Creating Biomedical Technologies to Improve Health

RESEARCH FUNDING

Biomedical Informatics

This program supports the development of structures and algorithms to improve the collection, storage, classification, retrieval, integration, analysis, and dissemination of quantitative and qualitative biomedical data. Examples of informatics tools and resources supported by this program are: databases, standards for enhanced interoperability, collaborative analysis environments, data modeling and representation, and techniques for the integration of heterogeneous data, rational data-driven design of experiments, visualization of data, and digital representation of rich qualitative data. This program is intended to support NIBIB’s other program areas in biomedical imaging and bioengineering researchers.

Grantees supported in this program area are encouraged to adhere to community-based standards and vocabularies and to openly share software resources developed with NIBIB funding.
