Project description:

The German Heart Center Munich has assembled a unique biomedical big data resource of over 100,000 patients, treatment and follow up in the form of electronic health records, lab diagnostics, imaging and genomics data. In this project, we will develop an artificial intelligence (AI) approach to predict patients at risk of recurrent cardiovascular events after myocardial infarction. This approach will form the basis of a novel clinical decision support system.

The project is based on close collaboration with the Institute of Computational Biology (ICB) at the Helmholtz Zentrum München, one of the leaders in developing biomedical AI solutions. Providing a deep understanding of Machine Learning algorithms in the context of computational biology and development of novel methods tailored towards solving complex biological and medical questions. A special focus is the molecular characterization of metabolic and cardiovascular diseases.
Both institutes provide joint supervision – computational (Dr. Matthias Heinig) and clinical (Prof. Heribert Schunkert).
