The Translational Research Investigating Biomarker Endpoints (TRIBE) consortium aims to improve the outcomes and safety of cardiac surgery.
The shortage of kidneys for transplantation is a major dilemma, which has driven efforts to expand the organ supply by using kidneys from deceased donors with risk factors for allograft dysfunction, such as older age and acute kidney injury.
Type 2 diabetes is a major public health problem worldwide. Progressive chronic kidney disease (CKD) in type 2 diabetes is associated with significant morbidity and mortality.

The ASsessment, Serial Evaluation, and Subsequent Sequelae in Acute Kidney Injury (ASSESS-AKI) Network
The ASsessment, Serial Evaluation, and Subsequent Sequelae in Acute Kidney Injury (ASSESS-AKI) Network is an epidemiological study of long term outcomes following episodes of AKI.
Progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in children leads to end stage renal disease (ESRD), which is associated with mortality rates 30-150 times higher than the general pediatric population.
The PRESERVE trial (Prevention of Serious Adverse Events Following Angiography) is a multicenter VA Healthcare System study that is helmed by Steven Weisbord, MD, MSc and Paul Palevsky, MD, of the Pittsburgh VA Healthcare System.
With the proliferation of the electronic health record, automated "alerts" have proliferated.
Arthur Lee Samuel, an expert in the field of computer gaming and artificial intelligence, is credited as defining machine-learning as a "field of study that gives computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed."
