Biomedical Informatics Program Mission Statement

The program in Biomedical Informatics emphasizes research to develop and apply 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 who seek graduate training in biomedicine and who wish to use computational methods in their pursuit of research questions in those domain areas may be better suited to other Stanford's graduate programs in the Biosciences. Please consider your choice of Home Program carefully.
