Department of

Biomedical Informatics


In 2014, the University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center combined forces to create the new, cross-institutional Department of Biomedical Informatics. The overall mission of this initiative is to "most effectively create and apply knowledge in order to improve the understanding, diagnosis, intervention, and prevention of health concerns for children and adults." Check out our development timeline below.

The Department of Biomedical Informatics now serves as a consolidated academic home that synergizes considerable knowledge and tool sharing as well as unique partnerships for health concerns of adults and children.


The department is focusing on developing fresh local informatics talent, pursuing innovative ideas regarding the use of big and complex biomedical data, and educating a wider spectrum of data-centric researchers and clinical staff throughout the combined campus.
