HBGDki Team

An interdisciplinary team from across the globe

Envisioning the future of public health through open data science

In 2013, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation created the Healthy Birth, Growth, and Development program (HBGD) to ensure that all children can regain control of their futures, maximize their potential, and have the opportunity to lead a healthy and productive life.

Within HBGD, the knowledge integration initiative (HBGDki) aims to answer the key questions by analyzing the large body of data that already exists. We have organized a team of researchers, data scientists, visualization experts, and policy makers from around the world for this work.

HBGDki Surge Teams

Global Health Analytics Platform

The HBGDki Global Health Analytics Platform, or GHAP, is a cloud-based computing platform that enables users to contribute, curate, and analyze data securely. Data Contributors upload data sets to GHAP, and analysts launch virtual computing environments to access diverse applications and tools to perform modeling and analyses with authorized data sets.

Team Members

Quantitative Physiologic Modeling

The HBGDki Quantitative Physiologic Modeling – or qPM – surge team is developing an integrative framework to quantitatively characterize the relations between physiological mechanisms of growth and clinically observable growth endpoints. Team experts in physiology, nutrition, and quantitative modeling review published mechanistic physiology studies to establish meaningful and relevant model components and estimate the strength of interactions between covariates.

Team Members

Policy, Delivery, & Implementation

The HBGDki Policy, Delivery, & Implementation surge team– renamed Population & Surveillance Data Integration team – is analyzing the effects of multilevel factors on poor growth outcomes. The team is developing models and tools to quantitatively characterize heterogeneity and interactions between factors in populations that suffer from growth faltering and impaired neurocognitive development.

Team Members

Lifecycle, Auxology, and Neurocognitive Development

The HBGDki Lifecycle, Auxology, and Neurocognitive Development surge team strives to better understand the variability in sensitivity, intensity, and duration of growth faltering caused by insults, and to optimize how targeted interventions may promote recovery during critical growth and development periods across the life cycle. The team members are modeling growth trajectories to enable better predictions about outcomes of growth and neurocognitive development.

Team Members

Neurocognitive Development

The HBGDki Neurocognitive Development Team aims to quantify relations and drivers of variability in neurocognitive growth and development in children. The team also seeks to characterize the neurocognitive effects of different environmental exposures and socioeconomic conditions, and to identify clear, data-driven, actionable targets to lower risk factors for delayed neurocognitive development.

Team Members

Data Management & Visualization—Visualization

The success of HBGDki in finding solutions to growth faltering and impaired neurocognitive development depends on our best possible understanding of the data. Solutions are discovered faster when data analysis and modeling are tightly coupled with visualization in the iterative research process.

Team Members

Fetal Growth, Pregnancy, & Newborn Outcomes

The HBGDki Fetal Growth, Pregnancy, & Newborn Outcomes surge team includes experts in applied statistics and mathematics, biostatistics, and clinical research. They are leveraging with the HBGDki knowledge base to quantitatively characterize the interactions between maternal and fetal factors that drive fetal development, pregnancy and newborn outcomes, and postnatal growth and development.

Team Members

HBGDki Knowledge Management Platform (kikm)

The HBGDki Knowledge Management platform – or kikm – uses modern graph and knowledge-enhanced search capabilities to maximize communication and accelerate learning between the HBGDki data curators, data analysts, model developers, statisticians, and leadership. As new information and insights are generated, the kikm graph matures and enables detailed deep-dive into problems and solutions addressed by HBGDki to improve maternal and child health globally.

Team Members

Data Management & Visualization—Curation

The Data Management & Visualization surge team reduces the time to early insights by curating analysis data sets with state-of-the-art common data specification, security, and quality standards. The Data team serves as the critical link for all HBGDki teams by making the data available with proper format and documentation to support all deep data analyses and modeling.

Team Members

Data Contributors & Partners

The HBGDki knowledge base and science work wouldn’t be possible without our partners who contribute their study data and talents. List complete as of Feb. 14, 2018.
