From individual diagnostic tests to mechanistic insights at the molecular level and large-scale epidemiologic studies, the field of medicine involves the continual collection of a staggering amount of data. Our emerging ability to mine this abundance of information for new insights and perspectives promises to have a transformative impact on our understanding of human biology and our fight against disease.
The BDSI comprises a Faculty Leadership, Infrastructure Committee, and Education Committee, which bring together teams of superb educators and investigators each contributing expertise in areas ranging from Computational Genomics to Computational Biophysics and Systems Pharmacology; Biomedical Engineering, Imaging, and Visualization; Biostatistics, Clinical Epidemiology, and Clinical Trials; Environmental Medicine and Public Health; Health System Design; and Health Information Technology. Together, we are dedicated to organizing research and educational endeavors in the area of biomedical data science across the many ISMMS departments and institutes in the pursuit of entirely new paradigms and frontiers in health care delivery.
