Dr. Saeed Hassanpour Wins 2019 Agilent Early Career Professor Award

Saeed Hassanpour, PhD, an assistant professor of biomedical data science at Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine, and an adjunct assistant professor of epidemiology at Geisel and of computer science at Dartmouth College, is the winner of the 2019 Agilent Early Career Professor Award.

This year's award focused on "contributions to the development of breakthrough artificial intelligence solutions advancing cancer diagnostics based on image analysis of pathology slides."

Professor A. James O'Malley is the recipient of the 2019 ISPOR (International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research) Award for Excellence in Methodology in Health Economics and Outcomes Research

The award is given to an exceptional paper that advances the field of health economics and outcomes research and is expected to have a substantial impact on the field with anticipated wide acceptance and application by others. Professor O’Malley’s paper, "Modeling a Bivariate Residential-Workplace Neighborhood Effect when Estimating the Effect of Proximity to Fast-Food Establishments on Body Mass Index,” developed new statistical methodology for studying the risk of geographical factors on a health outcome (e.g., increased body mass index).

Spring 2019 workshops for i2b2 and REDcap announced

This spring, SYNERGY will be running a series of workshops for two informatics tools, REDCap and i2b2.

REDCap is a secure web application for building and managing online surveys and data.

i2b2 is a patient cohort discovery tool. Are there enough eligible patients to support my study? How many patients are taking a certain medication? For how long? Find out using Dartmouth i2b2.

Each workshop includes a light breakfast.
