Transdisciplinary Interfaces and Innovation in the Life Sciences

Series:

Edited By Eunsook Hyun, Rainer Paslack and Hilmar Stolte

Life science comprises any of the branches of natural science dealing with the structure and behavior of living organisms and their relationships to one another and the environment. By presenting the proceedings of three transdisciplinary transatlantic workshops, this book deals with the interface among the ever expanding fields of molecular biology, nano-technology and synthetic biology as well as the subsequent ethical issues and the need for regulations. In this context the book emphasizes the role of regulations and ethical practices in clinical research, and points out the different approaches used in Europe and the USA. Clinical research was discussed from the perspective that medicine is and should always be a socially responsive human engagement advancing the condition of the living.

Data Mining of Medical Data: Opportunities and Challenges in Mining Association Rules

Dan A. Simovici

The beginning clinical clerk, the house officer and the practicing physician are all confronted with conditions that are frustrating in every phase of medical action. […] To deal effectively with these frustrations it will be necessary to develop a more organized approach to the medical record, a more rational acceptance and use of the paramedical personnel and a more positive attitude about the computer in medicine.

(L. L. Weed: Medical records that guide and teach, New England Journal of Medicine, 1968)
