Translating from Chemistry to Clinic with Deep Learning
NLM Informatics and Data Science Lecture Series Many medicines become toxic only after bioactivation by metabolizing enzymes. Often, metabolic enzymes transformed them into chemically reactive species, which subsequently conjugate to proteins and cause adverse events. For example, carbamazepine is epoxidized by P450 enzymes in the liver, but then conjugates to proteins, causing Stevens Johnson Syndrome in some patients. The most difficult to predict drug reactions, idiosyncratic adverse drug reactions, often depend on bioactivation. Our group has been using deep learning to model the metabolism of diverse chemicals, and th...

James H. Cassedy Memorial Lecture in the History of Medicine - Making the Case for History in Medical Education
10th Annual James H. Cassedy Memorial Lecture in the History of Medicine Historians of medicine have struggled for centuries to make the case for history in medical education. They have developed many arguments about the value of historical perspective, but their efforts have faced persistent obstacles, from limited resources to curricular time constraints and skepticism about whether history actually is essential for physicians. Recent proposals have suggested that history should ally itself with the other medical humanities and make the case that together they can foster medical professionalism. We articulate a different...

Transforming Electronic Health Records from Annoyances to Assistants: A Research Agenda for the Next Decade
Clinical informatics research, and before that, medical informatics research, has made great strides in developing tools to help clinicians improve clinical decision-making and patient care. Yet, electronic health records (EHR) systems today show little aptitude for even simple tasks, like retrieving relevant patient information, while suppressing that which is irrelevant. When bringing artificial intelligence to bear, the best EHRs seem to do is to overwhelm us with alerts that a clinician must override to take action. When the “ learning health system ” attempts to use data from these systems, it must rely on...

Learning to distinguish the good from the bad: Neural systems underlying reinforcement learning
Director's Seminar Series The section on Learning and Decision making studies the neural circuitry and computational mechanisms that underlie reinforcement learning. Reinforcement learning (RL) is the behavioral process of learning what we like and do not like from experience. While some preferences are innate, many are learned over time. There are few areas in systems neuroscience where a theory has linked a neural mechanism to behavior as successfully as RL. The standard model of RL, developed in the mid-1990s, assumes that dopamine neurons code reward prediction errors (RPEs). RPEs are the difference between the reward ...
