Dr. Ortiz is working on adapting a model of the glucose-insulin system in order to simulate and study treatment protocols of hyperglycemic ICU patients.  His current approach is to fit the rapidly varying blood glucose levels of real patients into the model by using modification of hepatic glucose output.  Dr. Ortiz has practiced medicine for 30 years and has returned for a post doctorate degree at UVA in Systems Engineering.  Dr. Ortiz enjoys working with energetic staff at CDT and with the powerful technology now available.
