Findings from an innovative new study led by researchers at Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine and published this week in Nature Microbiology reveal that the way in which human fungal pathogens form colonies can significantly impact their ability to cause disease.
A new study from The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, published this week in JAMA Network Open, finds that most U.S. physician practices and hospitals report screening patients for at least one social need, a trend that is expected to increase in the future, and that practices that care for disadvantaged patients report higher screening rates.
Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine has been awarded a 5-year, $12.5 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to establish a Center for Quantitative Biology that will bring together and enhance initiatives in computational biology, bioinformatics, and experimental genomics across Dartmouth.
Saeed Hassanpour, PhD, an assistant professor of biomedical data science and of epidemiology at Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine, and of computer science at Dartmouth College, has received the 2019 Agilent Early Career Professor Award.
New research from The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, published this week in JAMA Network Open, finds that Accountable Care Organization (ACO)-reported care management and coordination activities were not associated with improved outcomes or lower spending for patients with complex needs.
A new study by Dartmouth researchers, published this week in eLIFE, reveals that when threatened, female fruit flies switch to ethanol-rich food to protect their eggs from predatory wasps, and that this adaptation is passed on to their offspring, persisting for five generations.
Findings from a new study conducted by a team of researchers at Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine and published in the July issue of Health Affairs, shows that while the number and variety of contracts held by ACOs have increased dramatically in recent years, the proportion of those bearing downside risk has seen only modest growth.
Bruce Riddle, PhD, MA, an instructor in epidemiology at Geisel, has received the Constance L. Percy Award for Distinguished Service from the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR), the umbrella organization of central registries in the U.S. and Canada.
Findings from a Dartmouth study, led by Taressa Fraze, PhD, offer new details about how Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are using home visits to improve care management and identify patient needs while aiming to reduce costs. The study was part of a broader research effort at Dartmouth focused on how ACOs care for patients with complex clinical and social needs.
