Imre Solti has been awarded an i2b2 Collaborative Postdoctoral Fellowship in Natural Language Processing. i2b2 sponsors this collaborative postdoctoral fellowship in Natural Language Processing (NLP) at the Division of Biomedical and Health Informatics, University of Washington. The fellowship has two goals: 1) to advance the collaboration between i2b2 and the Clinical and Translational Science Award recipient University of Washington, and 2) to enhance the NLP capabilities of the i2b2 infrastructure for automated identification of cohorts of patients for clinical trial enrollment. We anticipate that the collaboration will lead to R01 grant application. Peter Tarczy-Hornoch will be PI on the subcontract funding this fellowship.
