Mark Musen

At the Stanford Center for Biomedical Research (BMIR) we develop cutting-edge ways to acquire, represent, and process information about human health. Our work enables the Institute of Medicine’s vision for a Learning Health System by translating biomedical data into actionable insights for decision making. Our research advances the state of the art in semantic technology, biostatistics, and the modeling of biomedical systems to benefit clinical and translational research as well as patient care.
