The Enabling Precision Health and Medicine Bass Connections team is gearing up for its second year, working to further develop and expand infrastructure for the WearDuke Initiative.
Faculty member Christopher Woods is a principal investigator in new DARPA project.
Bass Connections is currently offering several opportunities for Duke faculty.
On August 23, Lori Orlando, M.D., MHS, added another title to her name: Master of Management in Clinical Informatics.
CAGPM faculty members Geoff Ginsburg, Lori Orlando and Rebekah Wu co-authored three papers published in The Lancet.
Brotman Baty Institute (BBI) welcomed several world leaders in genomics and precision medicine to their Scientific Advisory Board, including director Geoff Ginsburg, M.D., Ph.D.
The Enabling Precision Health and Medicine Bass Connections team, led by Susanne Haga has been renewed for the 2019-2020 school year.
A new Bass Connections project, the Smart Toilet: A disruptive technology to improve health and wellness, led by Geoff Ginsburg, has been funded for the 2019-2020 school year.
Ephraim Tsalik is one of five finalists for the Antimicrobial Resistance Diagnostic Challenge through NIH. He will receive a grant to further develop his prototype and supply it for testing to two CLIA-certified independent laboratories.
Micah McClain received a 4-year Merit Award from the VA to explore the host genomic response to rickettsial infections in human patients and develop novel PCR-based tests that are capable of accurately diagnosing Spotted Fever Group rickettsii and Scrub typhus infections, which will allow for better therapeutic decision making.
CAGPM faculty published a paper in The Lancet discussing family health history and how it is underused for actionable risk assessment in patients.
Geoff Ginsburg and team review the major technologies used in genomic medicine, discuss approaches to interpret genomic sequence variants, identify publicly available tools for genomic test interpretation, and address barriers to using genomic information in routine practice.
Susanne Haga discusses current and potential approaches to guiding PCP’s to better navigate the unfamiliar terrain of genetic and genomic testing.
Orlando was co-author of a paper focusing on the international efforts to build evidence for the optimal return of disease risk genetic variants and use of this data within routine clinical care.
Ryan Shaw along with several colleagues at Duke discuss protocol for a study seeking to expand the use of mobile technologies to generate real-time data to enhance self-management strategies in those with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Tsalik, Henao and Woods and colleagues developed Average Weighted Accuracy (AWA), a pragmatic evaluation of diagnostic utility.
The laboratory brings together expertise in molecular microbiology with genome sciences to develop next-generation diagnostic tests.
We support biobanking activities including IRB, sample collection, processing, storage, bar-coded chain of custody and e-inventory management.
