    Nicholas K. Schiltz, PhD
    Assistant Professor
    Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing
    Title: Application of Association Rule Mining to the Study of Multimorbidity and Polypharmacy

    Description: Multimorbidity and polypharmacy are common among older adults and associated with high expenditures and poor health. However, relatively little is known about the prevalence and outcomes of specific combinations of chronic disease and medications in the population. Association rule mining (ARM) is a machine learning method for discovering frequent patterns and interesting relationships between variables. ARM is commonly used in market basket analysis and computational biology, but has rarely been applied to problems in epidemiology or health services research. Dr. Schiltz will present an introduction to this method, and discuss his application of it to his on-going work in multimorbidity and polypharmacy.

    In preparation for next week's ENIGMA on CRISPR babies, I would recommend everyone read and watch the following materials:
    > The initial Associated Press article on CRISPR babies (https://www.apnews.com/4997bb7aa36c45449b488e19ac83e86d)
    > The YouTube videos published by the Lab of He Jiankui (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCn_Elifynj3LrubPKHXecwQ)
    > The ethics paper written by He Jiankui and colleagues (attached PDF) that was reportedly retracted yesterday (https://www.genengnews.com/insights/he-jiankuis-germline-editing-ethics-article-retracted-by-the-crispr-journal/)
    > An article about He's presentation at the International Summit on Human Genome Editing (https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-07573-w)
    > Official link to the retraction notice for the ethics paper written by He Jiankui and colleagues: https://www.liebertpub.com/doi/10.1089/crispr.2018.0051.retract
