PhD Program Deadlines:
Biomedical informatics (BMI) is an interdisciplinary field that combines knowledge of information sciences and
medical sciences to optimize use and application of biomedical data across the spectrum - from molecules to individuals to populations.
Students with a major of study in areas such as biology, mathematics, computer science, engineering, bioengineering, chemistry, or statistics are well positioned to enter the new field of biomedical informatics.
Researchers in this field use computational approaches to help solve the most pressing health problems.
Biomedical Informatics is now the key to understanding biology and medicine. As an avalanche of data and an increased sophistication of technology change the way biomedical research is conducted, the discipline of biomedical informatics is an integral
component of clinical and translational research for the health care infrastructure. Demand for researchers and health professionals trained in the field is rapidly increasing.
The graduate program in biomedical informatics at the University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is at the forefront of these trends. The program leverages partnerships between Cincinnati Children's, the UC College
of Medicine, and UC College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Students can engage in high-impact research while embedded in some of the premier health-care centers in the nation.
From genomic to clinical data, from child to adult health-care, with a leading pediatric research center and one of the nation’s first medical colleges, we are making a difference in people's’ lives. You can too.
The scope of BMI can be summarized as follows:
Main lines of research of our faculty include:
