Large scale datasets collected by Information Technologies have continued to have an increasing role in nearly every sector of the economy over the past decade and will continue to do so in the next. Despite national goals of achieving interoperability of electronic health records (EHRs) and enhanced clinical decision making, health data remains fragmented. Dr.

Zezong Gu

(Biograph) Research in the Gu Laboratory focuses on the studies of neurodegeneration from traumatic brain injury (TBI) and cerebral ischemia. Studies include aging-related neurodegeneration on cognitive dysfunction, neuropathology, neurochemistry and proteome alternation in animal models. The mechanistic and translational investigations will aid for the development of biomarkers, preventive and therapeutic strategies. The Gu Laboratory uses

Xiu-Feng (Henry) Wan

Dr. Wan’s long-term career goals are to understand how zoonotic pathogens (especially influenza A viruses) emerge and re-emerge at the animal-human interface and to improve the effectiveness of the influenza vaccines in disease prevention and control by developing and applying systems biology based translational approaches. Translational systems biology is an integrated, multi-scale, evidence-based approach that

Sonal Patil

I am a health services researcher and family physician interested in improving individual and population-level health outcomes in low-resource communities (rural/underserved). I aim to identify capacity for “upstream” community-based interventions to create sustainable integrated clinic-community partnership interventions. I have experience conducting systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and pilot quantitative and qualitative studies.
