We have developed model Health Informatics (HI) curricula for the education of three categories of professionals: Applied Health Informaticians, the professionals that deploy information technologies, Research and Development Health Informaticians those that develop new concepts, techniques, and solutions, and what we have called Clinician Health… (More)
Significant efforts to develop both laboratory and field-based detection assays for an array of potential biological threats started well before the anthrax attacks of 2001 and have continued with renewed urgency following. While numerous assays and methods have been explored that are suitable for laboratory utilization, detection in the field is often… (More)
Identification and characterization of structural fluctuations that occur under native conditions is crucial for understanding protein folding and function, but such fluctuations are often rare and transient, making them difficult to study. Native-state hydrogen exchange (NSHX) has been a powerful tool for identifying such rarely populated conformations,… (More)
An unexpected collaboration between a synthetic biology lab at UCSF and a Palo Alto-based design firm is stirring up the way that research is conceived and conducted, by integrating innovation and "design thinking" into the scientific method.
To harness the strength of data sets growing by leaps and bounds every day, cultural norms in biomedical research are under pressure to change with the times.
As research becomes increasingly interdisciplinary and the lines between academic and industrial pursuits blur, scientists on both sides of the fence are developing outsourcing models to build innovative collaborations and open funding opportunities.

A negative urine pregnancy test in the emergency department traditionally excludes the diagnosis of pregnancy. We report a rare case of ruptured ectopic pregnancy in a patient with a negative urine pregnancy test but with a serum beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (β-hCG) of 10 mIU/mL. The patient developed hemoperitoneum and required laparoscopy by… (More)
