Center for Big Data in Health Sciences (CBD-HS)

Mission

To develop and promote innovative data science technologies to interrogate Big Data to improve the health of the people of Texas, the nation and the world.

 

Goals

  • Build a national/international-level Big Data research program for biomedical and health sciences via developing/promoting use of state-of-the-art Big Data analytic approaches and technologies
  • Build a data-driven research platform to bridge the gap between the computational/quantitative scientists and biomedical/health investigators
  • Support development of data science education programs to train next generation of health data scientists
  • Engage and develop partnerships with industries to promote individual health and community well-being by improving diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases and injuries using Big Data

Big Data Projects: “Research Working Groups”

    • Goals:

      1. Develop scalable Big Data analytic pipelines to analyze a large number of time course gene expression data sets from the GEO data repository
      2. Develop a web-based collaboration platform to share the large number of analysis results with genetic and biomedical collaborators in order to extract scientific insights and disseminate the large number of findings from the scalable analytic pipelines via publications.

    • Meeting: Weekly 11:00AM-12:30PM every Thursday in UTHealth SPH RAS Room E811

    We expect the CBD-HS members with expertise in the following areas:

    • Statistical methodologies for Big Data analytics
    • Bioinformatics data analysis and modeling: Omics data analysis and integration
    • Biomathematical modeling and computational biology
    • Big Data analytics software development
    • Data mining and machine learning
    • Expertise and experience in novel data types: text documents, audio, video, EMR, EHR, mHealth, imaging data, EEG, sensor-based data, wearable device data, GPS data, location-based data, social media data, network data et.
    • High Performance Computing: parellel computing, cloud computing, high performance computing algorithms, numerical optimization algorithms
    • Any clinical, biomedical and health science investigators who are interested in using Big Data for their research and practice
    • Any others who intend to collaborate or work with the CBD-HS primary members

Contributions to UTHealth Community: Collaboration/Consulting Service and Support

Provide collaboration support and consulting services to biomedical and health science investigators:

  • Design research projects and tools/strategies for Big Data collection
  • Develop database or data warehouse for Big Data management
  • Big Data harmonization and integration
  • Big Data visualization
  • Big Data analytics
  • Big Data modeling and predictions

A Big Data research platform for Big Data identification, management, integration, visualization, analytics, modeling and prediction will be developed to support the Big Data research at UTHealth.

Industry Engagement:

We will actively develop collaborations and partnerships with related industries, including local companies, national and international corporations who may own Big Data and need analytic support. This will not only benefit our Center's faculty for research purpose, but also this is good for our students to get more opportunities for summer internships and jobs.

Contributions to Data Science Education Program:

Currently there is a big shortage in Data Scientists in many business sectors. In particular, the demand for data scients in health sciences is huge in academics, industry and government. Our Center will provide support and collaborate with the academic departments to develop data science education programs, including data science certificate, MS and PhD degrees in Biostatistics with the Data Science track. We will also organize and host summer schools workshops and conferences in Big Data. We will collaborate with other academic departments to apply for NIH T32 pre-doctoral and postdoctoral training grants in Data Science
