The National Collaborative for Bio-Preparedness ( NCB -Prepared) was established in 2010 to create a biosurveillance resource to enhance situational awareness and emergency preparedness. This joint-institutional effort has drawn on expertise from the University of North Carolina- Chapel Hill, North Carolina State University, and SAS Institute. NCB -Prepared provides information services that analyze and integrate data across a variety of domains, such as human clinical, veterinary, business and physical data. A primary objective of NCB -Prepared is to gather data that is closer in time to events of interest. The project has developed a production system for multiple states that can scale with robustness for national adoption.
Selected candidate will assist in developing new perspectives in biosurveillance. Specifically, the student will review two large data-sets for potential use in a biosurveillance system and identify statistical methods appropriate for application to the data-sets in order to identify health events of interest.
