Título do seminário: "First steps at Adaptive Clinical Decision Support System for Personalized Medicine"
Orador: André Veríssimo
Data: 3 de Abril de 2014
Hora: 14 h
Local: Sala de reuniões do piso 4, Pavilhão de Mecânica III
The seminar will present the starting point to the PhD of André Veríssimo that aims at integrating different modeling techniques based on machine learning, statistics and dynamic systems. The objective is to design a system that is able to leverage a set of physiological variables to predict the diagnostic and outcome of clinical conditions. Helping clinicians to adjust preventive treatment and improve survival and recovery chances of patients that have high morbidity rates and few opportunities of positive outcomes.
In particular the work will focus on one of three conditions: prostate and breast cancer; sepsis; or HIV. This work will leverage André's background on bioinformatics and past work on developing new applications to better connect lab researchers with powerful tools (such as BGFIT).
