The Master of Science in Bioinformatics at the University of Missouri - Kansas City supports the education of students interested in a career in bioinformatics or clinical research. 


Our graduates master core competencies that allow them to participate in biological research, clinical and population health research, or research to develop innovative information systems. We work passionately to equip the next generation of health researchers by emphasizing patient-oriented research in the context of state-of-the-art medical informatics.

All of our students in the Bioinformatics program at the University of Missouri - Kansas City have earned a bachelor’s level degree from a nationally-accredited university. Many of our students have also earned a graduate degree or a graduate level professional degree in various fields. Their diverse backgrounds include biology, computer science, mathematics, and other allied health professions. Often our students have limited clinical experience and need exposure to the skills necessary to thrive in the evolving field of clinical research.

What do our students do after graduation?

We anticipate that graduates will participate in and/or direct domestic and international research projects, public health activities, and clinical practice with evidenced-based orientations. The list below suggests other ways graduates will impact the health of their community:

  • Design databases, plan new clinical trials, and conduct decision analyses based on existing clinical data
