General Research InterestDr. Payne’s research interests include the design and evaluation of translational research information management platforms, the use of knowledge engineering techniques to enable hypothesis discovery in multi-dimensional biomedical data sets, and implementation and assessment of high-throughput phenotyping methods and systems.
Research DescriptionDr. Payne’s research portfolio is broadly situated within the OSU Center for IT Innovation in Healthcare (CITIH), where he serves as the primary scientific leader of a group of over twenty researchers, developers, and trainees who are actively supported by a combination of NCRR, NLM, and NCI awards and contracts. His current research projects include: 1) the development and evaluation of an advanced, integrated translational research information management platform incorporating both clinical trial and bio-specimen management capabilities; 2) the application of knowledge engineering techniques to support high-throughput phenotyping and hypothesis discovery; and 3) the development of systems-level architectures and socio-technical models in order to inform and support the optimal deployment and use of information technology within the clinical and translational research environments.
Transinstitutional WorkDr. Payne currently leads the biomedical informatics programs for both the multi-center NCI-funded CLL Research Consortium, and the CTSA-funded OSU Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS). He is a member of the CTSA national Informatics Key Function Committee, and Co-Chairs the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) Clinical Research Informatics Steering Task Force. His research portfolio involves regular collaboration with and engagement of investigators and sites through the United States and international communities as part of the NCI’s Cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid (caBIG), CLL Research Consortium, and NIH CTSA programs.
