Introduction to R #3, led by Madhurima Kaushal and Aditi Gupta at the Institute for Informatics, will introduce advanced visualizations using the ggplot2 package in R. Those interested please register by clicking here.
This workshop will introduce participants to the foundational theories and methods needed to design, deploy, and manage clinical information systems, as well as extract and analyze the data produced by such platforms. It is designed for participants without formal training in the computational science and biomedical informatics domains, but who are familiar with either healthcare research or operations, such as clinicians, administrators, and technologists.
This talk, part of the Institute for Informatics (I2) Special Speaker Seminar Series, will feature Dr. Peter J. Tonellato, Professor of Bioinformatics in the Department of Health Management & Informatics and Founding Director of Center for Biomedical Informatics (CBMI) in the School of Medicine at the University of Missouri in Columbia. He has led initiatives to study, test and predict the accuracy and clinical efficacy of genetic discoveries and accelerate their translation to practical clinical use.
This talk will feature Dr. Samantha McNulty, Instructor in Pathology and Immunology at Washington University School of Medicine. Dr. McNulty will be presenting “Integrating Copy Number Variation into Routine Clinical NGS Testing.”
Redefining our Understanding of Disease, Outcome, Phenotype and the Impact of Genetic Architecture through Electronic Health Records
This talk, part of the Faculty Recruit Seminar Series, will feature Sarah Pendergrass, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Biomedical and Translational Informatics Department at Geisinger Research, presenting how to redefine our understanding of disease, outcome, phenotype and the impact of genetic architecture through EHRs. Dr. Pendergrass is a Genetic Bioinformatician focusing on high-throughput data analysis and data-mining projects for uncovering the genetic architecture of complex traits.
Sex and the Young Adult: Mobilizing Health and Economic Data in Prevention of Sexually Transmitted Diseases
The Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS), in collaboration with Venture Café, is hosting Precision Medicine Series on the third Thursday of every month! This month, Dr. Fahd Ahmad will present “SabERmetrics and the Data Driven ER,” and Dr. Rupa Patel will present “The Bang for Our Buck: Let’s Use Implementation Science to End the HIV Epidemic.”
This year, the American Medical Informatics Association’s annual symposium, the foremost symposium for the science and practice of biomedical informatics, revolves around the theme “Data, Technology, and Innovation for Better Health.” Four faculty members at the Institute for Informatics (I2), Drs. Joanna Abraham, Tiffani Bright, Philip Payne and Po-Yin Yen, will present at this conference. Andrea Krussel (Program Manager), Cynthia Marich (Associate Director), and Alice Hoette (Team Lead of Informatics Core Services) will display a poster in the Poster Session 2 at this conference.
