The story about the great work that SUNY Buffalo has been doing to find a cure for Multiple Sclerosis with Revolution R Enterprise and IBM Netezza has generated a lot of attention, with stories in Forbes, InformationWeek and eWeek (amongst others). To continue the discussion, IBM has put together a panel for a "Tweet Chat" on Thursday (May 10) at noon Eastern time. I'll be there with the lead researcher Murali Ramanathan, Shawn Dolley from IBM and Tim Coetzee from the National MS Society. We'll be chatting about the search for a cure for MS, Big Data and analytics, in snippets of 140 characters or less. Join the conversation by following the #IBMDataChat hashtag at or in your favourite Twitter client.

When: Thursday, May 10, 2012 from 12:00-1:00 p.m. ET (find your local time)
Where: Twitter hashtag #IBMDataChat
