Proteomics: Improving Cardiovascular Risk Prediction and Making Drug Development Safer for Patients Peter Ganz, MD

Chief of Cardiology, ZSFG

Maurice Eliaser Distinguished Professor of Medicine, UCSF

http://tiny.ucsf.edu/MGR18stream

*To gain an understanding of the human proteome and its powerful relationship to diseases.

*To learn how proteomics and precision medicine can make drug development safer for patients.

Dr. Ganz is the Chief of Cardiology and the Co-Director of the Center of Excellence in Vascular Research at the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. Dr. Ganz has been a pioneer in translational cardiovascular research. His laboratory first published on vascular endothelial dysfunction in atherosclerosis in humans (N Engl J Med 1986; 315:1046-1051). He has been a leader in the field of human endothelial biology ever since. Currently, Dr. Ganz is making important discoveries in another field - the proteomics of cardiovascular diseases - using modified aptamers as binding reagents to quantify up to 5,000 proteins in blood (JAMA 2016;315:2532-2541) and in other matrixes. Dr. Ganz has authored nearly 250 peer-reviewed articles, many widely cited. Numerous trainees who worked in Dr. Ganz’s laboratory have gone onto key leadership positions in academic medicine nationally and internationally.

Dr. Ganz received his M.D. from Harvard Medical School, completed his residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital and cardiovascular fellowship at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He spent over 20 years directing cardiovascular research in the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratories at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, prior to arriving to the University of California, San Francisco in 2008.

Dinner and Lecture: Becoming Aggrieved: Care in Black Chicago

Centering on a low-income, African American community in Chicago, this lecture examines the coping mechanisms residents develop after one of their neighbors, Mrs. Lana, suffers what her doctors view as a psychotic break. The lecture argues that the story of Mrs. Lana’s “madness” is productive because it gives us valuable insight into the ways in which blacks, especially those living in low-income communities that face a dearth of institutional resources, invert popular expectations of mourning, thereby developing a concept of “becoming aggrieved” that does not merely lament death, but also affirms life.rn rnBIO: Laurence Ralph is Professor of Anthropology and African and African American Studies at Harvard University. He earned both a PhD and also a Master of Arts degree in Anthropology from the University of Chicago, and a Bachelor of Science degree from Georgia Institute of Technology where he majored in History, Technology and Society. He has a diverse set of research interests including: urban anthropology, medical anthropology, the study of gangs, disability, masculinity, race, and popular culture.rn Toland Hall 533 Parnassus Avenue, U-142 San Francisco, CA 94143 + Add to calendar

He is past president of the Society of Hospital Medicine and past chair of the American Board of Internal Medicine.

In the safety and quality arenas, he edits the U.S. government’s leading website on patient safety and has written two books on the subject, including Internal Bleeding and Understanding Patient Safety, the world’s best-selling safety primer. In 2004, he received the John M. Eisenberg Award, the nation’s top honor in patient safety. For each of the past ten years, Modern Healthcare magazine has ranked him one of the most influential physician-executives in the U.S.; he was #1 on the list in 2015. His 2015 book, The Digital Doctor: Hope, Hype and Harm at the Dawn of Medicine’s Computer Age, was a New York Times science bestseller. He recently chaired a blue ribbon commission advising England’s National Health Service on its digital strategy.

Use of Natural Language Processing for Research R. Adams Dudley, MD, MBA

Director, UCSF Center for Healthcare Value

Associate Director, UCSF Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies

http://tiny.ucsf.edu/MGR18stream

• To better understand how “natural language processing” is done

• To recognize some alternative approaches to natural language processing (bag of words, topic modeling, concept mapping) and the advantages and disadvantages of each

R. Adams Dudley, MD, MBA, (@RAdamsDudleyMD) is a Professor of Medicine and Health Policy at UCSF and Director of UCSF’s Center for Healthcare Value. He has spent decades helping consumers, employers, providers, insurers, and government develop strategies to improve the quality of and lower the cost of health care. For example, he currently runs a project with Consumer Reports to share with the public information about the cost and quality of care for specific conditions (for example, knee surgery). With the advent of electronic medical records, his work on measuring outcomes and health care value has evolved into extensive use of informatics. In 2005, he received the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Investigator Award in Health Policy and in 2013 he received UCSF's Distinction in Mentoring Award. He has been elected to the American Society for Clinical Investigation and the Association of American Physicians.
