Data Sciences

  • The professor of rheumatology and immunology created an early computer database to follow rheumatology patients. The knowledge he gained from it precipitated his “compression of morbidity” hypothesis.

  • Researchers to study long COVID

    Data suggest that between 10% and 30% of those who have had an acute SARS-CoV-2 infection will experience the persistent pattern of symptoms known as long COVID.

  • Identifying new types of cancer cells

    EcoTyper is an algorithm that can sort out cell “ecotypes” — distinct multicellular communities — that exist in many different kinds of cancer.

  • Data consult helps in diagnosis, treatment

    Stanford Medicine researchers created a new type of medical consult that harnesses millions of electronic health records to bring new insights to patient care.

  • Animal-welfare awareness may lower meat consumption

    Giving people information about animal welfare can motivate them to eat less meat, a meta-analysis of 100 studies has found.

  • Wearables predict blood test results

    Stanford researchers found that data from smartwatches can flag early signs of some health conditions and predict the results of simple blood tests.

  • Wide vaccine acceptance in California prisons

    Stanford researchers find that two-thirds of residents in the state’s prisons accepted a vaccine when offered, and many who initially said no later agreed to be vaccinated.

  • Software ‘reads’ imagined handwriting

    Artificial intelligence, interpreting data from a device placed at the brain’s surface, enables people who are paralyzed or have severely impaired limb movement to communicate by text.

  • Cancer diagnoses increase at 65, study finds

    Analyzing a national cancer database, researchers find a bump in diagnoses at 65, suggesting that many wait for Medicare to kick in before they seek care.

  • Smartwatch can detect early signs of illness

    Stanford Medicine scientists have devised a smartwatch-based “alarm system” that goes off when it detects signs of infection.

  • Study of COVID-19 saliva test

    An at-home COVID-19 test, designed by Stanford researchers to be easy to use and provide results within 30 minutes, will be the focus of a study funded by the Stanford Medicine Catalyst Program.

  • Modeling contact tracing

    Researchers have developed a mathematical model to examine the potential of contact tracing to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.
