Analytics Thought Leader Lecture - Villanova University

Sep 18th 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Villanova University - 800 Lancaster Ave, Bartley Hall, Room 1011, Villanova, PA 19085


Katrina Adams, Predictive Analytics Practice lead at LPA Software Solutions will provide a review of a joint study with the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) to develop quantitative disease progression models for Parkinson’s disease using clinical data at the Medical Center. 

There are no proven therapies that can delay, stop or reverse the clinical or neuropathological progression of Parkinson’s disease. This is primarily because Parkinson’s disease is slow and heterogeneous in symptomatic progression. Dr. Adams will describe the steps taken while building  a model in an attempt to quantify and predict Parkinson’s disease progression, identifying  patient attributes which may explain the heterogeneity of disease progression as measured by the Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS).
