Biomedical Informatics Research

The Division of Biomedical Informatics (BMI) at Cincinnati Children's Research Foundation is committed to improving pediatric and adult health outcomes through the innovative application of biomedical data and informatics. Our researchers, staff and students use computational methods to solve pressing health problems in bioinformatics, clinical informatics and genomics. Our research advances the understanding of comparative/functional genomics, systems biology, and proteomics; natural language processing; genome-wide association studies of diseases; data warehousing and data mining; and high-performance computing.

Leveraging partnerships between the third-best pediatric institution in the United States (Cincinnati Children's) and one of the nation's oldest medical colleges (University of Cincinnati College of Medicine), we also educate the next generation of researchers through our Biomedical Informatics Graduate Program. Our PhD and graduate certificate offer students the opportunity to engage in high-impact research in a number of investigational areas.

We also provide a number of services to support basic, clinical and translational research initiatives at Cincinnati Children’s. Our faculty and staff can assist with research IT and infrastructure, artificial intelligence and predictive analytics solutions, data and technology services, web/mobile application development, and other bioinformatics tools and methods.
