Our Prediction Modelling Group provides a forum for researchers at King's College London’s Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) and clinicians at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, who are interested in prediction modelling applications for precision medicine.
Prediction models to support clinical decision-making have been around for a long time, but have only become possible on a large scale this century with the arrival of new data such as brain imaging, omics, clinical databases and patient health records, sensors in wearables, smartphones and the internet, and high-performance computing technology that collects, processes, stores and analyses huge amounts of information (so-called ‘big data’).
However, the development of prediction models in psychiatry is often more challenging than in other areas of medicine (see more details here).
The group aims to:
- increase communication, information exchange and collaboration between researchers
- convene working groups to identify and solve problems
- develop guidelines for good practice in prediction modelling
To facilitate this, we are establishing a database of our members, including details of research interests and expertise.
If you are interested in joining the group, you can do so here. We ask that you provide us with your name, position, department, interest and expertise, and a short statement about yourself.
We also have a Machine Learning and Prediction Modelling seminar group, which meets on the first Wednesday of every month at 4pm. If you are interested in joining this group, please contact Deborah Agbedjro
