  劳伦·加德纳跻身《时代》杂志全球最具影响力100人之列

  Gardner因开发新冠病毒数据表而获得表彰,该数据表已成为关于冠状病毒大流行的集中数据的主要来源

  美国约翰霍普金斯大学(Johns Hopkins University)教授劳伦·加德纳(Lauren Gardner)被《时代》杂志(TIME)提名为世界上最具影响力的100人之一,原因是她开发了一个免费开放的网站,使国际社会能够利用可靠、独立的数据近实时地跟踪新冠疫情。

  加德纳是怀廷工程学院的土木和系统工程教授,他领导的团队在1月下旬建造了COVID-19仪表板。自那时以来,该数据表已发展成为有关该流行病的集中数据的主要来源,使各国政府、媒体和公众能够直观地看到其迅速传播。

  “我深感荣幸和他单独确认了一个工作,需要很多的辛勤工作和奉献精神,包括应用物理实验室的团队,我们的学生在系统科学与工程中心,我们的合作伙伴在ESRI,和多个同事来自约翰霍普金斯大学,谁花了不知疲倦的几周和几个月收集、验证,交付,和沟通在这个关键数据,与来自全国和世界各地的官员协调,”CSSE联席主任加德纳说。

  约翰·霍普金斯大学校长罗恩·丹尼尔斯赞扬了加德纳的开拓性远见,她在巴尔的摩霍姆伍德校园发起了一项国际努力,体现了约翰·霍普金斯大学“面向世界的知识”的宗旨,即促进智力和科学努力,使这个复杂而相互联系的世界受益。

  丹尼尔斯说:“加德纳博士的工作体现了约翰·霍普金斯大学的精神:开拓性、开拓性、跨学科的研究,改善和提高了人类的状况。”“我们目前的公共卫生危机只是强调了研究型大学在发现和传播知识方面的重要性,这些知识形成了健全的政策和有效的实践,因此我们可以应对全球社会的挑战。”

  这个仪表盘收集并显示了188个国家的数据,最初是与研究生董恩生(Ensheng Dong)合作的一个辅助项目,当时中国还在控制疫情。随着COVID-19威胁的蔓延,该地图也迅速扩展到约翰霍普金斯大学冠状病毒资源中心,该中心利用了整个大学的专业知识。在预测、预防和跟踪有可能造成灾难性国际后果的疾病方面,该指标表填补了国际公共卫生系统中的一个重大空白。

  因此,仪表板的概念被国内外政府、媒体、私营企业和高等教育机构广泛复制。有关仪表板的国际网络预计将成为各国如何改进协调应对未来大流行病和流行病的一个永久性设施。

  Gardner说:“我们最初创建并继续构建和维护这个系统,以满足在持续的公共卫生危机期间对集中、实时报告和开放数据共享的需求。”“未来,必须建立一个标准化的报告系统,系统地收集、可视化和共享新出现的传染性疾病和应呈报疾病的高质量数据。”

  全球仪表板是约翰霍普金斯冠状病毒资源中心的旗舰功能。该中心的建立是为了将数据、分析和专业知识通过大学各个学术部门以及公民影响中心和APL的协调响应向世界提供。通过布隆伯格慈善基金会(Bloomberg Philanthropies)和Stavros Niarchos基金会(Stavros Niarchos Foundation)的慈善支持,这些努力得以实现。

  资源中心跟踪的数据和趋势——以及来自约翰霍普金斯大学彭博公共卫生学院的主要专家的相应分析——已成为媒体和政府机构部署的标准,以确定跟踪、测试和公共机构跟踪的有效性。

  “作为一名工程师,劳伦对数据科学的创新应用在影响公共政策和我们理解全球范围内关键联系的能力方面非常重要,”T.E.说“艾德”施莱辛格,怀廷工程学院院长。“劳伦和她的团队所做的工作来定义公共的理解COVID-19的规模和影响,和她提供的数据使得更清楚的认识到其人数,如照明的确诊病例和疾病的结果却存在重大差别,现在凝固在全国讨论种族和经济上的不平等。”

  LAUREN GARDNER AMONG 'TIME 100' MOST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE IN THE WORLD

  Gardner is recognized for her work developing the COVID-19 Dashboard, which has become the leading source of centralized data on the coronavirus pandemic

  By Doug Donovan / Published 6 hours ago

  Johns Hopkins University professor Lauren Gardner has been named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by TIME for her work developing a free and open website that empowers the international community to track the COVID-19 pandemic in near-real time with reliable, independent data.

  Gardner, a civil and systems engineering professor in the Whiting School of Engineering, led the team that built the COVID-19 Dashboard in late January. Since then, the dashboard has evolved into the leading source of centralized data on the pandemic, allowing governments, the media, and the public to visualize its rapid spread.

  "I am deeply honored and humbled to have been individually recognized for an effort that has required the hard work and dedication of so many, including the team at the Applied Physics Lab, our students in the Center for Systems Science and Engineering, our partners at ESRI, and multiple colleagues from across Johns Hopkins University, who have spent tireless weeks and months collecting, verifying, delivering, and communicating on this critical data, in coordination with officials from around the nation and the world," said Gardner, co-director of CSSE.

  Johns Hopkins President Ron Daniels praised Gardner for her pioneering vision to launch an international effort from the Homewood campus in Baltimore that embodies the university's "Knowledge For The World" tenet of advancing intellectual and scientific endeavors that can benefit a complex, interconnected world.

  "Dr. Gardner's work exemplifies the ethos of Johns Hopkins: entrepreneurial, pioneering, interdisciplinary research that improves and advances the human condition," Daniels said. "Our current public health crisis has only served to underscore how critical research universities are to the discovery and dissemination of knowledge that shapes sound policy and effective practice so we may meet the challenges of our global community."

  The dashboard, which collects and displays data from 188 nations, began as an ancillary project with graduate student Ensheng Dong when the disease was still contained in China. As the threat from COVID-19 spread, so did the map, which quickly expanded into the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center, which harnesses expertise from across the university. The dashboard filled a major void in the international public health systems for predicting, preventing, and tracking diseases that threaten to inflict catastrophic international consequences.

  As a result, the dashboard concept has been widely replicated around the world by domestic and foreign governments, media outlets, private enterprises, and higher education institutions. An international network of related dashboards is expected to become a permanent fixture in how nations improve coordinated responses to future pandemics and epidemics.

  "We initially created and continue to build and maintain this system to address the need for centralized, real-time reporting and open data sharing during an ongoing public health crisis," Gardner said. "Moving forward, it is imperative that a standardized reporting system for systematically collecting, visualizing, and sharing high-quality data on emerging infectious and notifiable diseases in real-time is established."

  The global dashboard is the flagship feature of the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center. The center was built to expand the data, analysis, and expertise made available to the world through a coordinated response across every academic division of the university, as well as the Centers for Civic Impact and the APL. Those efforts have been made possible through philanthropic support from Bloomberg Philanthropies and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

  The data and trends tracked on the resource center—and the corresponding analysis from leading experts in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health—have become standards deployed by the media and government agencies to determine effectiveness in tracking, testing, and tracing by public agencies.

  "As an engineer, Lauren's innovative applications of data science are tremendously important in terms both of influencing public policy and our ability to understand critical connections at the global scale," said T.E. "Ed" Schlesinger, dean of the Whiting School of Engineering. "The work done by Lauren and her team has come to define the public's understanding of the scale and impact of COVID-19, and the data she's made available has enabled a more nuanced understanding of its toll, such as illuminating significant disparities in confirmed cases and disease outcomes that are now solidified in the national conversation about racial and economic inequality."
