The Department of Biostatistics & Medical Informatics (BMI) is an innovative and productive basic science department integral to the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine & Public Health (UW SMPH), an academic medical center. BMI is a leading research hub and training center for biomedical data sciences, including biostatistics and biomedical informatics. BMI investigators are engaged in basic discovery science, clinical trials, image analysis, genomics, computational biology, and population studies, and they advance research throughout the SMPH. This research is often multi-faceted and collaborative, and faculty have joint appointments with many other campus units: Statistics, Computer Sciences, Population Health Sciences, Electrical and Computer Engineering, the Morgridge Institute of Research, and the Wisconsin Institute of Discovery.
PhD in Biomedical Data Science
The current explosion of biomedical data, including Electronic medical records (EHR), biomedical imaging, and genomics/proteomics/metabolomics, provide an awesome opportunity to improve understanding of the mechanisms of disease and ultimately to improve human health care. The Doctoral Degree Program in Biomedical Data Science will provide you with a unique blend of skills including programming, data management, data analysis, and machine learning. Successful graduates will be prepared to fully harness the power of high-dimensional, heterogeneous data. Potential students include both students with bachelor’s degrees in an area of data-science (e.g., computer science, statistics), as well as health professionals, clinicians, and others with degrees related to biomedicine (e.g., biology, biochemistry, genetics). Consider applying today!
Predoctoral Training Program in Bio-Data Science (BDS)
Research to improve the analysis of big biomedical data is active at the interface of computer sciences, statistics, and various biomedical disciplines, including genomics, molecular biology, neuroscience, cancer research, and population health. The mission of the Bio-Data Science (BDS) training program is to provide predoctoral research training at this interface, preparing graduate students for key roles in academia, industry, or government.
