Research Title
Discovering pharmacovigilance using artificial intelligence on biomedical big data

No Monument Location

Dr. Zhang investigates how artificial intelligence can help discover novel pharmacovigilance knowledge from biomedical big data. He has created an innovative translational informatics framework, which enables the generation of hypotheses about clinical issues by mining the biomedical literature and by validating the findings in electronic health record data from large healthcare systems. This signal-generating system accelerates the rate of recognizing new patterns (e.g., drug-supplement interactions, pharmacogenomics-drug relationships) and consequences for health care.
