Duke appoints leadership team to health data sciences center

Durham, N.C.-based Duke University plans to rename its Health Data Sciences Center, the university announced Oct. 18.

The team at Duke Forge — the center's new name — will facilitate inter-campus collaborations focused on data science research in health and biomedical sciences. It will also serve as a laboratory for Duke researchers and their partners to develop prototype projects related to health data science.

Robert M. Califf, MD, vice chancellor for health data science at Duke Health and part of the senior management team for the Alphabet company Verily Health Sciences, led Duke Forge in recruiting a leadership team of clinical faculty.

The Duke Forge leadership team includes two Duke faculty members: Amy H. Herring, a professor in the department of statistical science, and Erich Huang, MD, PhD, assistant dean for biomedical informatics and assistant professor in the department of biostatistics and bioinformatics. Victoria Christian, former COO of Duke's Margolis Center for Health Policy, will serve as Duke Forge's COO.

The leadership team appointed two additional faculty members, Megan Clowse, MD, an associate professor of medicine and a clinical researcher, and Yousuf Zafar, MD, an associate professor of medicine and public policy, as clinical associate directors.
