Data Science Project Tracks Spread of Superbugs
Audrey Ruple, an assistant professor of veterinary medicine, is developing a surveillance system using data science to monitor the spread of resistance and ultimately help prevent outbreaks of superbugs. Her work is being funded in part through Purdue’s Integrative Data Science Initiative.
“In 2017, there was a woman who came back to the United States after traveling in India who ended up dying of a bacterial infection that was completely insusceptible to any of our current antibiotics,” says Ruple, who is also a member of the Purdue Center for Cancer Research and the Purdue Institute of Inflammation, Immunology and Infectious Disease in Purdue’s Discovery Park.
