Health and Biomedical Big Data for Translational Research

Professor Jack Li of the College of Medical Science and Technology (CoMST) at Taipei Medical University is currently visiting the Translational Cancer Research Network (TCRN) to help shape a new translational Cancer Bioinformatics course which is currently being developed by TCRN and UNSW.. His seminar will examine the availability of tools and data sets that can facilitate this transformation and will present examples and evidence of how this transformation will change the way we look at biomedical research forever.

Quantitative Research Methods Seminar: Clinically driven meta-analysis simulations and their performance

Meta-analysis is a commonly used technique to formally combine results of multiple randomized trials, yet controversy regarding its use remains, often involving the role of heterogeneity, both clinical and statistical. We aim to comprehensively explore meta-analysis performance in a clinically driven simulated model and the impact on performance of common dimensions of clinical heterogeneity. We model varying size and number of RCTs using different means and distributions of background event risk and relative risk reduction.

AIHI Lunchtime Seminar Series: False as Water

Fluid resuscitation is the second most common intervention in the intensive care unit, following the administration of supplemental oxygen. Notwithstanding, the physiological principles, clinical indications and patient-centred outcomes for this ubiquitous therapy remain a matter of debate. Recent large randomized, controlled trials in Scandinavia and Australia/New Zealand have provided robust evidence to guide clinical practice.

AIHI Lunchtime Seminar Series: What is the best method of blood pressure measurement in routine clinical practice?

High blood pressure (hypertension) is an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease, a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The diagnosis and management of hypertension depends on accurate measurement of blood pressure in order to target antihypertensive treatment appropriately and avoid unnecessary healthcare costs. Traditionally, blood pressure measurement takes place in the physician’s clinic. However, this measurement frequently under/overestimates true blood pressure and may result in incorrect classification and hence subsequent management.
