CCM Faculty Featured in Two Articles in Pitt Med, Fall 2014 Issue


Two stories in the most recent issue of Pitt Med magazine (Fall 2014) feature CCM faculty and projects. The cover story, entitled “Big is Beautiful: Large Trials can Divulge Unexpected Results,” discusses the challenges and rewards of large, multi-center trials and cites studies by Dr. Derek Angus (ProCESS) and Dr. David Huang (ProACT). 

Another feature, entitled “An App a Day Keeps the Doctor Away,” addresses the increasing role of technology in health, and highlights multiple apps that could potentially be useful in addressing certain medical issues. One of these apps, ThinkSepsis, developed by Dr. Christopher Seymour and collaborators in the Clinical and Translational Science Institute, seeks to raise the awareness of first responders in considering whether a patient may be exhibiting symptoms of sepsis.
