Study finds the risks of sharing health care data are low

Greater availability of de-identified patient health data would enable better treatments and diagnostics, researchers say, including at IMES, say. In recent years, scientists have made great strides in their ability to develop artificial intelligence algorithms that can analyze patient data and come up with new ways to diagnose disease or…

Analyzing the potential of AlphaFold in drug discovery

Study, by MIT researchers, including at IMES, finds computer models that predict molecular interactions need improvement before they can help identify drug mechanisms of action. Over the past few decades, very few new antibiotics have been developed, largely because current methods for screening potential drugs are prohibitively expensive and time-consuming….
