The Stanford Center for Biomedical Informatics Research (BMIR)
Informatics is the study of information: its structure, its communication, and its use. As society becomes increasingly information intensive, the need to understand, create, and apply new methods for modeling, managing, and acquiring information has never been greater – especially in biomedicine.
BMIR is home to world class scientists and trainees developing cutting-edge ways to acquire, represent, process, and manage knowledge and data related to health, health care, and the biomedical sciences. Our faculty, students, and staff are committed to ensuring the biomedical community is properly equipped for the information age, and believe our efforts will provide the structure for the burgeoning revolution of health care and the biomedical sciences.
