The Biomedical Informatics Practicum is a project oriented course that combines the use of electronic medical records and other clinical informatics systems with research questions centered on Omics studies, personalized and preventive medicine, and quality of health care delivery. The projects will be designed to use state-of-the-art techniques and up to date data sets to identify current challenges develop solutions.
BMIN 8089 - Dissertation Research
Research tasks as advised by the dissertation adviser shall be completed.
GNTD 7003 - Ethics in Research
This course introduces students to ethical theories generally and the ethical and regulatory issues they are likely to encounter as researchers. Students will learn to identify issues, how to analyze ethical issues in research, and to develop coherent justifications for their ethical and responsible conduct of research.
GNTD 8001C - Introduction to Functional Genomics
This course consists of lectures/seminars on the theory and use of functional genomics approaches in biomedical research. Each lecture is accompanied by a lab session in an electronic classroom that provides hands-on experience in practical application of functional genomics principles. A key part of the course is group research projects in which students analyze primary genomics data to answer research questions.
