Department of Biomedical Informatics at Harvard Medical School

Accelerating medicine and empowering patients

The HMS Department of Biomedical Informatics (DBMI) is tackling one of the most crucial and currently largely unmet needs in the modern health care system: integrating, interpreting, and acting upon the complex data generated during biomedical research and the practice of medicine.

By transforming large biomedical data sets into pragmatic, computational technologies in areas like genomics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, DBMI is defining the future of precision medicine and impacting human health in ways unimaginable only a few years ago.
