circEWS: an early warning system for circulatory failure in the ICU

The Swiss Bioinformatics Graduate Paper Award went to Stephanie L. Hyland (ETH Zurich, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Weill Cornell Medicine, Zurich University Hospital), Martin Faltys (University Hospital Bern, University of Bern), Matthias Hüser (ETH Zurich, Zurich University Hospital), Xinrui Lyu (ETH Zurich, Zurich University Hospital) and Thomas Gumbsch (ETH Zurich, SIB), part of two teams led by Group Leaders Gunnar Rätsch and Karsten Borgwardt at ETH Zurich. Their paper “Early prediction of circulatory failure in the intensive care unit using machine learning”, published in Nature Medicine and resulting from a cooperation with Inselspital Bern, was singled out by the Award Committee for the “originality of the data, method and application”.
