Season 1 Wrap-up
The Data Pulse
by Anika Gupta
2y ago
Thank you for joining for Season 1 of the Data Pulse podcast. I hope you found the conversations over the past 6 months to be both enlightening and enjoyable. With chaos dominating the world this year, the podcast for me has been a grounding force, tapping into the power that lies in using data science to effectively tackle some of the grandest challenges in biomedicine. I have thoroughly enjoyed diving into the minds of peers and mentors who I deeply admire, building a resource for a shared vocabulary—through both the conversations and the podcast glossary, and growing a community of folks pa ..read more

Diagnosing the undiagnosed and combining international health records with Isaac Kohane
The Data Pulse
by Anika Gupta
2y ago
Rare diseases present a unique challenge in both diagnosis and treatment, given the small number of cases, often leaving them undiagnosed. I talk with Professor Isaac Kohane of Harvard Medical School about the Undiagnosed Diseases Network's efforts to catalogue and diagnose rare diseases, focusing on the role that data science--specifically, merging genotype and phenotype information, can play in bringing about hope to the families of affected individuals. We also discuss efforts to aggregate EHR data from hospitals across the world in order to better predict COVID-related symptoms and outcome ..read more
