    Moving scientific discoveries into the “real world” effectively, efficiently, and safely are core principles of translational science. With the advent of big data analytics and data derived from multiple sources, it has become increasingly clear that utilizing data from real-world contexts opens another key layer of the translational science process.

  • From music streaming platforms to social media feeds and search engines, algorithms are used behind the scenes to tailor services to the unique preferences of individuals. Though the use of algorithms has been explored in health care since the origins of artificial intelligence, new strides in deep learning methods over the last decade are allowing clinicians to go after mass amounts of data that

  • The Foundations of Biomedical Data Science at the University of Virginia hosted its fifth annual Biomedical Data Science Innovation Lab (BDSIL): Challenges in Brain Analytics and Data Integration on June 21-25, 2021. The BDSIL is an intensive program partially sponsored by iTHRIV and NIH Grant #R25GM139080 that has virtual and in-person components designed to foster the development of

    The NCATS Life Course Research Visual Toolkit is an asynchronous population health science series broken down into broader themes within the discipline. Life course research embraces the complexity of health and disease development, tackling the extensive interactions between genetics and the environment. Recent advances in computational analytics, computer science, and data collection allow for

  • Although cough and fever have been considered the most tell-tale signs of COVID-19, in May, researchers published a study suggesting that loss of smell and taste were better able to predict who would test positive for the disease. The insight came from data shared by millions of individuals who logged on to a phone app to report what, if any, symptoms they were experiencing on a given day. The

  • Behind-the-scenes efforts at Harvard University lead to large-scale contact tracing in Massachusetts. Contact tracing, along with testing and quarantining, is a cornerstone of infectious disease control in absence of a vaccine. Thanks in part to behind-the-scenes efforts at Harvard University, Massachusetts was first in the nation to start large-scale contact tracing of those testing positive for
