Bringing expertise in data analysis and large scale computation, School of Medicine Research Computing is supporting clinical research at UVa. Several recent collaborations are listed below.
Heart Rate and Blood Pressure Analysis Pediatricians and neonatologists are interested in identifying normal ranges for vital signs of premature babies. Such metrics are critical to predictive monitoring of patients in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). SOMRC is working with physicians and clinical researchers to write code that manipulates, visualizes and analyzes the heart rate and blood pressure measurements from the available data.
