rachel-richesson-archiveSeveral DCRI and Duke researchers made presentations at this year’s American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) Joint Summits on Translational Science, held earlier this month in San Francisco.

The summits, which comprise a translational bioinformatics component and a clinical research informatics component, are presented by AMIA each year to highlight current research and topics of interest to each community. Duke’s Rachel Richesson, PhD, MPH (pictured), served as chair of the Scientific Program Committee for the clinical research informatics component.

“Use of RxNorm and NDF-RT to Normalize and Characterize Participant-reported Medications in an i2b2-based Research Repository,” a paper authored by Richesson; Colette Blach; Guilherme Del Fiol, MD, PhD; Chandel Dundee, RN; Julie Frund; Michelle M. Smerek; Anita Walden; and Jessica Tenenbaum, PhD; was selected as a finalist for the Outstanding CRI Paper Award.
