Digital Health, 'Omics and Data Science

Newer technologies from the fields of 'omics, digital health and data science have made a major impact on the methods and scientific approach used by investigators in the UCSF School of Nursing. 'Omics science has the potential to improve understanding of underlying mechanisms of disease and provide better biomarkers of disease risk and responses to interventions. Digital health, including tools like sensors and apps, allows for collection of real-time behavioral and physiological data within an individuals’ environment. Data science allows integration and analysis of these and other (e.g., EHR) large datasets in order to provide comprehensive models of disease risk and responses to interventions.
