PVM Faculty Member is One of Winners Among Integrative Data Science Initiative Research Proposals
Following oral presentations on May 3, a panel of judges selected eight research proposals, including one led by a PVM faculty member, to be funded in response to Purdue’s Integrative Data Science Initiative request for proposals. For this first round, the request, released on March 15, resulted in 52 separate highly competitive proposals addressing data science applications in health care; defense; ethics, society and policy; and fundamentals, methods and algorithms. The submitting proposal teams included 10 of Purdue’s colleges/schools and involved 172 Purdue faculty from 48 departments.
Dr. Audrey Ruple, assistant professor of public health epidemiology in the Department of Comparative Pathobiology, is the PI for a winning research proposal entitled, “Using the One Health Approach for Combating Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR): Creating an integrated framework for the collection, analysis, and interpretation of data necessary to establish a comprehensive AMR surveillance system in Indiana.” Her research team includes PVM, Agriculture and Engineering faculty. The project combines one health, integrative data science, and anti-microbial resistance principles.
