UofT DNA researcher seeks advanced skills in time series prediction models

Researcher: Karim Mekhail seeks skills from another member
Institution: University of Toronto
Project aims: DNA mobility can contribute to genome stability. Although initially believed to be random, this mobility can exhibit non-random motions consistent with gaining access to repair-conducive factors. The current goal is to predict the motion of DNA and the outcome of repair on a single-cell level.
Desired skills in collaborators: Advanced knowledge of time series prediction models.

Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre researcher seeks data analysts for neuroimaging project

Contact: Dr. Fa-Hsuan Lin
Organization: Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre
Funding available: NSERC, MITACS
Project title and aims: Encoding and decoding the human brains under complex naturalistic stimuli
We are interested in measuring neuronal responses under complex and naturalistic stimuli, such as movie clips and musical pieces. The goals include the modeling of brain responses with sensory inputs (brain coding) and estimating the behavioural responses and sensory inputs based on brain activity (brain decoding). We hypothesize that relationships between brain activity, sensory input, and behavioural responses implicate the mental states, which are different between age groups, lifestyles, and disorders. We aim at classifying and predicting their subjective feelings, behaviours, and treatment responses based on neuroimaging measurements.
Research team currently has these skills: Our lab is specialized in neuroimaging data acquisition and analysis. The modality we used includes magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and electroencephalography (EEG). We are specialized in recording MRI and EEG with high spatiotemporal resolution and sensitivity on healthy adults, schizophrenic patients, and teenagers suffering from attention deficit disorders.
Desired skills in potential collaborators: We are enthusiastic in collaborating with experts in data analysis. We are interested in learning data modeling methods capable of generating robust results with our sample size (tens to hundreds of participants) and analytic strategies that support adaptive models with evolving data samples.
Other project collaborators: We are collaborating with international industrial partners and major medical imaging vendors to provide infrastructure (AI computations) and technical development (parts and information for imaging hardware) supports.

Automated medical billing startup seeks Natural Language Processing expertise

Contact: Adam Kepecs (Tel: 647-812-6678)
Organization: IntelAGENT
Project aims: This project aims to use Machine Learning to parse a clinician's unstructured free-text patient encounter note in their Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system to identify billable OHIP services. This will alleviate administrative overhead and help physicians spend more time in clinical practice.
Desired skills: Expertise in Natural Language Processing models for unstructured clinical notes.
Other collaborators in this project: Prof. Frank Rudzicz

UofT researcher seeks AI collaborators for EHR project

Researcher: Yalini Senathirajah
Institution: University of Toronto
Project description: Interested in collaborations with those with a mature AI recommendation algorithm that could be integrated into the EHR (our research is on user-controlled platforms for EHR redesign)
Project aims: Composable approaches to EHR design may have benefits for human-computer interaction, cognitive support, efficiency, workflow, and other benefits. It also may make it easier to incorporate AI-based recommendations at the point-of-care. We are interested in possibly piloting this approach with those with appropriate tested algorithms seeking to incorporate them into the EHR.
Desired skills in collaborators: Those who have developed AI-based algorithms aimed at clinical care, at an appropriate stage of development/testing.

University Health Network researcher seeks member with ML/NLP expertise

Researcher: Arun Ghoshal
Institution: University Health Network (UHN)
Project title: AI-related projects in medicine
Project description: • Precision Medicine: ML algorithms for personalized treatment strategies by analyzing genomic data, clinical records, and treatment outcomes. NLP for extraction of relevant information from medical literature and clinical notes, enabling the identification of potential therapeutic targets and the prediction of treatment responses.

• Clinical Decision Support: ML models trained on comprehensive datasets to aid in clinical decision-making, offering insights and recommendations based on patient characteristics, treatment history, and real-time data. NLP techniques can be applied to extract information from clinical guidelines and research papers, facilitating the integration of evidence-based medicine into decision-support systems.

• Patient Support and Education

• Data Integration and Analysis

Desired skills in collaborators: ML/NLP

Notes: Please email if interested and I am happy to discuss.
