We define “biomedical informatics” to be the art and science of organizing knowledge
of human health and disease and making it useful for problem solving.


The Institute Works Across UAB Campus to:

• Conduct cutting-edge, hypothesis-driven informatics research to develop the next generation of informatics tools and techniques.
• Bring informatics tools and techniques to bear on the problems facing UAB’s researchers, clinicians and patients.
• Contribute to UAB educational programs to teach informatics at all levels of training and train the next generation of informatics researchers.
• Coordination with other informatics initiatives at UAB, most notably the Center for Genomic Medicine and the Personalized Medicine Institute.
