Daniel W. Byrne is a biostatistician, data scientist, author, and faculty member in the Department of Biostatistics in the School of Medicine at Vanderbilt University, with secondary appointments in the Departments of Biomedical Informatics and Medicine.  He is the project leader for "Cornelius - Next Generation Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare".   His Cornelius team is testing in randomized controlled trials whether real-time predictive models embedded in the electronic health record (EHR) can be used to focus prevention and improve health outcomes.

 

He has received numerous teaching awards and currently teaches two graduate level courses in the Vanderbilt MSCI (https://medschool.vanderbilt.edu/msci/) program - Biostatistics I and Medical Writing for Clinical Investigators.  Previously he has also taught these courses in Japan.

He is the author of an award winning book "Publishing Your Medical Research" (https://www.amazon.com/dp/1496353862) and more than 130 peer-reviewed medical research publications.

 

He is an internationally recognized predictive analytics expert with over three decades experience in healthcare risk modeling to improve patient outcomes.  His research lies at the intersection of next generation artificial intelligence in healthcare, machine learning, predictive modeling, big data analytics, precision medicine, and EHR data mining.

 

He is a member of the Vanderbilt Learning Healthcare System Platform (https://starbrite.vanderbilt.edu/hcchr/lhs) and funded by the Vanderbilt Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (VICTR).

Prior to assuming his position at Vanderbilt in 1999, he was a self-employed biostatistical consultant (Byrne Research) in Ridgefield, CT for 10 years.

Physician-scientists interested in creating predictive models and testing them in randomized controlled trials are encouraged to attend the Cornelius weekly meetings, Thursdays 3-4pm in D-2221 MCN.

Daniel Byrne received his undergraduate degree from the State University of New York at Albany and his graduate degree from New York Medical College.
