The BioHealth Department offers master’s and doctoral degrees in Bioinformatics and Health Informatics, as well as certificates and Ph.D minors. Students who are interested in health and life sciences have the opportunity to explore informatics and learn how to make a difference in the health and well-being of others. Our programs focus on better access to care and disease prevention.
Translational research in bioinformatics transforms biological data into discoveries that help us better understand and improve life.
Health informatics enhances human health and well-being through the use of information technology, computer science, and knowledge management. Our graduates deliver more efficient and safer patient care and improve patient outcomes. Electronic health records, telemedicine applications, mobile health (m-health) applications, and clinical decision support are just some of the many technologies we employ in the health informatics field.
The Ph.D. in Data Science prepares graduates to develop and evaluate novel
approaches to collecting, organizing, managing, and extracting knowledge and
insights from massive, complex, heterogeneous datasets. Graduates will learn
to define and investigate relevant research problems in data science.
