Associate Professor (Research) of Medicine (BMIR) and, by courtesy, of Health Research and Policy
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Desai is the Director of the Quantitative Sciences Unit. She is interested in the application of biostatistical methods to all areas of medicine including oncology, nephrology, and endocrinology. She works on methods for the analysis of epidemiologic studies, clinical trials, and studies with missing observations.
Associate Professor of Medicine (Biomedical Informatics Research)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory develops computational methods to better understand how living systems respond to chemical agents. We use semantic technologies to integrate and analyze large biomedical data and enable knowledge-based discoveries in biology, biochemistry and medicine.
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Biomedical Informatics Research)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My lab focuses on biomedical data fusion: the development of machine learning methods for biomedical decision support using multi-scale biomedical data. We primarily use methods based on regularized linear regression to accomplish this. We primarily focus on applications in oncology and neuroscience.
Associate Professor (Research) of Surgery (General Surgery) and of Medicine (Biomedical Informatics Research Center)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My background and expertise is in the field of computational biology, with concentration in health services research. A key focus of my research is to apply novel methods and tools to large clinical datasets for hypothesis generation, comparative effectiveness research, and the evaluation of quality healthcare delivery. My research involves managing and manipulating big data, which range from administrative claims data to electronic health records, and applying novel biostatistical techniques to innovatively assess clinical and policy related research questions at the population level. This research enables us to create formal, statistically rigid, evaluations of healthcare data using unique combinations of large datasets.
Professor of Radiology (General Radiology) and of Medicine (Biomedical Informatics Research) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in improving the accuracy and reliability of imaging communication. My research focuses primarily on information produced by radiologists, rather than automated analysis of clinical images themselves. My laboratory is developing systems and standards to facilitate structured data capture during routine image interpretation. We also are developing natural language processing methods to extract concepts from the narrative text that remains a part of the radiology report.
Professor of Medicine (Medical Informatics)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My laboratory investigates the use of distributed, component-based software architectures to build intelligent computer systems. Emphasis is on knowledge modeling and knowledge reuse. Our goals are to enhance methodologies that faculitate building and maintaining electronic knowledge bases that can drive useful biomedical computer systems. Current work concentrates on automation of clinical practice guidelines and clinical-trial protocols, and surveillance for potential episodes of bioterrorism.
Professor of Radiology (General Radiology) and, by courtesy, of Medicine (Medical Informatics) and of Electrical Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research seeks to advance the clinical and basic sciences in radiology, while improving our understanding of biology and the manifestations of disease, by pioneering methods in the information sciences that integrate imaging, clinical and molecular data. A current focus is on content-based radiological image retrieval and integration of imaging features with clinical and molecular data for diagnostic, prognostic, and therapy planning decision support.
Clinical Associate Professor, Pediatrics - Critical Care
Current Research and Scholarly Interests In my administrative role, I oversee the development and maintenance of clinical decision support tools within the electronic medical record. These clinical decision support tools are designed to enhance patient safety, efficiency, and quality of care. My research focuses on rigorously evaluating--1) how these tools affect clinician knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors; and 2) how these tools affect clinical outcomes and efficiency of health care delivery.
