Shyam Visweswaran, a biomedical informatics professor and vice chair of clinical informatics in Pitt's School of Medicine, began a four-year term as a charter member of the Clinical Informatics and Digital Health (CIDH) Study Section on July 1. The section is part of the Center for Scientific Review of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which has over 250 chartered or recurring study sections.

Members of the study sections — which review most investigator-initiated research applications submitted to the NIH — are chosen for their demonstrated competence and accomplishment in their scientific discipline, as demonstrated by the quality of their research, scientific journal publications and other significant scientific achievements.

Visweswaran’s research focuses on developing, implementing and evaluating high performance clinical decision support systems powered by artificial intelligence. At Pitt, he also directs the Center for Clinical Artificial Intelligence and the Clinical and Translational Science Institute’s Biomedical Informatics Core.
