  • UM Awarded $500K, 2 Yr AHA Grant for project focused on predicting hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM)

    UM researchers were recently awarded a $500,000, two-year grant through the American Heart Association (AHA) for a project focused on predicting the presence of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) in patients who were previously undiagnosed from common tests available in the electronic health record like electrocardiograms and echocardiograms.

    The project lead is Sardar Ansari, PhD, Research Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine. Co-investigators include Precision Health Co-Director Brahmajee Nallamothu, MD, Adam Helms, MD, & John Donnelly, MSPH, PhD, all of UM Michigan Medical School. They’ll be working alongside other sites including John Hopkins, UT Southwestern & Stanford University.

  • Multimodal AI model may guide personalized treatments for tuberculosis

    The team of University of Michigan researchers, led by Precision Health member Sriram Chandrasekaran, Ph.D., associate professor of biomedical engineering, and postdoctoral fellow Awanti Sambarey, Ph.D. developed a multimodal AI model to predict treatment outcomes of tuberculosis (TB) patients.

    “TB is the world’s deadliest infectious disease, affecting millions of people each year. The goal of my lab is to develop new innovative solutions to stop the spread of drug resistant pathogens like those that cause TB,” Chandrasekaran said.

  • Evaluation of Sepsis Prediction Models before Onset of Treatment

    Although sepsis models generally aim to predict onset, clinicians might recognize & treat before the sepsis definition is met. Researchers have not previously investigated the accuracy of sepsis risk predictions that are made before treatment begins.

    UM researchers, staff, & faculty from Michigan Medicine and the College of Engineering leveraged Precision Health’s Implementation resources to evaluate the discriminative performance of AI sepsis predictions made throughout a hospitalization relative to the time of treatment. Authors include Precision Health members & staff; Karandeep Singh, Tom Valley, Jessica Virzi, & Jenna Wiens – Precision Health Co-Director.
