About the Ross Lab
Improving healthcare for individuals with chronic cardiovascular and metabolic diseases is multi-factorial. While decades of research have improved our understanding of disease development and outcomes, relatively low adherence to guideline-recommended care, along with difficulty in enacting behavior change for patients and providers, stymies further advances in health. The Ross Lab has a unique focus and perspective on what research endeavors may help address healthcare’s current deficiencies. We aim to utilize big data from multiple sources (electronic health records, biobanks and sensors) to develop systems that can detect cardiovascular and metabolic diseases early and prevent more serious adverse outcomes.
Scope is an award-winning blog founded in 2009 and produced by the Stanford University School of Medicine.
Our lab aims to improve the timely diagnosis, treatment and outcomes of those with cardiovascular and metabolic diseases by employing innovative technology and developing new clinical care paradigms.
