I will present the project DRONE (https://www.uib.no/en/epistat/139849/drone-drug-repurposing-neurological-diseases) – Drug Repurposing fOr Neurological disEases (PI: Prof. Trond Riise), where we employ modern statistical techniques and combine those with bioinformatics, machine learning, and biological experiments to find new drugs for «old» diseases. The project uses big data from Norwegian health registries, where we have unique insight into prescription history and diagnoses. The traditional approach to discover a new drug is very costly and takes many years to finish. At the same time, there are already hundreds of drugs on the market being used by millions of people in Norway. Therefore, by exploring the information on what types of drugs are used by individuals that were diagnosed with a certain disease, we can uncover interesting associations between drugs and the risk change of an illness.
