Department of Biomedical Informatics


The mission of the Department of Biomedical Informatics (BMI) is to improve people’s lives through innovation in research, education and patient care. We seek to achieve this mission by pursuing the advancement of health and biomedicine through the development, application and dissemination of novel biomedical informatics theories and methods capable of driving biological discovery, generating and translating knowledge, and advancing personalized healthcare.

These innovation focus areas rely upon theories and methods generated by a variety of BMI sub-domains including bioinformatics, computational biology, translational bioinformatics, clinical research informatics, clinical informatics and imaging informatics.

Four cross-cutting core competencies underlie our mission and vision: the understanding of human factors influencing the use of technology in the health science and biomedical domains; the application of knowledge engineering principles to support the design of intelligent systems; the use of high-performance computing principles to facilitate the analysis of multi-dimensional data; and the generation of information and knowledge from component sources using the principles of data science.
