Human Health Is Not One Size Fits All

Princeton Precision Health is a cross-cutting initiative that uses data science to transform human health at all levels: from molecular to social to environmental, with the goal of enacting smart policy and evidence-based clinical practice. We are an interdisciplinary team of researchers from a wide variety of fields, including computer science, psychology, public policy, and clinical practice, collaborating to solve complex problems and reduce bias in human health, policy and medicine.

Princeton Precision Health: Using machine learning and data to improve health

highlight image

Princeton Precision Health’s goal is to take a comprehensive, data-driven approach to this type of health care challenge. Currently, researchers’ use of data is limited to the approaches specific to their discipline. Social scientists rarely include comprehensive genetic information in their work, and computational biologists rarely use social science data. Instead of working in silos, the initiative aims to bring experts from many fields together to collaborate on interdisciplinary data sets created with cutting-edge tools. Importantly, Troyanskaya said, ethical frameworks and behavioral modeling are integral to Princeton Precision Health’s approach to achieve effective and unbiased clinical outcomes and health policies.

Biomedical Science Advances

The data-driven methods that we develop are applied to the most pressing biomedical challenges, questions and technology. Our current emphases include maternal & fetal health, chronic kidney disease & diabetes, infectious, inflammatory & autoimmune diseases, neurodevelopment & mental health. We also welcome the opportunity to collaborate in other areas of impact.

Clinical and Policy Impact

We apply the biomedical advances that our machine learning methods yield to develop strategies and drive policy for effective and equitable healthcare. At Princeton Prevision Health, data and machine learning scientists, biomedical researchers, psychologists, economists, social scientists, clinicians and policy experts, collaborate to produce equitable, effective, intelligent and precisely-targeted healthcare.

Bias Reduction and Equity

Princeton Precision Health’s novel computational approach reveals patterns and insights not apparent with traditional research methods. This allows us to reduce human bias and shift paradigms. By challenging bias-based assumptions with data-driven, computationally-derived results, we aim to influence smart health policy and improve access to care across communities.

Data Science and Machine Learning

We develop novel, computational, deep learning techniques specific to health-related challenges, which enable us to mine, analyze, and model data across currently siloed fields. Our methods utilize genomic, molecular, clinical, and socio-economic data as the ultimate integrator essential for providing effective, equitable health policy solutions.
