Biomedical Informatics is an interdisciplinary field at the intersection of biology, medicine, and quantitative sciences. Biomedical Informatics researchers develop new methods to integrate and analyze vast amounts of data generated in the laboratory, clinical and translationalresearch, clinical encounters, and population studies. The goals of the Department of Biomedical Informatics (DBMI) are to (1) promote excellence in biomedical informatics research, (2)collaborate with biomedical researchers in developing new quantitative methods that enable the formulation and testing of original hypotheses, (3) train the next generation of biomedical informatics specialists, and (4) interface with engineering, mathematics, informationand computer science communities, serving as a hub for quantitative scientists focused on biomedical research.
This department leads multiple federally and non-profit funded biomedical research projects, which are focused on the integration, analysis, and sharing of biomedical and health care data for the scientific community, as well as patient-centered research. In addition, the departmentruns a complex computational infrastructure that allows access and analysis of these data in a privacy-preserving manner.
