Biomedical Informatics Department
The Department of Biomedical Informatics focuses on acquiring, structuring, analyzing and transforming biomedical data into information and knowledge that can be used by basic, clinical and translational researchers. The department focus includes computational research in bioinformatics and biomedical data management and integration. Biomedical Informatics at Moffitt Cancer Center is home to highly collaborative research faculty members who strive to discover innovative methodologies. They use high-dimensional data – including genomics, proteomics and clinical data – to develop computational tools for molecular diagnostics, prognostic predictions of cancer diseases and to find molecular signatures that match patients with new targeted therapies. The department is the home of the Cancer Informatics Core that provides bioinformatics, software development and data management services for Moffitt researchers. Members of the Cancer Informatics Core, staff scientists and informatics professionals work collaboratively with the biomedical informatics faculty and Research IT to maintain a state-of-the-art hardware and software infrastructures able to integrate and analyze large amounts of research and clinical data. The department is a key component of moving Moffitt toward realizing the vision of personalized and precision medicine.
