms of cancer and the drugs used to treat patients.
