Sleep and Circadian Informatics Data Harmonization

Dr. Diego Mazzotti, guest

Today’s episode deviates from the traditional episode approach. Instead of focusing on a specific, scientific investigation or multiple investigations pertaining to a singular topic, our guest, Dr. Diego Mazzotti, is going to review a white paper from a recently performed workshop between experts in translational informatics and sleep research. This workshop was purposed to discuss opportunities and challenges in defining strategies for data harmonization, with an ultimate goal of fueling discussion and fostering innovative approaches for data integration and development of informatics infrastructure supporting multi-site collaboration among sleep researchers. Dr. Diego Mazzotti is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Medical Informatics, Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Kansas Medical Center. Dr. Mazzotti received his Ph.D. in Psychobiology at the Federal University of São Paulo, Brazil and a Certificate in Biomedical Informatics from the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine.
