The Tissue Microenvironment class was privileged to spend an hour and a half talking with Dr. Oguzhan Alagoz from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. Alagoz came in from Wisconsin to speak to the ISE Graduate Seminar students, but graciously took time out to speak to the TiMe students about his experience in data informatics. Dr. Alagoz discussed his work on developing a mammography screening schedule for different populations based on prior screening history and personal risk characteristics of women. Although data analysis and tissue engineering seem far removed, students were able to ask about the specific markers the screening looked at as well as how engineering and the hospital setting can be intertwined.

Dr. Oguzhan Alagoz is a Professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is also a professor at the Department of Population Health Sciences and serves as the director of NIH-funded Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR)-Simulation Center as well as the associated director for Wisconsin Institute for Healthcare Systems Engineering (WIHSE). The TiMe group thanks him for his time, questions, and imparted wisdom!
