Courses offered by the Program in Biomedical Informatics have the subject code BIOMEDIN, and are listed in the "Biomedical Informatics [BIOMEDIN] Courses" section of this bulletin.

The program in Biomedical Informatics emphasizes research to develop novel computational methods that can advance biomedicine. Students receive training in the investigation of new approaches to conceptual modeling and to development of new algorithms that address challenging problems in the biological sciences and clinical medicine. Students with a primary interest in developing new informatics methods and knowledge are best suited for this program. Students with a primary interest in the biological or medical application of existing informatics techniques may be better suited for training in the application areas themselves.
