AMIA 2014 Joint Summits on Translational Science



Rachel Richesson, PhD, MPH, served as Chair of the Scientific Program Committee for Clinical Research Informatics (CRI) of the 2014 AMIA Joint Summits on Translational Science held April 7-11, 2014 in San Francisco. This is an annual event that includes both the CRI Summit and the Translational Bioinformatics (TBI) Summit.

A paper authored by Colette Blach; Guilherme Del Fiol, MD, PhD; Chandel Dundee, RN; Julie Frund; Rachel Richesson, PhD; Michelle M. Smerek; Anita Walden; and Jessica Tenenbaum, PhD titled “Use of RxNorm and NDF-RT to Normalize and Characterize Participant-reported Medications in an i2b2-based Research Repository” was selected as a finalist for
the Outstanding CRI Paper Award, sponsored by the The Ohio State University Department of Biomedical Informatics. Additional information is detailed here.
