Dr. Robert White, resident in anesthesiology and a Van Poznak Research Scholar, and Christian (Ian) P. Tope, a project manager in the Center for Perioperative Outcomes, are the recipients of an NIH-funded fellowship to support their work on big data in healthcare.
The Big Data to Knowledge Fellowship (BD2K) provides fellows with the opportunity to attend a weeklong research education program titled “Big Data Coursework for Computational Medicine” (BDC4CM). The program will emphasize how to navigate the interface between research and practice through lectures, case studies and hands-on training from leading researchers.
“The fellowship gives us the opportunity to learn from the experiences of industry pioneers, and acquire new knowledge about ways to utilize technologies in interpreting data to further the mission of the CPO,” said Tope.
BDC4CM is jointly sponsored by Weill Cornell Medicine, Johns Hopkins Medicine and the University of Minnesota. The program takes place at Weill Cornell Medicine in July.
