Distinguished computational scientist and informatics expert Alfredo Tirado-Ramos, PhD, has joined the Dartmouth community to lead biomedical and translational informatics programs for the Geisel School of Medicine and the Dartmouth-Hitchcock (D-H) health system. Tirado-Ramos’ multifaceted leadership responsibilities will include serving as SYNERGY’s Director of Biomedical Informatics, Director of the Biomedical Data Science Research Software Laboratory, Associate Professor in the Department of Biomedical Data Science, and Scientific Director of Biomedical Informatics for D-H.
“We are delighted to have Alfredo aboard—being able to secure someone of his experience and expertise is a major coup for Dartmouth,” says Alan I. Green, MD, Chair and Professor of Psychiatry, and Director of SYNERGY. “Informatics is a key part of modern clinical and translational research and an essential component of linking data from electronic health records with research questions. Alfredo’s impact will be dramatic in helping us use ‘big data’ in sophisticated ways to advance our efforts in research and patient care throughout our system and beyond.”
“We’re very pleased to have Alfredo here to fill this key position for our institution,” says Michael Whitfield, PhD, interim chair of the Department of Biomedical Data Science and professor of molecular and systems biology and biomedical science at Geisel.
D-H Chief Health Information Officer Peter Solberg, MD, says, “Alfredo has hit the ground running, helping us to start a strategic plan for deployment of tools that can allow collaborative sharing of data from multiple institutions’ health records. And he brings a great personal charm and energy to the crucial role of coordinating College and D-H efforts.”Read More
