Data Mining for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses in Health Sciences
The work carried out in this WP involves R&D activities in the field of evidence-based medicine, including topics such as systematic reviews and meta-analyses in several fields of health sciences, through data mining of biomedical literature and databases. The work will be carried out in close collaboration with the Mathematics and Medical Sciences departments at UBI, and associated health institutions.
