Biomedical Informatics

Biomedical informatics involves the development and application of computational techniques to make effective use of biomedical data and knowledge for scientific inquiry and decision making, driven by efforts to improve human health. Biomedical informatics investigates and supports reasoning, modeling and simulation across the spectrum from molecules to individuals to populations, by methodological and applied research in areas such as machine learning, natural language processing, computer vision and databases. BMI faculty are especially engaged in bioinformatics, statistical genomics, medical image analysis, and clinical informatics.
