Along with an interdisciplinary group that included ITS director Dr.

To conduct the analysis, his team used expression values of cytokines to recognize possible molecular pathways activated in different groups of patients. These pathways could enable future targeted remedies and diagnosis. Neil Sarkar, the 2011 AMIA TBI conference chair, praised Bhavnani’s paper as ‘impressive at explaining complex ideas intuitively’ and ‘truly translational in nature.’ AMIA TBI is usually a leading meeting for translational bioinformatics, and received over 150 demonstration proposals from all over the world.Although the extensive analysis didn’t include caffeine drinks such as coffee or cola, Dr. Danielle McCarthy, the lead author, says the issue is partly down to the fact that people do not think about caffeine as a drug but instead as a food product. Dr. McCarthy from the Northwestern University in Chicago, says people using caffeine pills and supplements need to know that caffeine is a drug and it’s overuse is potentially dangerous, especially when it is mixed with other pharmaceuticals to induce euphoria.
