Graduate Certificate in Biomedical Data Analytics
Biomedical data propels health care innovation
Develop the skills to confidently explore Big Data and lead the way to intelligent, integrated health care. Analyzing biomedical research data is a key component of decision-making among health professionals today.
You’ll be prepared to conduct analytical research on this data, for use by patients, physicians, nurses and others, when you earn a Graduate Certificate in Biomedical Data Analytics from the IU School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI.
Health care decisions are some of the most critical we will ever make. The biomedical data analyst plays an essential role in improving medical treatment, by data mining and integrating health records to reveal patterns that can be used to craft informed policy.
Be part of the next generation of biomedical data analytics. Learn the skills to help turn data into knowledge that can revolutionize the delivery of health care.
Resources for biological science research
Studying at IUPUI puts you at a campus with a focus on health care. Our students and faculty use emerging technologies in research projects that explore the frontiers of science. Bioinformatics is a discipline with tremendous impact and significant research initiatives in Indiana and at IUPUI.
You’ll work with real-world health and clinical data as you earn your certificate, and draw upon collaborative resources such as Dow AgroSciences and the Indiana Biosciences Research Institute. The internationally recognized Bioinformatics faculty at IUPUI have processed a valuable collection of omics and other bioinformatics data, using tools invented by their researchers.
Careers in Biomedical Informatics
As the volume of data expands, so do the employment opportunities in biomedical analytics, both in genomics-driven data (genotyping, next-generation sequencing), and in payer-provider information (insurance, pharmacy, and electronic health records).
The rise of precision medicine, with therapies tailored to patients’ particular conditions, offers data analysts the chance to create new treatments for diseases such as cancer, tuberculosis, and AIDS. You’ll graduate with the skills to integrate data from micro-level DNA, RNA, and proteins to macro-level population health.
Your degree from IUPUI can prepare you for positions such as:
