Talk at AMIA Informatics Summit 2019

The AMIA Informatics Summit is one of the most prestigious conference in the medical informatics sector. We presented MedChain, the blockchain-based solution proposed by DPPH for the management of identities and access control rights in a clinical research networks that aim at providing strong guarantees in terms of auditability and accountability of the actions performed in the network.

The Swiss Blockchain Winter School

The Swiss Blockchain Winter School is a follow-up event to the Swiss Blockchain Summer School 2017 and an IACR Cryptology School. The goal of the event is to bring together students, academic researchers, industry professionals and government employees for an in-depth exchange on the latest trends and developments in cryptocurrencies, distributed ledger technologies, decentralized applications, and decentralizing trust. Distributed ledger technologies and decentralized trust systems are integral to achieving the goals of DPPH/PHRT of building an accountable and privacy-preserving data-sharing platform without relying on centralized entities.

Talk at the GA4GH Plenary Event

DPPH is a Swiss response to growing concerns about health data privacy. it is a project whose goals are highly aligned with those of GA4GH, dimensioned for the Swiss scale, but with an international vision. With participation from five research groups across the ETH Domain and the Swiss Data Sciences Center, the project will (i) address the main privacy, security, scalability, and ethical challenges of data sharing for enabling effective P4 medicine; (ii) define an optimal balance between usability, scalability and data protection, and (iii) deploy an appropriate set of computing tools.
