Biomedical Informatics

  • Education Opportunities

    The Division of Biomedical Informatics at Cincinnati Children's Research Foundation offers educational opportunities for graduate students and researchers interested in bioinformatics and medical informatics.

  • Show All

    + Bioinformatics Graduate Program

    Our collaboration with the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Cincinnati gives students the opportunity to work closely with BMI faculty. Through course work and hands-on collaboration with faculty, students develop expertise in core areas of bioinformatics:

    • Mathematics
    • Statistics
    • Computational science
    • Basic biology
    • Molecular biology
    • Biomedicine

    Program graduates understand the theory and practice of developing and applying biocomputational models and tools in biomedical research, in addition to the theory and practice of biomedical research itself. With this knowledge, they can conduct methodological research in computational biology and biomedical research using computational methods as their primary tools.

    To assist students in meeting their goals, the Bioinformatics Graduate Program’s curriculum combines core requirements with specially tailored interdisciplinary courses in bioinformatics, biostatistics, computational biology and functional genomics. These courses help students develop tools and expertise for the integration and analysis of data and knowledge across a range of disciplines.

    For admission requirements and additional program information, visit the website of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Cincinnati.

    + Biomedical Informatics Seminar Series

    The BMI Seminar Series focuses on topics in bioinformatics and medical informatics.  Seminars occur most Fridays, 11:00-12:00, in S10.130 (exceptions noted below in bold).  A detailed schedule appears below, with topics in bioinformatics appearing in blue and topics in medical informatics appearing in white.  All interested Cincinnati Children's and University of Cincinnati faculty, staff and students are welcome. To get email notices in advance of each event, subscribe to our mailing list.

    Note:

    • Speakers put a lot of time and effort into preparing and presenting their talk. Therefore, they will greatly appreciate your punctuality. By being on time, you will not miss the introduction by the host or the all-important opening remarks. Also, if you know in advance that you will have to leave the talk early consider telling the speaker beforehand or not showing up at all. Otherwise, the speaker may feel disrespected and offended.
    • Speakers may present either a talk based on their own research or a review of one or more papers from the literature.
    • Speakers must send their topic one week in advance to Joan Taylor.
    • Speakers must arrange to trade dates with another speaker or arrange a visiting speaker if they are unable to present on the date assigned.
