Once a researcher comes face to face with an informatician, a revelation takes place. For Nicholas Tatonetti, PhD, Assistant Professor, Biomedical Informatics at the Columbia University Medical Center, meeting an informatician for the first time felt like coming home – leading him to a new community that allows this math fanatic to geek out and solve medicine’s biggest problems.
From birth months determining illnesses to improving adverse event reporting, Nicholas’ work identifies unsaid interactions in reporting a patient’s side effects, revealing more opportunities for medical experts to gain comprehensive knowledge of what their patients may be experiencing with treatments.
Why Informatics? So, we can ensure patients receive the safest and most effective care.
