The Human Brain Project SP8: Medical Informatics Platform



you medical informatics is a fusion between medicine and computer science the medical informatics sub-project will generate methods to first understand diseases and find signatures of diseases but also to understand the data that lead us to information about these diseases so what we're going to do is to try and redefine disease to base it much more on what's going wrong in the biology of the brain than simply on people's accounts of their symptoms and have we put them together into what we call syndromes so that means thinking about how to bring the data together have federated how to integrate it and then how to analyze it in order to define our disease entities and it has to do with trying to find out what is what information there is out there in databases in all of Europe's tax-funded hospitals and all of Europe's takes from the research laboratories we need to advance many different aspects of data management this advancement means generating new tools generating new algorithms new methods to turn data into useful information medical informatics goal is to take medicine and computer science to the next era to the next step the results of this research will be available to the entire human brain project consortium future medicine is about trying to get a better handle on those diseases so that we can find better treatments you
