Dr. Maslove's research focuses on informatics, genomics, and the use of biomedical Big Data to address current challenges in Critical Care Medicine. His work involves capturing and analyzing massive volumes of detailed electronic data derived from patients in intensive care to understand more about the nature and progression of acute illnesses. Maslove hopes to identify the differences, rather than the similarities, between critically ill patients who may have been categorized as having the same condition. His long-term goal is a database of genomic, physiologic, and other ICU patient data that can be used by physicians and nurses at the bedside to make better treatment decisions in real time.
