The Ohio State University
Biomedical Informatics is, "the field that is concerned with the optimal use of information, often aided by the use of technology and people, to improve individual health, health care, public health, and biomedical research"1.
The Department of Biomedical Informatics (BMI) is the scholarly home for Biomedical Informatics research, education, and practice at The Ohio State University. Faculty, staff, and trainees in BMI pursue a broad range of basic and applied Biomedical Informatics innovations, spanning a translational spectrum from the basic sciences to clinical practice to public health. A cornerstone of these endeavors is the conduct of interdisciplinary team science, enabled via interaction and engagement with complimentary health sciences, biological, mathematical, computational, engineering, cognitive, and management disciplines and programs found throughout the campus of The Ohio State University.
