IU announced that the Precision Health Initiative, a research endeavor focused on patient-centered precision medicine therapies and led by IU School of Medicine faculty, will receive the first funding under the university’s new $300 million Grand Challenges Program.

The Precision Health Initiative will develop IU’s expertise in individualized precision medicine with team members working closely with several prominent business and community partners, including Eli Lilly and Company, Roche Diagnostics, Cook Regentec, Deloitte, Regenstrief Institute, and Indiana University Health.

IU President Michael A. McRobbie said the Precision Health Initiative is a visionary proposal that fully realizes the vision of IU’s Bicentennial Strategic Plan to improve the education, health, economy, and quality of life of the people of Indiana. Led by IU Associate Vice President for Clinical Affairs and IU School of Medicine Executive Associate Dean for Research Affairs Anantha Shekhar, the Precision Health Initiative will seek to cure at least one cancer and one childhood disease, as well as find ways to prevent one chronic illness and one neurodegenerative disease.

“Precision health and person-centered approaches to patient care will be the next paradigm shift for health care delivery, and likely the dominant new forces in training the next generation of graduates from health sciences schools,” Shekhar said. “The goal of precision medicine is to get the right prevention or treatment to the right patient at the right time, and this initiative will enable us to do that for Hoosiers across the state.”

The National Science Foundation has awarded $200,022 to a research team led by Likun Zhu, an associate professor of mechanical engineering with the School of Engineering and Technology, to overcome problems with one approach to increasing the capacity of lithium ion batteries.

Increasing the capacity of rechargeable lithium ion batteries is important because they help enable sustainable energy systems by storing electricity generated by intermittent renewable resources such as wind and solar energy, Zhu said. They also power zero-emission electric vehicles charged by electricity from renewable resources.

Yongzhu Fu, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering with the School of Engineering and Technology, is co-principal investigator.

According to Zhu, one approach to significantly improving capacity is to replace conventional graphite anodes with alloy-type anode materials that include the elements silicon, germanium and tin.

But the problem has been that these alloy materials swell up after charging and shrink down after discharging, which leads to fracturing of micrometer-sized particles and promotes mechanical failure.

This research will address this issue by adding the element selenium to alloy-type anodes, such as germanium and tin, made from micrometer-sized particles.

The resulting selenium-doped microparticles may be able to withstand the massive swelling/shrinking of the anode, Zhu said. But the fundamental mechanisms are still unclear.

"Advanced imaging and computational studies will gain a fundamental scientific understanding of these selenium-doped alloy materials, with the long-term goal of developing commercially affordable, high-performance anode materials for better batteries," Zhu said.

The research will be a collaborative effort between researchers at three universities: IUPUI, Mississippi State University and the University of Texas at Austin.

IU study finds testicular cancer survivors may have hearing loss after cisplatin therapy

Lois B. Travis, M.D., Sc.D.

Many testicular cancer survivors experience hearing loss after cisplatin-based chemotherapy, according to researchers at Indiana University.

The researchers, led by Lois B. Travis, M.D., Sc.D., the Lawrence D. Einhorn Professor of Cancer Research at the IU School of Medicine and a researcher at the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center, studied for the first time the cumulative effects of cisplatin-based chemotherapy on hearing levels in testicular cancer survivors through comprehensive audiometry measurements. They found that increasing doses of cisplatin were associated with increased hearing loss at most of the tested frequencies, involving 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 kHz.

The research was published online June 27 in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.

"In addition to hearing loss, about 40 percent of patients also experienced tinnitus (ringing-in-the-ears), which was significantly correlated with reduced hearing," Dr. Travis, also director of the cancer center's Survivorship Research Program, said.

Although this study was conducted in patients with testicular cancer, the authors point out that the general conclusions are likely applicable to patients with other types of adult-onset cancers that are commonly treated with cisplatin. They indicate that it will be important to follow patients given cisplatin-based chemotherapy long-term to better understand the extent to which the natural aging process may further add to hearing deficits, as it does in the general population.

"The results show the importance of comprehensive hearing assessments, preferably, both before and after treatments," Dr. Travis said. "Our findings suggest that health care providers should, at a minimum, annually query patients who have received cisplatin-based chemotherapy about their hearing status, consulting with audiologists as indicated. Patients should also be urged to avoid noise exposure, drugs having adverse effects on hearing, and other factors that may further damage hearing."

INSTITUTE SPOTLIGHT

Young African-American adults are less susceptible to delirium in ICU than Caucasians

Jennifer Guiliano

Babar A. Khan, M.D.

The first study to evaluate the relationship between race and intensive care unit delirium has found that African-American ICU patients age 18 to 50 are less susceptible to delirium than similarly aged Caucasians or than either African-American or Caucasian ICU patients age 50 or older.

