RAPID - A Real Time Platform for Knowledge Management and Data Analytics
Mon 4/15/2019 12:00PM - 1:00PM
1155 Public Health, Foster Conf. Rm.(former 1149)

The Real-Time Application for Portable Interactive Devices (RAPID) is an Amazon cloud-based system designed which functions as a Saas and Paas system to receive electronic information, analyze it and respond to the sender of the information within 24 hours.  The modular system accepts a variety of data types which may be evaluated by internal federal data analysts in real-time.  The bidirectional design permits the transmission of timely emergency information to health care providers or other individuals during public health emergencies.

CDER scientists chose to develop RAPID, a bidirectional communications and analytics systems platform, to solve many problems noted above during a national emergency and other FDA regulatory requirements.   The key IoT elements in the RAPID instance are to be a bidirectional data communication system, have a cloud base system which is flexible, scalable and provides a data lake of information with analytic tools to evaluate real time and streaming information and provide real time situational awareness to leadership enabling collaborative regulatory decision making and communication of key health data back to individuals in the field.

In this hands-on workshop, learn to use FRED (Framework for Reconstructing Epidemiological Dynamics), a flexible, agent-based modeling platform that can be used to model diverse situations, including infectious diseases, chronic conditions, demographic changes at the population level, and the effects of human behavior. Workshop participants will become familiar with the FRED platform, learn the basics of incorporating and simulating agent behavior in simulation models, and create and run their own behavioral models using FRED Web, an online interface in which FRED models can be designed, run, and analyzed.

FRED can be used to predict outcomes of an epidemic, such as epidemic curves and disease incidence, and is a tool for evaluating interventions, such as school closure, social distancing and changes in vaccination behavior.  Using census-based statistically representative synthetic populations, FRED captures the demographic and geographically heterogeneous characteristics of actual populations, including realistic neighborhood, household, school and workplace social networks.

PHDL post-doctoral researcher/programmer David Sinclair will present the first talk on the Health Sciences Library System's new "Spotlight Series: Software Developed @ Pitt." Sessions begin with a 30-minute presentation of tool development and use cases, followed by instruction on software access/installation, discussion of parameters, and hands-on practice.

Using statistically representative synthetic populations, FRED (A Framework for Reconstructing Epidemiological Dynamics) is a flexible system that can be used to model diverse situations, including infectious diseases, chronic conditions, demographic changes at the population level, and the effects of human behavior. FRED can be used to predict outcomes of an epidemic, such as epidemic curves and disease incidence, as well as for evaluating interventions, such as school closure, social distancing, and changes in vaccination behavior.

Renjian's thesis, Neuroprotective microRNAs combat HIV associated neurocognitive disorder (HAND) pathogenesis, states that nearly more than half of individuals living with HIV-1 infection present with some degree of neuronal impairment. Since, currently, no treatment is available to prevent or treat HAND, devising a method to manage HAND can help to improve the quality of life in HIV-1 positive population.
