  • Electronic Medical Records now act as main repositories for patient data. As we con- tinue to explore the intricate relationship between phenotype and genotype, these records become a vital source for monitoring patients’ progression of disease. The pre- sence of a given variation, as it relates to the appearance or absence of disease over time, can be mapped as encounters are recorded by clinicians. Every result, encounter, event, or diagnosis is recorded as a data item and includes a date.

  • EDRN is at the forefront of technology-driven research on the use of biomarkers for the early detection of cancer. By identifying and validat- ing biomarkers, such as novel proteins or changes in gene expression, it is possible to measure an individual’s disease risk, progression of disease, or response to therapy. Ultimately, EDRN research will aid in prevention and in early therapeutic intervention, based on early detection of disease.

  • Fall is rodent time. This means it’s also time to step up your rodent monitoring and control efforts.
