BMIR Corporate Affiliates Program

BMIR is a research division in the Department of Medicine, whose mission is to develop and deploy novel computational and statistical methods to improve human health and clinical care.

The goals of the BMIR Corporate Affiliates Program are:

  • to bring real-world clinical data mining problems and perspectives into an academic setting,
  • to expose member companies to cutting-edge research in BMIR Labs, and incubate high-risk/high-reward research projects that the affiliate company cannot easily initiate in-house,
  • to provide Stanford students and postdocs opportunities for networking, recruitment, and professional development at the
      affiliate company.

All activities conducted through the Corporate Affiliates Program are shared among program members and with the general public. All membership fees are unrestricted funds used to support BMIR research and associated operations. If appropriate, targeted areas of mutual interest may lead to separate sponsored research agreements. Stanford retains first rights to publish Stanford-generated Program data and information.

Each corporate affiliate will receive substantial benefits for their financial support. Companies may join as Regular or Founding members. The duration of membership is one year, renewable by receipt of the annual payment. The membership agreement may be terminated by either party through written notice.
