Kevin S. Hughes, M.D.

Faculty Directory for Dr. Hughes
Our goal is to leverage the power of information technology to help identify every mutation carrier for every hereditary cancer syndrome known to man BEFORE they develop cancer. We use Artificial Intelligence, graph and relational databases, knowledge management techniques and Natural Language Processing to organize the world’s literature on germline cancer genetics. We use this Knowledge Base to develop visualizations and Clinical Decision Support Tools that help bring clinical cancer genetic testing into the mainstream. We are looking for researchers interested in becoming Domain Experts in cancer genetics to develop physician educational tools, patient facing tools, systematic reviews and knowledge discovery.
