Aurel.Cami AT childrens.harvard.edu



Dr. Aurel Cami is a member of the faculty at Harvard Medical School and the Children's Hospital Boston Informatics Program. His work focuses on developing advanced mathematical models to address important public health challenges, from pandemic tracking to drug safety and predictive medicine.


He has developed novel approaches for predicting unknown adverse drug events and drug-drug interactions years in advance, developed predictive models of readmission of Heart Failure patients, and integrated population mobility into a system for detecting bioterrorist attacks.


Dr. Cami received his Ph.D. from UCF and completed his postdoctoral training as an NIH Fellow in Biomedical Informatics at both the University of Pittsburgh and Harvard Medical School.
