Judith W. Dexheimer, PhD
is a biomedical informatics researcher with an interest in clinical decision support systems with a goal of improving clinical care and patient outcomes. Her research focuses on decision support in the emergency department with an interest in the effectiveness and efficacy of alerts and reminders throughout the hospital.
Eric S. Hall, PhD
participates in a number of interdisciplinary teams investigating prematurity and neonatal disease. Along with coordinating data collection and exchange efforts, his work involves the application of knowledge discovery techniques to clinical data sets, as well as the development of software tools to assist in the summarization of clinical data and the modeling of clinical processes.
Kenneth M. Kaufman, PhD
investigates the genetics of complex and rare disorders using genotyping and next-generation DNA technologies. The goal of his research is to identify the underling mechanisms and genetics that lead to complex diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus.
Eric S. Kirkendall, MD, MBI, FAAP
Associate Chief Medical Information Officer, Information Services
performs research in patient safety, quality improvement, and resource utilization. He is particularly interested in the design and development of novel software and applications to address complex healthcare system challenges, employing techniques such as real-time data acquisition, advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, human factors, and user-centered design.
Kakajan Komurov , PhD
Member, Cancer Biology and Neural Tumors Program
and his lab integrate computational and experimental approaches to characterize targetable cancer vulnerabilities. Their driver projects include exploiting oncogene-induced stress pathways in cancer therapy, and the study of mechanisms, implications and therapeutic vulnerabilities imposed by the severe epigenetic defects in a subset of cancers.Visit the Komurov Lab.
Yan Xu, PhD
Director of Bioinformatics Core, Neonatology & Pulmonary Biology; Perinatal Institute
has research interests that include the identification of gene signatures, regulatory networks and biological pathways controlling lung development, maturation and diseases. She is actively involved in the development of detailed developmental lung-map via high-throughput single cell genomics to provide useful tools and resources for the lung research community.
