    Barton Pilot Award     (Yasir Rahmatallah)Jan 1, 2023 - Dec 31, 2023
    Phone-Collected Speech Corpus for Remote Assessment of Parkinson’s Disease
    Role Description: This pilot study aims at establishing a speech database from people with Parkinson's disease and healthy participants. The study provides acoustical features and spectrogram images of a sustained vowel sound that could be used by machine learning methods to develop biomarkers for PD.
    Role: Principle Investigator

    OIA-1946391     (Yasir Rahmatallah)Sep 1, 2022 - Aug 31, 2024
    Machine Learning Approaches for Remote Pathological Speech Assessment for Parkinson's Disease
    Role Description: This seed research grant was funded by the DART project, sponsored by Arkansas's NSF EPSCOR program. The project will develop analysis pipelines to detect discriminative speech acoustic features between people with Parkinson's Disease and normal controls using voice recordings acquired via phone line.
    Role: Principle Investigator

    ONCB-008-19F     (Henry Wong)Sep 1, 2021 - Aug 31, 2025
    Epigenetic Regulation of Differentially Expressed Genes in Cutaneous T Cell Lymphoma
    Role Description: This VA funded Clinical Merit research project explores gene expression and DNA methylation patterns associated with cutaneous T-cell lymphoma in the Veterans population.
    Role: Co-Investigator

    P20GM121293     (Alan Tackett)Oct 1, 2017 - Sep 30, 2018
    Integrating Gene Expression Profiles from Different Platforms into a Robust and Clinically Relevant Prognostic and Predictive Tool for Pediatric Leukemia
    Role Description: This COBRE pilot project explores computational approaches to integrate RNA-seq and microarray expression profiles of unmatched samples to find expression signatures with clinical prognostic relevance to pediatric B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia and acute myeloid leukemia patients.
    Role: Principle Investigator

    P20GM121293     (ZYBAYLOV, BORIS)Jul 1, 2017 - Jun 30, 2022
