We’re big believers in multidisciplinary team science, and know that collaboration is often necessary to take research in new and exciting directions. Innovations that once seemed impossible for researchers working in isolation are now becoming a reality as they each bring

Turning big data into big knowledge

 

Our Clinical Decision Support Unit supports predictive medicine solutions by harnessing the power of big data and real-time analytics.

 

That’s why we have created a Big Data Ecosystem that cleans, time-aligns and prepares data, using it to then create and deploy advanced analytics that run in real-time. Once in our platform, researchers can analyze the data and create models that can be deployed to our run-time environment. 

As the medical industry evolves, there is a need for advanced analytics that make use of data in motion to solve medical problems by making real-time predictions and eventually prescriptive actions. However, moving to advanced analytics requires a robust tool set and ecosystem.

This symposium begins with a 'state of the art' discussion, followed by the release of a Request For Proposal. We then invite the most promising proposals to 'pitch' their idea to an expert panel
 


TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY

It is often the minutes and hours following a traumatic brain injury (TBI) that can determine whether a patient lives or dies. There has been little advancement in developing diagnostic tools and treatments, which is why we partnered with the Joyce and Don Massey Family Foundation to fund innovative solutions that could improve outcomes after severe TBI.


SEPSIS

Sepsis or 'blood poisoning' occurs when the body's natural response to infection becomes unbalanced, runs out of control and leads to multiple organ damage. Difficult to diagnose, and even harder to treat, sepsis claims more lives than any cancer. Our researchers were challenged to undertake the difficult task of finding new ways to address the current sepsis treatment gaps.

The K12 Career Development Program in Emergency Critical Care Research

With the help of their mentoring team, scholars are able to design their three-year development plan including academic courses, professional development training, and research milestones. Through training in clinical trial design, grant writing, data management, and leadership, scholars will advance their research career with the goal of obtaining individual K or R01 funding by the end of their third year of K12 support.

Thanks to NIH funding, MCIRCC offers a multi-year, multidisciplinary training program in emergency critical care research. Scholars may choose mentoring teams led by nationally known senior clinician-scientists in Emergency Medicine, Pulmonary and Critical Care, Neurology, General and Trauma Surgery, Cardiovascular Disease, Biomedical Engineering, and Biostatistics. This gives trainees an understanding of all phases of emergency critical care research.


Program Co-directors: David J. Pinsky, M.D. (U-M Samuel Frankel Cardiovascular Center) and Robert Neumar, M.D., Ph.D. (U-M Emergency Medicine)
