Dr. Durant is an Assistant Professor of Laboratory Medicine and informatics researcher at the Yale School of Medicine. He received his MD from the University of Connecticut and completed a clinical pathology residency and clinical microbiology fellowship at Yale-New Haven Hospital. He is the medical Director of Chemical Pathology, Medical Director of Laboratory Information Technology (IT), and the Associate Director for the ACGME Chemical Pathology Fellowship. His primary research focus is in clinical informatics, using novel data management technology and machine learning to enhance quality improvement and business intelligence for laboratories and patient care. Ongoing projects involve the investigation of stream processing of interface data, adapted to the study of moving averages and automated curation of antibiogram data. Machine learning related projects include the use of 'very deep' convolutional neural networks for automated classification of digital images acquired in the clinical laboratory.
