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., I. 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 […]

Regenerative eyedrops tap blood for tears

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Gregory Williams turned to regenerative medicine for healing after a one-two punch to his health. The 63-year-old Florida man survived leukemia only to develop ocular graft-versus-host disease, a potentially blinding complication of the bone marrow transplant that put his cancer in remission. Ocular graft-versus-host disease is a chronic debilitating condition with no cure that causes […]
