Mayo researchers use AI to reveal causes of complex diseases

By Susan Murphy Susan Murphy (@susanmurphy)

Researchers within Mayo Clinic’s Center for Individualized Medicine have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) platform that can uncover causal drivers and relationships embedded within complex biomedical data. Nicholas Chia, Ph.D., John Kalantari, Ph.D., and Kia Khezeli, Ph.D., recently tested their machine-learning framework, called Causal Relation and Inference Search Platform (CRISP) on multiomic colorectal cancer samples […]

Mayo Clinic algorithm shows potential in individualizing treatment for depression

By Susan Murphy Susan Murphy (@susanmurphy)

Finding an effective antidepressant medication for people diagnosed with depression, also called major depressive disorder, is often a long and complex process of “try and try again” ― going from one prescription to the next until achieving a therapeutic response. This complex disease, which affects more than 16 million people in the U.S., can cause […]

Mayo Clinic, NASA team up to test AI algorithm on colorectal cancer

By Susan Murphy Susan Murphy (@susanmurphy)

Mayo is working with NASA to sequence the path of cancer — from what causes it to what drives it, and potentially how to prevent it. Mayo researchers and NASA Frontier Development Lab data scientists are embarking on a research sprint this month to optimize an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm for colorectal cancer and possibly […]

AI enhances MRI images to identify molecular markers of brain cancer

By Sharon Rosen Sharon Rosen (@sharonhrosen)

Five years ago Bradley Erickson, M.D., Ph.D. never would have imagined that an MRI would be able to identify the molecular characteristics of brain cancer. But because of the rapid advances in artificial intelligence (AI), that scenario isn’t science fiction. It’s an exciting medical reality for Dr. Erickson, a radiologist on Mayo Clinic’s campus in […]
