Breaking Barriers and Creating Opportunities for Underrepresented People in Data Science

Janani Ravi, PhD, assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, didn’t intend to challenge the status quo when she began her career in data science. But after several years of working diligently on her research in computational biology as a graduate student at Virginia Tech, as a postdoc at Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, and then as an independent researcher/faculty member at Michigan State University (MSU), she began to see a pattern emerge, particularly on the conference circuit.

Deep Learning with Enforced Data Consistency

news outletIEEE Xplore
Publish DateJuly 10, 2024

In this manuscript we explore a computationally efficient approximation to hard data consistency. We present results when adding this data consistency layer into two existing networks designed for MRI reconstruction. After retraining with the additional consistency layer, the networks show improved out-of-distribution performance and suppression of hallucinations.

phoenix: an R package and Python module for calculating the Phoenix pediatric sepsis score and criteria

news outletJAMIA
Publish DateJuly 10, 2024

The publication of the Phoenix criteria for pediatric sepsis and septic shock initiates a new era in clinical care and research of pediatric sepsis. The phoenix R package and Python module enable researchers to apply the Phoenix criteria to electronic health records (EHR) datasets and derive the relevant indicators, total scores, and sub-scores.

MENDS-on-FHIR: leveraging the OMOP common data model and FHIR standards for national chronic disease surveillance

news outletJAMIA
Publish DateJuly 10, 2024

The Multi-State EHR-Based Network for Disease Surveillance (MENDS) is a population-based chronic disease surveillance distributed data network that uses institution-specific extraction-transformation-load (ETL) routines. MENDS-on-FHIR examined using Health Language Seven’s Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (HL7® FHIR®) and US Core Implementation Guide (US Core IG) compliant resources derived from the Observational Medical Outcomes Partnership (OMOP) Common Data Model (CDM) to create a standards-based ETL pipeline.

Accelerated parallel magnetic resonance imaging with compressed sensing using structured sparsity

news outletSPIE
Publish DateJuly 03, 2024

Nick Dwork, PhD, and co-authors present a method that combines compressed sensing with parallel imaging that takes advantage of the structure of the sparsifying transformation.
