Data Assimilation Approaches Using Clinical Data to Forecast and Phenotype Glucose Dynamics

This talk will address data assimilation (DA) applied to the glucose-insulin system in the two clinical contexts, type-2 diabetes (T2DM) and intensive care unit (ICU) glycemic management. I will introduce the application context, the endocrine models we use, the DA methods we use, and then show how they work when applied to clinical data collected in the process of managing patients and understanding physiology. Among the problems I will discuss include forecasting glycemic state in real time and inferring model-based phenotypes such as T2DM. Finally, I will discuss how DA fails and some of the larger modeling and DA-related problems that loom over applying these methods in clinical settings.