Delirium is a state of confusion that comes on suddenly and is associated with longer ICU and hospital stays, increased costs of care and higher death rate. Known risk factors for developing delirium in the ICU include age, pre-existing cognitive impairment, and sedation (often used in conjunction with mechanical ventilation). Prior to the new study by researchers from the Regenstrief Institute and the Indiana University Center for Aging Research, the relationship between race and delirium had not been systematically evaluated.

"Relationship between African-American Race and Delirium in the Intensive Care Unit" was published online ahead of print in the journal Critical Care Medicine.

"Since African-Americans tend to have higher disease severity in the ICU, we were surprised to find that race could be a protective factor for younger African-American adults," said Regenstrief Institute investigator and IU Center for Aging Research scientist Babar A. Khan, M.D., the first author of the study.

"We now know that race should be considered among the risk factors for developing delirium for Caucasians of all ages but only for African-Americans if they are 50 or older. Clearly, different groups have different risk profiles for delirium."

A total of 2,087 adults, admitted to a medical or surgical ICU, 48 percent of whom were African-Americans, participated in the study. The majority participated in an indigent care program or state Medicaid program and were thus considered to be of similar economic status. All had ready access to healthcare services and delivery at Eskenazi Health, a health care system that puts special emphasis on vulnerable populations in the metropolitan Indianapolis area. Dr. Khan is the medical director of the Eskenazi Health Critical Care Recovery Center.

Study: Violations of privacy rights by fusion centers are the exception, not the rule

Jeremy Carter, Ph.D.

Jeremy Carter, Ph.D.

Concerns that law enforcement fusion centers are violating individuals' privacy rights as they gather intelligence on terrorism, criminals and other threats to public safety are the exception and certainly not the rule, according to a study published in the Journal of Police and Criminal Psychology.

The paper "Law Enforcement Fusion Centers: Cultivating an Information Sharing Environment while Safeguarding Privacy" authored by Jeremy Carter, an assistant professor in the School of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, addresses the privacy-rights issue, among others.

The national network of fusion centers in the U.S., currently numbering 78, was created in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. In the wake of the attacks, the need for greater information-sharing and increased intelligence capabilities across various law enforcement levels and locales became widely apparent.

The idea was to try to have the necessary pieces of information funneled to a fusion center so analysts could stay abreast of potential threats and then relay that information back to law enforcement to mitigate the threat, Carter said.

The fusion centers were designed to enhance information-sharing among law enforcement agencies, public agencies and private organizations by acting as hubs for information and intelligence on terrorist, criminal and other public safety threats.

Given the large quantities of information being collected, coupled with an emphasis on terrorism and multijurisdictional partnerships, concerns about privacy and civil rights have surfaced to question the legitimacy of fusion center operations, Carter said.

Some people are concerned that fusion centers are "Big Brother watching us" and that information is being gathered about people regardless of whether they've done anything wrong, he said.

TRANSLATIONAL RESEARCH IMPACT

IU researchers begin PET scans of certain older patients in new Alzheimer's related study

In a new Alzheimer's disease-related initiative, Indiana University School of Medicine researchers have begun using PET brain scans to look for signs of abnormal protein deposits known as amyloid plaques in older patients who have been diagnosed with mild cognitive problems.

The new project, part of a national research study that will enroll more than 18,000 participants, was made possible by Medicare's decision to reimburse for the amyloid PET brain scans in the study.

The Imaging Dementia - Evidence for Amyloid Scanning Study, known as the IDEAS Study, will use amyloid PET brain scans to determine whether participants have abnormal deposits of amyloid proteins in the brain, which are closely associated with Alzheimer's disease. The IDEAS Study is led by the Alzheimer’s Association and managed by the American College of Radiology and American College of Radiology Imaging Network.

Although imaging technologies to identify amyloid deposits in the brain have been available for several years, Medicare -- the federal government’s health insurance program for Americans age 65 and older -- has decided only to cover the scans in the context of this study in order to learn more about the impact of amyloid PET brain scans before making a final decision on coverage for Medicare beneficiaries who may benefit from the scan.

The research goal of the IDEAS Study is to determine whether knowing that patients have the amyloid deposits will change physicians' treatment plans for those patients. Researchers will also gauge after 12 months whether this knowledge had an effect on hospitalizations and emergency room visits.

At least 200 participants will be enrolled at the IU School of Medicine and IU Health, said Liana Apostolova, M.D., Barbara and Peer Baekgaard Professor of Alzheimer's Disease Research and principal investigator for the research study at IU.

Participants must be age 65 or older and have been diagnosed as having mild cognitive impairment or other objective measures of cognitive decline. The participants may be referred to the trial by any physician, but IU dementia specialists will make the final determination of who qualifies for the trial. As with any medical service covered by Medicare, participants will be responsible for any deductible or co-payment required for the service. The actual amount that the individual will pay will depend on their Medicare plan.

NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION

Energy-Efficient Computing: from Devices to Architectures: There is a consensus across the many industries touched by our ubiquitous computing infrastructure that future performance improvements across the board are now severely limited by the amount of energy it takes to manipulate, store, and transport data. While the limits and tradeoffs for this performance-energy crisis vary across the range of application platforms, they have all reached a point at which evolutionary approaches to addressing this challenge are no longer adequate.

Truly disruptive breakthroughs are now required, and not just from any one segment of the technology stack. Rather, due to the complexity of the challenges, revolutionary new approaches are needed at each level in the hierarchy. Furthermore, simultaneous co-optimization across all levels is essential for the creation of new, sustainable computing platforms. These simultaneous technical and organizational challenges have never been as complex or as critically important as they are now. The urgency of solving the multi-disciplinary technical challenges will require new methods of collaboration and organization among researchers. Therefore, a comprehensive and collaborative approach must be undertaken to maximize the potential for successfully identifying and implementing revolutionary solutions to break through the bottleneck of energy-constrained computational performance. Programmers, system architects, circuit designers, chip processing engineers, material scientists, and computational chemists must all explore these new paths together to co-design an optimal solution path.

The NSF and the Semiconductor Research Corporation embark on a new collaboration to support compelling research that is of paramount importance to industry, academia, and society. This partnership will specifically support new research to minimize the energy impacts of processing, storing, and moving data within future computing systems, and will be synergistic with other research activities that address other aspects of this overarching energy-constrained computing performance challenge. Deadline: Application: March 28, 2017 http://www.nsf.gov/publications/pub_summ.jsp?ods_key=nsf16526

Critical Resilient Interdependent Infrastructure Systems and Processes (CRISP): The goals of this solicitation are to: 1) foster an interdisciplinary research community of engineers, computer and computational scientists and social and behavioral scientists, that creates new approaches and engineering solutions for the design and operation of infrastructures as processes and services; 2) enhance the understanding and design of interdependent critical infrastructure systems (ICIs) and processes that provide essential goods and services despite disruptions and failures from any cause, natural, technological, or malicious; 3) create the knowledge for innovation in ICIs so that they safely, securely, and effectively expand the range of goods and services they enable; and 4) improve the effectiveness and efficiency with which they deliver existing goods and services.

These goals lead to the following specific objectives:1) To create new knowledge, approaches, and engineering solutions to increase resilience, performance, and readiness in ICIs; 2) To create theoretical frameworks and multidisciplinary models of ICIs, processes and services, capable of analytical prediction of complex behaviors, in response to system and policy changes; 3) To develop frameworks to understand interdependencies created by the interactions between the physical, the cyber (computing, information, computational, sensing and communication), and social, behavioral and economic elements of ICIs. These could include, but are not limited to, software frameworks for modeling and simulation using advanced cyber infrastructures, management, monitoring and real-time control of interdependent ICIs and novel software engineering methodologies; and 4) to study socioeconomic, political, legal and psychological obstacles to improving ICIs and identifying strategies for overcoming those obstacles.

Projects supported under this solicitation may undertake the collection of new data or use existing curated data depending on the category of award, and must recognize that a primary objective is integrative, predictive modeling that can use the data to validate the models and that can be integrated into decision making. Deadline: March 7, 2017. http://www.nsf.gov/publications/pub_summ.jsp?ods_key=nsf16519

Innovations at the Nexus of Food, Energy, and Water Systems (INFEWS): Factors contributing to stresses in food, energy, and water (FEW) systems include increasing regional/social pressures and governance issues as result of land use change, climate variability, and resource distribution. These interdependencies associated with the food, energy and water nexus create research grand challenges in understanding how the complex, coupled processes of society and the environment function now, and in the future.

FEW systems must be defined broadly, incorporating physical processes (built infrastructure and new technologies), natural processes (biogeochemical and hydrologic cycles), biological processes (agroecosystem structure and productivity), social/behavioral processes (decision making and governance), and cyber elements. Investigations of these complex systems may produce discoveries that cannot emerge from research on food or energy or water systems alone. It is the synergy among these components in the context of sustainability that will open innovative science and engineering pathways to produce new knowledge and novel technologies to solve the challenges of scarcity and variability.

The NSF INFEWS initiative is designed specifically to attain the following goals: 1) Significantly advance the understanding of the food-energy-water system through quantitative and computational modeling, including support for relevant cyberinfrastructure; 2) Develop real-time, cyber-enabled interfaces that improve understanding of the behavior of FEW systems and increase decision support capability; 3) Enable research that will lead to innovative system and technological solutions to critical FEW problems; and 4) Grow the scientific workforce capable of studying and managing FEW systems.

This solicitation outlines four tracks of research: 1) FEW System Modeling, 2) Visualization and Decision support for Cyber-Human-Physical Systems at the FEW Nexus, 3) Research to Enable Innovative Solutions; and 4) Education and Workforce Development. Deadline: March 22, 2017. http://www.nsf.gov/publications/pub_summ.jsp?ods_key=nsf16533
