NEW RESEARCH PROJECT

AVERT: towards development of an autoimmunity relapse prediction tool using large parallel datasets and machine learning technology

This is a new research project being led by Prof Mark Little and Prof Alan Salama, both eminent consultants in the world of Vasculitis. The project is being funded by HRB and MRCG here in Ireland. It is a five year project which will use information gathered by a smartphone/tablet app to determine which factors trigger a flare. The information stored and entered into this app by the patient will include medication, health data (BP, Blood results etc), activity levels, exposure to environmental changes (pollution, viruses etc). Gathering this information will be three fold, it will provide evidence for the research, improve patient/physician interactions and act as a means of immediate feedback on what keeps us well. The app is in the design phase and we are looking for volunteers to help with this. If you are interested please contact the app designer directly at eamonn@medicaleguides.com.
