The database is housed at the Fairfield Museum and History Center. Database manager Alec Lurie will discuss his research process for creating biographical profiles from disparate sources and highlight several case studies from among the more than one thousand people enslaved in the town of Fairfield. As descendants of African people enslaved in Fairfield, Diane Ciccone and Kyle Bass will share their emotional, intellectual, and creative journeys for exploring their family histories.

      Join the Yale Alumni Art League in partnership with Sugarcane Magazine and the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami for an In-Conversation and reception with the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Dean of the Yale School of Art, Kymberly Pinder ’89 MA, ’95 PhD and Didier William '09 MFA in celebration of the largest retrospective of his career, “Didier William: Nou Kite Tout Sa Dèyè.”

      Translated as “We’ve Left That All Behind,” the show presents an in-depth look at the North Miami-raised artist’s career and memory among the very neighborhood where he once grew up.

      Curated by Erica Moiah James, Ph.D, the exhibition will feature over forty works spanning multiple mediums, and including some of his newest paintings. Complementing the painted work, and speaking to the close relationship of painting and printmaking in William’s practice, are new drawings and artist books. The show also includes William’s first monumental sculpture: a 12-ft.-tall wooden body emblematic of a religious column present in Haitian worship rituals.

      Yale School of Medicine Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry Professor, Dr. Mark Gerstein, published the paper ‘Storing and Analyzing a Genome on a Blockchain’, implementing an approach to use blockchain technology as a tool in genome analysis.

      Due to the technical challenges related to storing genomes in a blockchain infrastructure, many blockchain genomics companies use blockchains as a log-keeping infrastructure. In the study, Dr. Gerstein’s group presented “…the first open-source, proof-of-concept private blockchain network, which allows for efficient storage and retrieval of personal genetic variants.”

      Join the Yale Alumni Health Network (YAHN) for a discussion with Dr. Mark Gerstein and Sandra Ro, CEO of the Global Blockchain Business Council (GBBC) and YAHN HealthTech Chair, on the findings from Dr. Gerstein’s publication, and insights into how blockchain can be used to restore data ownership and integrity when it comes to genomics research and beyond.
