Seid Research Lab

The basic science behind what to do to improve health include genetics, biology, and chemistry, and physiology; the basic science behind how to do it right is behavioral and social science. The Seid Lab applies behavioral and social science to answer the question ‘What does it take to make sure the right treatment gets to the right child in the right way at the right time, every time?’ We take a noncategorical approach to answering this question, as there are many more similarities than differences across diseases in what it takes to get things right. We also recognize that answering this question requires expertise from many areas: patients and families; clinicians; social scientists like psychologists, sociologists, economists, and anthropologists; designers; story-tellers and artists; systems engineers; organizers; technologists; health informaticians; and epidemiologists and other statisticians.

In our lab, we have created and replicated collaborative learning health systems or Learning Networks. These networks have improved outcomes for pediatric patients with a range of different medical conditions.

Other research interests stem from applied research in medical settings and human systems. I feel very satisfied to apply my interests in human systems, research training, and experience in applied research in healthcare settings to solve problems that matter. All of the discoveries that I participated in have been collaborative endeavors.
