Clinical Research Scholar Receives NIH KO8 Award

Meredith Adams, MD, MS, assistant professor of anesthesiology and CTSI Clinical Research Scholar, has been awarded a four-year, $737,492 Mentored Clinical Scientist Research Development Award (K08) from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. The goal of the award, titled, “Identifying opioid response phenotypes in low back pain electronic health data,” is to accelerate pain medicine research by translating clinical experiences into discrete and analyzable data, specifically, examining opioid response patterns for patients with low back pain in the electronic health record.

This project will adapt and apply natural language processing, data standardization, mining, and analysis tools to specifically model opioid response phenotypes of patients with lower back pain to characterize pain intensity, functional status and pain interference with activity.
