MBI Capstone Requirement

A mentored, hands-on capstone experience complements the Master of Biomedical Informatics program, tailored to each student’s professional expertise and interests. Our program participants are paired with faculty who are actively bringing quantitative methods and engineering to biomedicine.

Working in collaboration with their mentor, students will participate in Biomedical Informatics research. They gain practical, real-life understanding applying what they are learning in the courses as they work alongside a Biomedical Informatics leader in their area of interest. Typical capstone projects include the development of new methods and tools, creation of data resources, and analyses of biomedical data.
