The van der Schaar Lab’s eleventh Revolutionizing Healthcare engagement session for clinicians took place virtually on October 26, 2021.
In this session, Mihaela van der Schaar and a panel of 3 international clinicians expanded on the agenda outlined in the previous session: the importance of bridging the gap between ideas and implementation in machine learning for healthcare.
Our panel for this session consisted of:
- George Mells, MD PhD (MRC Clinical Academic Research Partner, Academic Department of Medical Genetics, University of Cambridge)
- Pierre Marquet, MD PhD (Head of Pharmacology-toxicology Department at Limoges University Hospital Team lead, Pharmacology & Transplantation, University of Limoges and Inserm)
- Vincent Gnanapragasam, MD PhD (Professor of urology, University of Cambridge; Honorary consultant, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust)
In the first part of the session, Mihaela and the clinicians showed how machine learning can assist dynamic time-to-event analysis and temporal phenotyping, using a working demonstrator to show real-world case studies from prostate cancer. The latter part of the session featured a clinician roundtable, during which the panelists discussed different approaches to ensuring that clinicians can make full use of machine learning models.
