– Prof. Robert Aseltine (UCHC), Prof. Kun Chen (UConn) and Fei Wang (Cornell) have been awarded an NIH R01 grant.

Kun Chen, Robert Aseltine from UCHC, Fei Wang from Cornell Medicine have just been awarded an NIH grant on developing suicide risk algorithms for diverse clinical settings using data fusion (R01-MH124740). Project title: Developing Suicide Risk Algorithms for Diverse Clinical Settings using Data Fusion. This is a four-year multi-PI grant from 09/2020 to 06/2024. We propose to use data from a large multi-state health information exchange, integrated with hospital data from the State of Connecticut, to develop and test suicide risk algorithms using principles associated with statistical data fusion and transfer learning. We will also team up with local hospitals to develop clinical supporting tools.
