Phil Verhoef, MD, PhD of the Department of Medicine has been awarded an ITM Pilot Award for his research in treating sepsis, an infection that kills more than 250,000 Americans each year. Watch the video to learn about how Dr. Verhoef uses the Clinical Research Data Warehouse to study why and how allergies may protect people from sepsis and translate this knowledge into new treatments.
At the 2016 Advances in Neuroblastoma Research meeting, CRI Director Sam Volchenboum presented a demo of the International Neuroblastoma Risk Group (INRG) Data Commons. The Data Commons, built by a UChicago team including the Center for Research Informatics and Center for Data Intensive Science, brings together phenotypic information and genomic data related to neuroblastoma. Researchers can perform complex cohort discovery, then conduct genomic analysis in a secure, high-performance environment. To learn more about how the Data Commons works, watch Sam’s demo above.
