Rare Metabolic Diseases

Project Summary

A team of students lead by Rachel Richesson (Duke University School of Nursing) will explore patterns of health care treatment and utilization for several rare metabolic disorders treated at Duke University Health System (DUHS).  Students will gain an understanding of medical data, the use of reference terminologies to generate new relationships and inferences, and various data analysis and visualization techniques to describe and compare the clinical profiles of patients with different conditions. Students will interact with faculty experts from multiple disciplines (statistics, network analysis, medicine, genetics, and population health) to demonstrate how data-driven clinical profiles can inform our understanding of patients’ health care experience and support clinical care and research.
