Using predictive computer modeling to look for ways to stop potentially deadly infection

Via CBS19 NEWS | January 12, 2022

Researchers are using an advanced computer modeling system to understand how a potentially deadly infection can cause problems for hospitalized patients.

The University of Virginia researchers are looking at C. difficile by using a form of predictive computer modeling called GENREs.

According to a release, this could help speed the development of new treatments for C. difficile infections, which affect about half a million Americans every year.

“This computer model has the potential to significantly advance our understanding of this important human pathogen,” said researcher Jason Papin, PhD, of UVA’s School of Medicine and School of Engineering… Continue reading.

UVA Creates a Simple Way to Solve the Complex Mysteries of the Microbiome

Via University of Virginia | October 25, 2018

This much is clear: The tiny bacteria that live on and inside us are tremendously important for our health and well-being, affecting everything from our mood to the risk of autism.

But understanding how those multitudes of microbes interact – and how they influence human health – is a gargantuan task, akin to counting the grains of sand on a beach.

Researchers at the University of Virginia and their collaborators, however, have devised a way to understand not just what is happening, but why. By combining cutting-edge computer modeling with old-fashioned laboratory legwork, they have developed a crystal ball to predict how microorganisms will interact and the ripple effects those interactions will have… Continue reading.
