About

Bioinformatics and Computational Biomedicine at Oregon Health & Science University deals with the analysis, handling, and comprehension of the large amounts of data produced by advanced techniques used in modern biological research (especially genomics, proteomics, and molecular and cellular biology).

Overview

The Division of Bioinformatics & Computational Biomedicine within the Department of Medical Informatics and Clinical Epidemiology (DMICE) provides a unified academic home for an array of disparate educational programs, inter-linked activities and collaborative research efforts across Oregon Health & Science University and beyond. 

Key Features 

  • The interdisciplinary coursework draws on inter-institutional faculty expertise at Portland State University and OHSU, and is synergistic with work in the Department of Public Health & Preventive Medicine, the Knight Cancer Institute, the Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute (OCTRI), and the Kaiser Center for Health Research.
  • Our bioinformatics track offers a rigorous, interdisciplinary submersion in statistics, algorithms, research methods, biology, and computation, with special attention paid to the areas that these competencies overlap (i.e. computational biology). Students are thus given the knowledge and skills to become successful researchers and analysts within the field of bioinformatics.
