Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Improving the phenotyping of the major (chronic) heart, lung, and blood diseases

Which phenotypic and molecular characteristics predict differential responses to therapy in individuals with chronic heart, lung, blood, and sleep (HLBS) diseases?

Is this idea a Compelling Question (CQ) or Critical Challenge (CC)? Compelling Question (CQ)

Details on the impact of addressing this CQ or CC

• Enable pathophysiologically targeted therapies and prevention
• Enable subgroup assessment of intervention
• Better define gene-gene and gene-environment interactions
• Improve risk stratification
• Understand those who are protected against disease
• Inform development of better in vitro and in vivo models to assess disease and response

Feasibility and challenges of addressing this CQ or CC

Advances in –omics, diagnostics, cell biology, imaging are ready to be applied

Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Novel technologies to save minutes and lives

There is a need to develop hand-held portable imaging or other technologies that can help paramedics to collect and transmit data when patients are undergoing cardiovascular events.

Is this idea a Compelling Question (CQ) or Critical Challenge (CC)? Critical Challenge (CC)

Details on the impact of addressing this CQ or CC

Save time and lives for patients destined to Emergency

Feasibility and challenges of addressing this CQ or CC

The component technologies are developed enough to integrate them in the next 5-10 years
Time spent waiting for an ambulance, driving to a hospital and enduring diagnostic tests before medical intervention can quickly add up, especially with patients undergoing cardiovascular events. In the era of internet, smartphones, and portable imaging and handheld technologies, saving valuable time during which paramedics can be assisting the emergency physicians in diagnosing heart attacks and help to identify and start the needed intervention at once when the patient arrive at the hospital.
