Dr. Javed Mostafa, professor at the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has been awarded a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for a project titled, “Meeting Clinicians' Information Needs with Highly Tailored Knowledge Summaries.”
The project will be a four-year long effort conducted with investigators from the Mayo Clinic and the University of Utah (School of Medicine).

The focus will be on the visualization aspects, particularly on presenting the content extracted from diverse sources in an interactive display that is accurate, coherent and usable by a busy physician in the context of care.

Mostafa is the principle investigator for the UNC portion of the grant which is approximately $275,000.
