Classification of Drug-Related Adverse Events

Posted by on Wednesday, January 19, 2022 in Uncategorized.

Our team is interested in developing natural language processing (NLP) systems using transformers to classify whether patients have drug-related adverse events from patients’ clinical notes in Vanderbilt University Medical Center electronic health records (EHRs), which could be potentially associated with a specific drug of interest. The Initial approach to this project will be binary classification, but future work will involve a multi-class classification task.

A student who participates in this project could be a co-author of manuscript when we write the manuscript. However, at this point, there is no funding available for this work. Please contact Leena Choi (email: if you are interested in working on this project.
