Research: Intergrative Personalized Omics Profiling Next Steps: Detection and Classification of Deviations from Wellness
Institution: Michigan State University, East Lansing, Mich.
Project dates: Jan. 1, 2019 – Dec. 31, 2020
Grant Mechanism: Single PI grant
Study type: Ground study
NASA Risk Addressed: Medical
Project: Precision medicine uses state-of-the-art technologies to detect changes in an individual’s health parameters that can be used to diagnose, treat, and even prevent disease. Dr. Mias proposes developing new computational and statistical methods to monitor, analyze, and annotate individual health information (including molecular and physiological measurements) and detect changes that could reflect or predict disease. Personalized monitoring of astronauts is already being performed, and the proposed analytical methods could improve NASA’s ability for timely early detection of diseases, and potentially adverse health events, during deep space missions.
