Michigan Medicine improves the health of patients, populations and communities through excellence in education, patient care, community service, research and technology development, and through leadership activities in Michigan, nationally and internationally. Our mission is guided by our Strategic Principles and has three critical components; patient care, education and research that together enhance our contribution to society.

NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available at University of Michigan Schools of Medicine and Public Health. This position involves developing and applying statistical and computational methods for assessing outcomes and digital health data related to hematopoietic cell transplantation. Hematopoietic cell transplantation is an important therapeutic option for a number of malignant and non-malignant conditions. However, both the patient and his/her caregiver (e.g., spouse, sibling, parent, child, grandparent) experience significant complications after the transplant is completed. Although we have an in-depth understanding of one of the major complications of hematopoietic cell transplantation, referred to as graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), we are often unable to accurately predict an individual patient's risk for GVHD. Furthermore, very little is currently known how patient outcomes are associated with caregiver characteristics and outcomes.

Our research group, comprised of physicians, nurses, and statisticians, is focused on better understanding the biological, social, physiological, and mental contributors of transplant outcomes in both patients and their caregivers. Projects will include the application of machine learning methods to longitudinal continuous physiological data (e.g., sleep, steps, heart rate) obtained from wearable sensors in both patients and caregivers. The project will also require application of traditional statistical methods (e.g., descriptive statistics, regression, competing risks) that inform health care/decisions.
