Brain Tumor Informatics at BMI
Brain cancer has complex underlying mechanisms that promote tumors through multiple signaling networks hosted in a number of molecularly discrete diseases. A quantitative understanding can lead to a better interpretation of the effects of these signaling networks.
Imaging Informatics at BMI
Radiology and Pathology images are used as key components of baseline disease classification; images are also increasingly used as biomarkers to assess treatment response. Reproducible and standardized methods of image analysis and quantification are crucial components.
Clinical and Translational Informatics at BMI
The Biomedical Informatics Department is both a leader and a collaborator in a variety of research projects that call for acquisition, storage, retrieval and analysis of clinical and biological datasets.
