Researchers hope the innovations and treatments they are currently investigating will be able to help patients with a traumatic brain injury in the future. To treat a TBI, researchers are thinking outside the box. The nation’s leading experts and researchers are coming together at the Joyce Massey TBI Summit to discuss the most pressing challenges and how to work together to find innovative solutions.
Andrew Rosenberg, MD, chief information officer for Michigan Medicine, mentioned to Health Data Management that the organization currently has 34 ongoing AI and machine leaning projects including the MCIRCC developed automated computer algorithm that utilizes data from a single lead of a non-invasive electrocardiograph signal for analysis and early identification of hemodynamic decline.
MCIRCC Associate Director Scott VanEpps, M.D., Ph.D., FACEPhas been named a Taubman Emerging Scholar effective September 1, 2019. The grant is given to support early-career physician-scientists at the assistant professor level.
A small, portable breath monitor developed at the University of Michigan can quickly and accurately detect acute respiratory distress syndrome, an often deadly disease that causes fluid to leak into the lungs and demands early diagnosis.
A new Michigan Medicine study authored by MCIRCC members found that implementing a dedicated emergency medicine department-based intensive care unit improved patient survival rates and lowered inpatient intensive care unit (ICU) admissions.
Amid growing federal concerns regarding "foreign influence" on research activity, some federal agencies have issued statements emphasizing the need for increased transparency with respect to international collaborations. Failure to comply could jeopardize the ability of faculty and the university to receive federal support for research.
Congratulations to four students on Dr. Kayvan Najarian's research team who recently won awards from the National Institutes of Health and the University of Michigan Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department!
