BioAlison Callahan is an Instructor and Clinical Data Scientist in the Center for Biomedical Informatics. In collaboration with Nigam Shah's group, her work involves research and development of informatics methods for the analysis of biomedical and clinical data to derive insights and inform medical decision making. Her current research focuses on using informatics to expand and improve the data available about pregnancy and birth, including developing an obstetric database from Stanford Health Care EHRs.
Alison completed her PhD in the Department of Biology at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. Her doctoral research focused on developing HyQue, a framework for representing and evaluating scientific hypotheses, and applying this framework to discover genes related to aging. She was also a developer for Bio2RDF, an open-source project to build and provide the largest network of Linked Data for the life sciences. Her postdoctoral work at Stanford applied methodologies developed during her PhD to study spinal cord injury in model organisms and humans in a collaboration with scientists at the University of Miami.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsInformatics solutions ares the only credible approach to systematically address challenges of escalating complexity in healthcare. Tapping into real-world clinical data streams like electronic medical records will reveal the community's latent knowledge in a reproducible form. Delivering this back as clinical decision support will uniquely close the loop on a continuously learning health system.
