CS700:Graduate Seminar in Computer Science & Informatics

Public Health and Translational Science at Emory CCI: Biomedical Informatics in Infectious Disease and Human Genetics

Technological innovations in information technology such as collaborative Grid platforms can create opportunities to bridge the worlds of basic science, clinical research and health care. In this talk we will discuss some of the potential offered to translational science by biomedical informatics research, using a couple of public health use cases being investigated at the Emory Center for Comprehensive Informatics: HIV/AIDS and Newborn Bloodspot Screening.
Dr. Tirado-Ramos holds an appointment as Assistant Professor at the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Emory University School of Medicine, and as Senior Scientist at the Center for Comprehensive Informatics. Previously, he worked on Grid-based distributed decision support for biomedical informatics at the University of Amsterdam's Informatics Institute, The Netherlands, where he receieved a PhD in Computational Science on component-based high-speed teleradiology at the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ, and on modeling and methodologies in health informatics interoperability at Philips Research North America in New York.
