Introducing the new nSIDES.io

The Tatonetti Lab has just launched a new nSIDES.io site to serve as the home for our growing list of resources on drug safety. The new site will serve as the official resource launching platform for OnSIDES, OffSIDES, TwoSIDES, ManySIDES, and the newest member KidSIDES. Read more about these drug safety resources and how to […]

Payal featured by Computer Science Department

TLab member Payal Chandak was featured by the Department of Computer Science for her work on characterizing the differences in adverse drug effect reporting between men and women. Payal invented a method for data mining the FDA’s Adverse Event Reporting System to look for biases along reported sex that resulted in significantly different safety signals. […]

TLab dives into SARS-CoV-2 Research

Congratulations to Dr. Thangaraj!

Phyllis Thangaraj, an MD/PhD student in the lab, successfully defended her dissertation entitled “Electronic health record-derived phenotyping models to improve genomic research in stroke.” Her work explores the use of machine learning methods to transform noisy binary indicators of disease status common in electronic health records to quantitative descriptors. Dr. Thangaraj’s central hypothesis is that […]
